Oh my word
This is horrendous can’t believe how lazy I was that took me such a long time to write again. Just when i was thinking and procrastinating, thinking and procrastinating, thinking and procrastinating thinking and zzzzzz “bam” I fell asleep. LOL
Just then “Bzzzzzt”, “Bzzt”, “Bzzzzzzt”
“Knock, Knock, Knock”
“Knock, Knock, Knock”
“Uncle, Uncle, Uncle” screams my niece. I dragged my sorry little arse out of the bed and thought dang I was hoping for some sleep and maybe some inspiration in my sleep. “Yes” I said to my niece as I carried her. “Phone, Phone” she points furiously at the phone.
As picked up the phone it turns out it was one of my usual friends calling to whine and ask me out for shopping. “Happened again, Claire” I asked with a condescending tone knowing it’s gotta be another bad breakup.
“Yeah you wanna head out for the usual”
“Sure let me get dressed and I will meet you later”
We met up at Velocity had lunch and started to shop surprisingly although this time it was the same object of desire shoes……. there was a small twist. She actually wanted a pair of gym shoes so she can start working out. As we shop and look and try on the various pairs of shoes available I couldn’t help but notice the similiarity in the way she behave when she looks for her prospective half. Reviews after reviews, and opinions after opinions from her friends on what the perfect pair is like but none of her own views. After almost the whole day gone, 6 malls, and countless amount of bitching she finally settled on a pair which she didn’t even tried on. At which point I was too tired to nagged at her so I just let it go. and we had dinner and head our own separate ways
Two weeks later I decided to go hiking so I called Claire.
“Hey gal wassup? You feel like going for a hike.”
“Yeah sure how about Macritchie.” Yadda yadda yadda and we were off the next day. This was when I noticed she wasn’t wearing the same shoes she bought.
“Hey Claire what happened to your perfect shoes lol, tired of it already”
“Nah I went home try it out and realise it was the wrong size”
“Geez gal after all that and whats up with this pair dont you like have a problem with dark colored shoes, the brand and not to mentioned the dull design ………” I asked
“Yeah but turns out this is perfect, it is exactly right for me the size is right, the contours fit my feet fine, the darker tones just mean I dont have to wash it as often seeing how often I was my shoes lol”
“Uh huh wished you look at your relationships the same way”
And how true was that most of the time we are so obsessed with what we have been taught or shown what is the perfect man by our parents, peers and friends that we failed to look at it at our point of view. One of which must have money, house and car or good looking, suave and charming. I’m not saying the above is not important but isn’t finding the one that suits you more important. Isn’t the below also true:
Money can buy you almost anything but not the time and attention a guy is willing to spend on you when he truly loves you
Looks are a but a fading characteristic and if he only loves you for your looks how can he still love you in 10, 20 or even 30 years down the road
especially when like the right pair of shoes he is suppose to walk down the path of life with you for a long long time to come. So I hope to all those who are reading look at your current situation at a different light remembering the perfect one may not always be the right one. The right one however will always stay just as it is the right one.
To all those who say the above I hope that you will be able to find the person who you can say the below to:
You may not be the perfect one, but trust me when I say these you will always be the right one”
