Exactly seven years ago today, I woke up extremely annoyed. That night I was supposed to be going on a blind date. Truthfully, I was tired of getting set up on dates. Lately, everyone and their mama was trying to set me up and it was becoming super annoying and so uncomfortable. For 2005, one of my new years resolution was never to go on a blind date again. But my friend kept insisting that I meet this guy. Apparently he was wickedly smart, funny and resembled The Rock. I'd heard all of that before (well except the Rock part) and wasn't too interested. But just to make my friend happy, I decided to go. That night I was meeting the guy in the city. An hour before the date was to begin, my roommate walked into the apartment. I was having a lazy day, still in my pajamas watching reruns of The Golden Girls. She asked me, "Aren't you supposed to be getting ready for your date?" I responded, "Girl, I"m pretty sure this will be nothing" She said, "Stop thinking like that, this may be the best date ever. Get ready!" I shrugged my shoulders and continued to watch my fave girls: Rose, Dorothy, Blanche and Sophia. About 15 minutes later, I decided maybe I should get ready. So I threw on an old shirt and jeans, put my hair in a bun, and was about to leave but for some reason something told me to head back, change and actually try to look decent. So I did.

In life we all make plans for ourselves, whether it's in our career, in our personal lives, things that we say we will never do, or we will do, but sometimes the unexpected can happen. Maybe you'll meet someone that's totally not your type. Maybe a new opportunity will come your way that you're not too sure about. Don't automatically dismiss it or them, because in the end, you may lose out on the best thing for you.
Happy Anniversary to my teddy bear.
Love you to pieces.
Thanks for showing me what love is.
