I am holding my breath……

Anytime we come across the beauty of nature or the animal kingdom, humans have a predictable pattern. We hold our breath and try not to move. As though we cannot be seen. We either maintain that stance and admire the moment, or the flight response takes over and we run like hell.

The same can be said for a 2nd chance at a relationship. Second chances are rare. Especially when dealing with people who have suffered major heartbreak. So here I am, not breathing, waiting…….watching. I am afraid to move, afraid to break this chance. What if I ruin it? What if I hurt it?

What if ………..,

Any observer of nature will tell you that the greatest moments ever caught on film were caught by waiting and watching in breathless anticipation. Because those following moments become worth all of the pain that led up to it.

So with a dialogue open, no matter how small, just knowing that, is truly worth the pain of getting here. It may not work. It may become another scar on my heart, but it might, truly might be the love that I have waited my whole life for.
