It might never happen

These are the exact words someone once said to me. That someone is now my husband. You never know if things will work out, but wouldn't you rather know that you tried and just followed your heart whether be for love, career, hobby, or just even whether to have orange juice or apple juice for breakfast. You wouldn't ever have to think WHAT IF I had done that. You will have known that you did try. You lived a little. I had more people not believe in and try and talk me out of moving to England. You won't know anyone, you won't have a job, You and David have only been going out for a few months. The list goes on of reasons WHY I could have stayed put in little ole Fayetteville, Arkansas. I chose to just close my eyes and followed the wind. The wind took  me to rainy grey England. I didn't arrive like Mary Poppins with her umbrella nor did I fly here like Wendy followed Peter Pan. Was I scared it wouldn't work out? I'd be lying if I said I wasn't. Who isn't scared? Love is a scary thing, but it's also the most beautiful thing in life. Love is literally what keeps the world going round. Not just love for each other, love for anything. It's what keeps people thriving for work. The love of it. Of course not everything works out and sometimes we leap and we might break an ankle, but it's nice to know for that brief moment you were flying. You gave it a chance. Next time you might do things differently and it might happen, but it also might never happen. Thankfully for me it did work out. It was the best decision I have ever made. I'm sure there will be things that come my way that just might not. I still will always leap. All I really wanted to say was if your ever in a dilemma about trying something new, making a big move, taking on a new career, starting a business,take a trip, fall in love, etc. JUST DO IT!  People might think your crazy, there might be a million and one reasons on why you might fail. Prove them wrong. Beat the odds. Go out into the world and LIVE. When you come to your last days of living you want to look back and know you really cherished every moment. There isn't anything you SHOULD have done. It's easy to think about doing things, then tomorrow comes and then next thing you know twenty years have passed and now the opportunity has gone. It will become a distant dream that you once had. It's so hard to think you could lose everything but hey it's life. Tomorrow could be the last. Let's all make the best of it. 


  1. seems like it was only yesterday that you were making this decision. let the record show, i knew you wouldn't regret it:)

  2. I'm so glad your husband met my boyfriend, so I got to meet you xxx
