Do you remember… Your first love?
Do you remember your first love? This was something I overheard a young woman ask her friend today. She then went on to tell her friend how her first love had emailed her after so many years. That’s when the elevator reached the lobby and I left.
I don’t know why that conversation made me think about my first love. But I did, and I have to admit that yes, I still do remember my first love. Actually I think of him constantly. I personally think that it’s hard to forget the first true love of our lives.
I’m not sure if it’s hard to forget about the first love in your life because we tend to remember only the good things. Maybe it’s because that first love is what introduces us to so many new and wonderful things. Or is it because it was the very first time that our mood depended on whether or not you got to see that special someone. Perhaps it’s the way that person made you feel that is what keeps you thinking about them. Regardless of the reason, everyone’s first love will always hold a special place in their hearts.
Sometimes your first love is nothing but a memory. A memory of a wonderful chapter of your life. Sometimes your first love is the first person you see in the morning and the last person you kiss at night.
Sometimes your first love is in your life once, and when they’re gone you never see or hear about them again. Sometimes your first love returns to your life after much heartache.
For those that are lucky enough to have their first loves return to live another chapter in their lives. Some return as a wonderful and much needed friend. Some as a wonderful and much needed lover. Some return to give closure, because your learn that they have grown and changed as time has passed. Some people may change in a good way. Some may have gone through their own heartache. A heartache so big that has left them with fears, doubts, and pain.
Some return to help you continue on, and end the current chapter you are living. Some return to continue from where you left off, and remain with you forever.
Regardless if your first love is in your life or not. Or if you currently have a love, our are between loves. Know that you are a special person. You deserve to have your wishes come true. Enjoy your life to the fullest, each and every single day. We all deserve someone who will carry us off, and give us a reason to thank God that they are in our lives.
May you find your night in shining armor, or your princess worth rescuing. <3
