The Return of Mr. Big

Love is a terrifying ordeal, and someone very wise once told me we do things for two reasons, fear and love. Love defies all laws of the universe, it is faster than light, it outlives both its source and its destination and leaves a lasting impression for future observers, something no other force in our known universe can do. We open our selves up to rejection, to devastation and we must ask ourselves why? It is not in our nature to be single, we group together out of necessity and throughout the ages we've developed very intricate mating rituals in order to determine the best mate. We all look for different things, but I think the one thing so many of us overlook, is that sometimes things just work. You don't know why, it may even drive you crazy not to know why but sometimes, and this is one of those times, things just are. Being in love is a constant state of vulnerability, it requires you to trust another human being with your heart, to know that they won't reject the offering you give them and as terrified as you are, you must realize how equally terrifying it is for them. So many of us don't realize how much influence we hold over our loved ones.

But this is not the ending, this is the start, the very beginning of a journey we started long ago. Mr. Big is not perfect, he knows he's not perfect and neither am I (though pretty damn close ;0) Adventures will ensue, the future is uncertain, but it's all going to be okay  because I know he'll remind me to not panic and I know he'll always have an extra towel. (see the nerdy dictionary on that one, lol)
