Let the Unexpected take over… at least once in your life

I had a small epiphany when I was in Annecy, France yesterday. The combination of perfect blue water (Lake Annecy has this mesmerizing blue color), beach (yup, there is an actual sandy beach by the lake), and sun (in the Alps, contrary of what you might think) have this magical way of inspiring me. And there is this French like romance in the air that makes you loose yourself into the blues and… simply dream. So, I was thinking of how I’ve had my share of loves, dissapointments, amazing moments and less great ones. I have made mistakes but also made people happy. The circle of… love life, I guess, what can I say? 🙂 But what I’ve discovered is that the best kind of love is the unexpected one. You don’t just pick someone and hope it works out. No, this is different. You meet by chance, and there’s an instant connection and the chemistry between you is way above your head – there’s nothing you can do about it. And you just talk and notice the way their lips curve when they smile or the color of their eyes and all at once you know you’re either lucky or screwed. Or at least, that’s what I’ve learned in the last 30 years. 

So cherish it if it happens to you for as long as it lasts. It doesn’t have to be forever because all that matters is that you live it, feel it to the fullest. Let go of the rules, of what you think it is expected from you… just let it take over you. You will always regret the things you did not do, more than the things you’ve done. And… from what I’ve seen, despite what most people think, life can bless you more than once with this kind of love. You just have to surrender to it, not fight it. Act hopeless, and let it be magical. Never Settle until you feel that! It’s just an advice from a unicornian optimistic over the top romantic person that I am :). If you love yourself as you should, you owe it to yourself against all odds!
