“She wasn’t exactly sure when it happened. Or even when it started. All she knew for sure was that right here and now, she was falling hard and she could only pray that he was feeling the same way.” ~ Nicholas Sparks
It’s the best feeling in the world, isn’t it? Whether it’s our first love, or a new love, or a perhaps a searing love that springs up just when we thought we could never ever love again—there’s nothing like that feeling that happens when we first start to fall down, down, down into the rabbit hole of l’amour.
When that certain someone starts to make your heart pound. When you first discover the unique magic of another human being—a magic that can hold you captivated for hours upon hours, to the point that it hurts when you have to say goodbye.
When you can’t stand the agony of the minutes crawling by until you can see him (or her) again—and then feel that exuberant joy exploding in your chest the moment you set eyes upon this extraordinary individual again.
When you can talk for hours…or just lie beside each other, quietly, in perfect contentment. When life becomes sweet kisses, and delightful laughter, and passionate ecstasy. Pure euphoria. Bliss.
It’s that certain special feeling that can’t (and won’t) last forever—but by god, when we’re in it, it’s the best feeling in the world, and we just cannot get enough.
So, for anyone who has ever felt this way—and especially for those who are in the throes of falling for someone right now—this is for you.
