…of more love, more passion, of anywhere or anything other than where we are right now.
We get so settled into our lives and spaces, and we begin to feel bored….discontent.
We look over the fences of our lives and longingly gaze into the dreamy world of others.
The world we think is so much better and easier….and happier.
“We should be happy like that,” we convince ourselves.
We long for it.
We think on it.
We desire it.
We need it.
We think we need it.
I know it well.
Watching romantic movies and dreaming….longing to be loved like that.
All the while pushing away the one who truly does.
I know me.
I get distracted.
I get hopeless.
I get complacent.
I am just…. so incredibly imperfect.
I felt myself pulling away, creating a distance that didn’t need to be there….
The worst thing you can do is look over the fence.
Because that world you think you see?
It isn’t real.
You don’t see the flaws and imperfections and the dirty underwear on the floor.
If you do the work to make it that way.
