Willing

She said…

Not every moment needs to be filled with conversation

Or noise that offers no reprieve

By nature, I am a very quiet individual

But I am always willing to listen and converse

Not every moment needs to be filled with activities

That reduces the lining of our wallets/purses

Priceless gifts are often those which cost nothing

I would be a willing participant in what brings you joy

Not every day is going to be filled with sunshine and roses

But we can adapt by splashing in mud puddles and dancing in the rain

Moods can be lifted and emotions embraced where there is acceptance

I would be willing to open my heart and invite you in

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Willingness is vital in the beginning of a relationship/friendship

But it is crucial in its progression

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For a time, many are willing to explore each other’s needs

Until a certain level of comfort is reached in knowing them

But the reality is, none of us are mind readers

Even with our knowing

And this can be a pitfall in any relationship

As familiarity can breed nonchalance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is what she said.

    Amazing, Belinda! That sums up the past 30 years of my life.
