I can remember in middle school and high school having crushes on certain girls. I remember just wanting to be near them any time that I could. If I had class with them, I was super excited. If I was going to see them at lunch, I would count the minutes on the clock. Weekends where our paths would cross, were such a highlight. I can remember that there were times where I would go the long way through the hallways between classes, just so I would pass them and we could say hi. I would almost be late for class, but at least we said hello. I was thinking about some of this the other day, based on something someone said to me. This principle hit me – We want something bad enough, we will do the work. We will do the work for a certain job. We will invest the time for our personal health. We want to learn a trade or read a book, we will do the work. If want a relationship, we will do all we can from our end to make it go. We will even go the long way through the halls…just to see what we want.
Good stuff! This really gives someone the gift of an opportunity to show how much they care…or not.
