I have posted this before, but it's definitely the sort of topic that has been up for debate a lot recently with someone I know. I'm of the belief that when the time is right, you'll know. Fate will take you where you need to go or keep you where you need to be. It will open your eyes and your heart to the right person. (After you make yourself ready to be open to such things...)

That's not to say be a hermit. That's also not to say go all out crazy while you wait. I think there's a happy medium.

But until the moment finally comes, grow your own avocado tree. And chin up!

LORELAI: Someday you'll meet someone, and you'll just know it’s right. You won't want to hesitate. You'll just know.

RORY: I hope so.

LORELAI: I really do believe it.

RORY: So I guess no avocado trees.

LORELAI: Well, no avocado tree.

RORY: You know, I think I'll get my own avocado tree.

LORELAI: See? You could get your own cherry tree, get your own peanut tree, just have peanut butter all day long.

RORY: Peanuts don't grown on trees. They grow under the ground.

LORELAI: Whatever. My point is you can have anything you want.

RORY: Oh, yes. It’s wide open.

LORELAI: What do you mean, peanuts don't grow on trees?

RORY: Mom, trust me. I'm a college graduate.


(PS. Part of/most of this script sounds strange out of context. Go watch Gilmore Girls!)

If your goal is to get healthier you have to do the work to make it happen, not sit at home watching TV. When it comes to finding someone, you have to put yourself out there if you ever want to find him.

I do think there is a good bit of luck, fate, karma, or whatever you want to call that thing that makes random stuff happen like you and your soul mate from hundreds of miles away meeting via the Interwebs back when it ran on vacuum tubes. (Hi Myron!) But you have to show up and make yourself available for it to happen. It won't just fall into your lap because you're a good person and deserve it.

Oh, I agree Charles. 100%. I just think it shouldn't be something to obsess over. Sometimes things work. Sometimes they don't. And if you're not ready now, then one day might be - your perspective will be different. But until then there are other people, things and plants to grow :)

And DBH, I'll check it out! PS. Send me a picture of your baby! xo.
