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.
