I smile recklessly and I love excessively. I live today knowing I have no other day until tomorrow. Now is my moment. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is a mystery, but today, today is my gift (present).

Reaping where I didn't labour

I listened to a preaching from John 4 about the Samaritan woman, and vs. 38 caught my attention. I was very keen when the man of God said, ‘some of you labour so much, yet it has been commanded you go out and reap where you did not labour’. In my interpretation, my relationships have been crap because it’s never the right one. 4-8 months in the relationship you realise the person is not right, yet you feel you have put so much labour. I’d imagine there are people who labour for years and years, and finally when they leave each other, they have both changed so much in the way they see each other. A good example would be a man who keeps forgetting birthdays. After years of the woman mourning and constantly reminding him, he finally gets the hang of it such that he would never forget the next woman’s birthdays.

This weekend I’m off on a date, a blind one. I’ve not met him yet, but we’ve been talking for the last 2 weeks. He sounds nice; I’m hoping it turns out worth my while as I look forth to reaping another woman’s labour (wishful). Wish me luck.
