Where Love Lies

I just finished a book that literally felt like my own personal memoir…

I have read thousands of books… thousands… and I have never ever read a book where the characters, plot lines, and relationships were so unmistakably similar to my own life and relationships. It’s even more mind blowing that a simple novel could have that much impact on me believing that I have indeed made the best decision in my life.

After reading this book (and heavily reflecting on my life this last year) I can say this…

Sometimes a person’s judgement’s can be severely clouded by moments of “what ifs” and “maybes”. Sometimes you can share a beautiful moment with someone and wonder if there could be something more.
And sometimes it is OKAY to wonder if you chose the right path in your love life.

But then you have to step back, get out of that moment, look at the big picture, and see everything that you could lose just by walking away with someone new.

Reflection complete.

  1. I feel the book “The Stranger” by Albert Camus easily sums up my emotional standpoint on life. It could be like a memoir, minus something the main character does that lands him in jail. Anyway, I say that cause I relate to the sentiment of a random book being super touching.

  2. 😁.

    This applies really well to my continual self-doubting about how I’m spending the day. I lose so much through what-ifs and maybes! Right I’m gone! 😄

  3. I think we all get caught up in the “what ifs” and wonder if we have made the right decisions in our life, especially when it comes to love. I commend you for taking the time to reflect on your choices. How eye opening! Mind sharing the name of the book?
