[Reverb10] Wisdom

Today’s prompt: Wisdom Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out? (Author: Susannah Conway)

The wisest decision I made this year was to let love win.

My love of laughter dragged me to DC Improv to see some of my favorite comics.

My love of friendships took me away from the East Coast and to Texas for the first time to spend a weekend bonding with amazing people.

My love of writing had me blogging through the worst and best times.

My love of love had me moving in with my boyfriend for the first time even though it was scary for both of us.

My love of real people gave me the courage to cut ties when it was necessary so I could move forward.

My love of being in charge of my own life gave me the courage to take a risk and NOT go back to full-time work until I am ready.

My love of New York now has me looking for full-time jobs in NYC. (I’ll let you know how that turns out)

My love of life has me going forward every day, even if I feel like I can’t take any more disappointment because tomorrow always comes.

Have I stumbled? Of course. Has my heart been broken? Naturally.

Do I regret any of my decisions?

Absolutely not.

It’s like Hugh Grant says in my favorite movie: “General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion… love actually is all around.”

    “My love of life has me going forward every day, even if I feel like I can’t take any more disappointment because tomorrow always comes…”

    Yes! This is what keeps me going a lot of times…tomorrow does always come and with it a chance to let go of yesterday’s disappointments and to prepare for tomorrow’s successes and joys… 🙂
