There’s an old song performed by Phil Collins called “Can’t Hurry Love”. Yes, it’s true The Supremes did perform it first, but for some reason Mr. Collins’s version resonates with me better –
The reason I love this song is because the lyrics seem to be reading my mind. Some of my favorite verses are –
“But how many heartaches Must I stand before I find a love
When I feel my strength, yeah It’s almost gone
How long must I wait How much more can I take Before loneliness will cause my heart Heart to break?
No I can’t bear to live my life alone I grow…
No I can’t bear to live my life alone I grow impatient for a love to call my own But when I feel that I, I can’t go on You can’t hurry love No, you just have to wait”
It’s so hard to want something as important as love and not have it. I am simply tired of waiting. I keep telling myself not to rush into marriage but instead wait for the right man. I could’ve easily gotten married by now if I just wanted to be a “Mrs.” or wear a ring on my left hand but I’ve been trying to wait for the right one to come along. Marrying the wrong person never ends well (EVER), so why should anyone feel the need to hurry love?
Regardless of how old I am or how old I’m getting I’m still not going to rush love. It will come. Some people find it in their 20s others in their 30s and even some in their 40s. I certainly hope I’m not one of the ones who has to wait for their 40s; but I do wish that love would hurry up & find me.
