Smitten

It’s been a minute since I’ve felt this way. But I like it. I kind of feel like a schoolgirl with a secret crush. O no – what is happening here? It seems someone has caught my attention.

Excuse me, Mr. Tall & Handsome. Yes, you! You must be new around here. For I am certain, I’d remember seeing you before. That’s a statue I take notice of.  Who are you? What’s your name? Where are you from? What do you do?

I walked in the same as I’ve done hundreds of times, got right to it, but out of the corner of my eye, I caught a glimpse. Oh’ Heeeellllloooo! Appearing in my physical out of nowhere. So tall and appealing. I couldn’t help but stare. And I’m about 99.9% sure you caught me, but that’s only because you were doing the same. Clearly there’s a draw and an attraction…

And it keeps happening. It seems our paths are crossing frequently. And always when I least expect it and never when I am looking my best. I round the corner and you’re there – I cross the street and you’re passing by – I walk down the steps just as you’re taking the elevator up. Maybe it’s time we speak? Maybe one of us should introduce ourselves? I had it planned but lost all confidence and my mind went blank the minute you spoke. Sorry, you were left with a simple “thanks” and a partial smile, but that’s all I could muster. Nothing like it was planned in my head. I’ll do better next time, I swear. It’s all your fault though because you make me nervous. You’re drawing me in.

This is exciting! I’m having hopeful thoughts. I’m enjoying the wonder you’re bringing into my world. I feel struck with feelings of attraction towards you. Someone so unknown and unfamiliar. This is out of my character. This is a rare occurrence for me. I don’t allow things like this to happen. I plan things – I observe – I like to be prepared. Guess, this is showing me I need to learn sometimes being caught off guard, and not planning or preparing (and being messy) is better. Maybe the Universe truly does know what I need and when I need it more than I do. Maybe this is a lesson in letting go and allowing.

Won’t this be fun to see what happens? I am not sure of what is happening and honestly, it doesn’t matter if anything even is. The sheer excitement you’re bringing is enough. I’m wearing a smile I haven’t put on in a while. This is something I’m enjoying for whatever it may or may not be. These feels are fun!

Oh’ boy, I am smitten?!
