Lets be honest, We all have that one person. The one person we cant forget. Does it mean we don’t love our spouse? Absolutely NOT! This person is your very first love. If your extremely lucky the person that your settled down with right now is your first love. if so yay for you! But if your joining the rest of the 44 million people on earth like me, who did not marry their first love (and let me say with good reason) That person is what i like to refer to as, The one that got away.
Now maybe they didn’t actually get away, More like you physically shoved them out the door! But you get my drift. Amongst all the hussle and bussle in life these days (Pre lockdown) we have screaming kids hanging off us and then big kids trying to hang off us the second we hop into bed at night, we forget. And then randomly once in a while you’ll be changing your 3rd bum for the morning or folding that basket of laundry while you listen to your little one breath on the monitor and it will HIT YOU LIKE A TON OF BRICKS (insert name here)
Into your head they pop. you feel your heart start racing, you may even crack a smile because youll think of something funny they once said. “Hmmm you think to yourself, I wonder what your doing”
*Logs onto facebook, and hits the search bar
As you scroll through photos of them happily living their new life, seeing photos of their new partner and maybe even babies Youll start to feel a little empty inside. You’ll relive those last few moments in your head. “Why did we break up again”? You might see a photo and think, “hmmm you got better with age, While you’re sitting in your trashed house wearing 3 day old pyjamas with spit up on them wondering where you took a wrong turn?
And you may even think about that person for the rest of the day. But then something magical will happen. Your little one will wake up, and be so happy to see you, or your husband will walk through the door and tell you that you look beautiful even though you know your on your 4th day with no shower. he will warmly embrace you and you’ll watch him be a dad and then you’ll realise something…
They didn’t get away, You went to exactly where you were meant to be going all along.
You just had the best pitt stop ever!!!!
