Ever meet someone and think,
“Yeah. I could love you.”
Is that love at first sight? Or simply being full of hope and potential?
And then you begin to get to know them a little. And you think,
“You could love me, too. And we could write our own love story. And it would be incredible.”
But then you see the obstacles; the roadblocks along the way.
The things that make it look impossible.
Things that are overwhelming, daunting.
Things that scream,
Still, your heart hopes. Your heart hangs on.
Because sometimes the risk is worth it.
Sometimes the return outweighs the investment.
Sometimes the reality of what is stands in the shadow of what could be.
