Just Haven't Met You Yet

Engagement photo I took for my sister and brother-in-law
A friend of mine is struggling with the fact that she is 25 and newly single. The pressures of today's society and the thought of her friends and family all getting married around her has begun to worry her of her future. I do have the reputation as the "go-to girl" for a bunch of my friends when seeking advice. I'm not sure why, but I take this role on as if it were as important as anything else. I reassured her that at her young age there is nothing to worry about. We have all been there and felt the same way and the feeling passes. She, however, has been feeling this way for a few months and is very agitated about it. I gave her a section out of a book one of my cousins introduced me to a while back. There is a letter excerpt that a girl writes to her future love and it is a pretty cool way to look at the situation. Some may think it's cheesy, but I gave this quote to my friend and it made her smile instantly. She asked if I could post this on my blog, so here I am! I think single guys and girls both can kind of relate to the situation and should always have this kind of outlook on their lives. You are never too old to accomplish things. And at this day and age, the pressure can get tough but everything happens for a reason and in its own time. No need to rush or feel less than adequate at what you are doing. Things happen when you least expect if you really want to find that person...quit looking! Quit expecting it! Trust me, it works. It has happened to me..and I know many others who agree =) The excerpt from that letter in the book is posted below. Enjoy! Hope you all have a great day.
"I'm already in love with you, I can already smell your cologne and know your sweet heart, I know your the man I have been praying for and the man God has single handedly picked out for me. You don't know me yet, I don't know u either but I know the second we meet it will be the start of forever. So wait for me as I'm waiting for you because I'm coming."

  1. I totally agree. I also really adore what you said about never being too old to accomplish things. It really resonates with me.

    I'm sure she'll find someone and in the meantime have a great time.

    Thanks for sharing.
