It Can Happen To You

This quote translates to: If you like what you are feeling, it will be worth the risk.

This quote reminds me of that song by Sheryl Crow:  If it makes you happy, it can’t be that bad. That song came out around 1998.  The lesson still rings true today.  Even if you identify a certain way, or have a certain type of person you would date, if you feel something for someone, that should tell you something. That revelation, that feeling, is telling you to go for it. You may not realize it at the time, but this is what life is all about, taking a risk, when you have an instant gut feeling about something. You will be surprised at how often you will be right, and how strong your intuition will get as a result of following that hunch.

This quote also reminds me of the show, Sex and The City. Do you remember the part where Charlotte meets her future husband to be, and says that the sex is amazing, but that he just isn’t, “her type.”? I remember those few episodes. Charlotte loved being with him, but she just couldn’t accept the fact that he wasn’t the usual guy she would typically date. Sometimes, even if you haven’t been around the block that often, you still have to go looking in another neighborhood to find your ideal match. Yes, it could be another zip code, or another gender all together, but sometimes you just have to date outside of that box that we like to call, “our type.”

If it happened to Charlotte, and it happened to Sheryl, well then, whose to say it didn’t happen to me…..
