Caution: Life Ahead

Tonight I’m going to venture into an uncharted space.  A space I have never had the opportunity to explore or probably even witness first hand.  This dark area is constantly changing and always unique for each traveler.  Those experiencing this space are usually with a partner in crime, a partner in exploration.  Some take years, some take months, some may only need a matter weeks to find their way through this ever evolving place of interest.  

Two of my best, if not my two best friends are getting married.  (I feel like this is the proper time to mention that one is a boy and the other is a girl)  I was very close to both throughout most of my time in Arizona.  The two’s relationship ignited out of no where on one of my frequent visits to the Valley of the Sun.  It was instantaneous, they just worked together, they just made sense.  

Some may say it’s too early to go down that path, that path that takes 50% of those who go down it, right into Splitsville.  So if that is the case, why not take their time, get to know each other even better than they feel they currently do?  Why does this move feel so right for them?  Why is their certainty so strong?  Is this the stuff that make romantic comedies a tad bit true?  

My next point is couples that take their time, however long it may be for them to decide that in fact their counter part is the one they want to sit shot gun on their life long road trip.  For whatever reason, as I’m sure there are many, these two want more time to pick their destination.  Does that make them any less in love, does that take away the spark a new couple has while blazing down relationship road?  

I know couples in both circumstances and I think both are right for their decisions.  I know that in this world of wireless, instant messaging, multitasking, googling, tall mocha skim latte, hybrid, yoga, array of choices it’s good to take your time in making the choices that matter.  However, that being said I think there is weight in just pulling the trigger when something you want crosses your sight.  I don’t know which of these paths I will take, I don’t even know in what direction to start walking, but I’m sure going to enjoy the ride.

Thanks for listening

As your friends begin to drop like flies into the abyss they call marriage, you gain new ones as you walk along your own path of life, my friend... So don't fret.

Good stuff as always. And J.P. ain't bad lookin' either!
