Somewhere, the person you will be with and love foreverandeveramen is sitting down with a therapist to (finally) work through those issues. They’re starting to think about signing up for that online dating site.
They’re willing to actually listen when their friend tells them – for the fifth time – that they’ve got someone to set them up with. (You.)
Somewhere, the CEO of your dream company is thinking “You know, we really need to hire a few more people.” Someone is typing up a job description for your fantasy job – for which you are perfectly qualified. Someone is vacating a position that would be the right fit for you.
Somewhere, there’s an empty spot on a trivia team that only you can fill.
There’s a girls’ night out that needs someone who’s going shout “This is my jam!” and run onto an empty dance floor.
There’s a dreamy corner apartment that’s about to be vacated.
There’s a sweet little puppy that someone just found in a parking lot – and he’s waiting for you at the animal shelter.
Maybe these things aren’t quite ready. Maybe it’ll be a few more weeks (or months or years) before they’re ripe. But don’t worry. They’re coming.
