I ran into someone recently who I often thought of as a person who "settled" for less than she deserved.
She was a bubbly charismatic gem who had found a not so shining knight to spend her life with... and I often wondered why.
A girl who had everything going for her, found a man who wasn't her equal but simply her other half.
And where I once thought that was a shame, and she'd spend her life miserably for sure... I now wonder if maybe she's the one who's thinking clearly. She's the one who has a realistic idea of what love is and will be.
Because her life won't be easy with him.
It won't be "the best" the world has to offer.
But it might still be enough for her.
So while plenty of women have spent years looking for Mr. Perfect, she hasn't wasted any time. She'll have her mate and her marriage and her happily ever after.
And she now has me wondering if being the happiest isn't the most important thing after all...
