I thought a lot about my future today.  I thought about the friends I haven’t met yet.  The lovers whose lips I haven’t tasted yet.  The successes I haven’t even dreamed of achieving yet.  And the pain I have yet to feel. At 31, I’m only halfway into my life story.

Its crazy how in the moment, everything that we experience can seem so monumental.  Our bestfriend betrays us and we feel we can never trust again.  Our significant other fails us and we vow never to love again.  We hit rock bottom and we are certain that we’ll never come back from the loss.  Laying our head against our pillows at night, we fall asleep convinced that life couldn’t get any worse.

But after so many tomorrows, we wake up and its as if someone hit a reset button on our life overnight.  All of the pain, doubts, trust issues…it all feels lighter.  Not gone entirely, but lighter.  We find that we’re able to trust a little more.  We cross paths with someone who makes us feel lovesick again.  We decide once more that we are worth the risk.  And like magic, we come to the realization that life really isn’t so bad.

So although I’ve been feeling let down by the absence of my friend, I found comfort in knowing that in a few tomorrows, I’ll be good once again.  In time, my heart will be beating for someone else – whether I want it to or not.  Because if life hasn’t taught me anything else, its taught me that time is the real MVP.  I’m just along for the ride.
