I don't want to go into what George Michael was probably referring to in his song titled "Fastlove", but in a world where almost everything is literally a click away many seem to believe that love could also be available in that form.
No, I'm not talking about dating sites, that's a whole different ball game. What I'm saying is that true love cannot be on your "to do" list.
When love is defined as 'an intense feeling of deep affection' it only stands to reason that time is clearly an important issue in this matter. You cannot develop such an intense feeling overnight, well at least not the kind of feeling that will last, or one that you can call love.
Yes, we are all equipped with a phenomenal decision making tool called intuition, and nine times out of ten it is the most precise. However, sometimes people's impulsiveness can often override their intuition.
This is where the problem lies. We live in a world where almost everyone, men and women, have placed their personal ambitions at the forefront. Now although there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, it does tend to affect other areas in one's life. The reason is that we dedicate very little time to anything else, be it family, friends, or intimate relationships.
So we may believe at times, with all good intentions, that we're relying solely on our intuition, only to find out that it was actually just a spur of the moment. Sometimes we just need to slow things down, it's that simple.
This particular blog post is dedicated to a good friend, who might hopefully benefit from it in his personal life.
Happy birthday Joseph!
