Ok, I bet you are wondering...sorry!
My back has been bothering me a bit & my niece came in for the weekend & well, I've been going out with this guy & ummm.... ;-) I'm having a great time. He makes me laugh & ya, at the risk of finding out still later he is a dog & my heart getting bruised (again), he makes me feel so special and he treats me so wonderfully. I have been the one that has been quite hesitant. The first night he was up in my face, literally nose to nose, getting serious on how he will treat me and that he will wait for me to be confortable with him and trust him ...I don't know what he picked up on me that he could sense it, but he did. He is like me when I think of songs & movies. He gave me the example of Garth Brooks "The Dance" and "Standing Outside The Fire" & I love those songs & do believe it but it is so hard to still stand or dance inside the fire.
Standing Outside the Fire:
Well last night I think I let go of a lot & God I was thinking he would get scared & run but so far he isn't. It was harder than I thought taking the risk again but I also knew if I didn't open up then I would like him more & more & it would be harder if he left later. I think what was really shocking me was how comfortable I do feel with him so quickly. It is just odd. Like I should be more held back. I don't know I'm just starting to let go & go with it as he says and whatever will happen will happen. I'm thinking somehow the endorphins he is managing to kick in are helping my back too! HA! ;-)
So I offer both these songs today as inspiration so that you chose to Stand Inside the Fire in whatever area ofyour life you are hesitating and that in the end you will understand it was still worth The Dance.
