Don’t ever let anyone tell you that falling in love is not fate. In a world of 7.1 billion people, think of the carefully orchestrated story that brought you and your significant one together? If you stop and contemplate for a moment, you will realize that a million little things had to happen in precise order, over the course of history, to bring the two of you to that single point in time when you met. I don’t care if you met in school, on a bus, or at a concert. I don’t care if you met while living in the same town, or if you met as two dots in the ether discovering each other’s tumblr blogs on a random hashtag. You can’t tell me it wasn’t fate. Of all the towns in the world for your family to move, of all the schools in your town, of all the students in your school, of all the eyes on your tumblr, of all the faces at your concert, of all the jobs in your state, of all the customers at your job; no matter what the circumstances of your meeting, you can’t tell me that fate didn’t put the two of you in front of each other - with eyes and heart wide open, ready to embrace the love! Every experience in your life led you to that person, and every experience in their life led them to you. The dreaded things you learned in school that proved to be great conversation topics when you first talked. The song you heard yesterday which happened to be her favorite. The book she begrudgingly read and returned late to the library, the day she met you there. Had she returned it on time, she would have never walked inside to pay her 10 cent fine. The ex-girlfriend who broke his heart the same time your ex-boyfriend broke yours. Had your painful detachments not been synchronized, you wouldn’t have discovered such a beautiful future in one another.
