You know, sometimes, Twitter IS good for something besides perversion and stalking your favorite celebrity. The tweets you see above come courtesy of Ms. @alexisbelon (follow her, btw), and immediately struck a chord with me for some reason.
It makes sense though; I don’t really believe that I’m the only one who should be taking heed to that advice. The way relationships are now, or the single world in general, as soon as one finds someone WORTH keeping around, he or she starts to think long term instead of staying in the moment.
Once people have reached the age where the superficial “relationship” no longer is cutting it, the short-term fling, summer romance thing just isn’t as appealing. Time becomes more of a commodity, not to be wasted. You get so caught up in that infatuation and, eventually love, that you dream of the future – whatever your individual vision of a couples’ future may be. You forget to live in the moment; you neglect to let that significant other know that “I love you RIGHT NOW. Regardless of what the future holds - you will never be more beautiful to me than you are this very second.”
It’s like a game of chess – sometimes you’re so concerned with being 5 moves ahead, that you forget about the move you’re making NOW, and all of a sudden, you’ve lost a pawn, a knight, even the queen in some cases. Sometimes checkmate is at ONE move, yet you’re 4 EXTRA moves ahead in your mind. Slow down.
.... Carpe Diem....
