What happens when you get that spark? Maybe it's love at first sight. Maybe it's that surge of knowing that washes over you. Maybe it's something else. But when you know it's love, why not go after it?
I think, for me anyway, years ago, I would have said, Screw love, my career comes first! But love is so hard to find, when you find it, why squander it? Jobs come and go. Careers can splinter into new found jobs elsewhere.
Keeping the status quo, not letting the plates fall from spinning may be a challenge worth fighting for instead of the unknowns that come from the pursuit of love. But is the "it" that prevents love from happening really worth it?
I have great admiration for the couples that have found love, that have discovered that piece of life's puzzle. I haven't. Not yet anyway.
