Serendipity

line

I don’t know what is it about the past few days but I seem to be addicted to RomComs and SitComs. And yes… you may call me a soppy git, it is probably the best way to describe me anyway.

I’ve spent the past week binge-watching the romantic soppy mess that is the series “How I Met Your Mother”. I’ve laughed and even cried a bit at all the situations that happen as the plot develops and thickens.

I was talking to someone about it… Actually… No… I’ve spoken to a couple people about it… Had a few laughs and compared favorite characters… And it was during one of those chats I came to one hell of a sudden realization…

I am Ted Mosby! 

Who’s Ted Mosby you ask? Well… He is the main character on the series in question. If you don’t know him already, I’d like to introduce you to a little game I like to call:

Haaaaaaaave you met Ted? <- Insider’s joke 😉

Well, Ted is prone to questionable romantic gestures; in the pilot episode, for example, he steals a blue French horn (nicknamed “The Smurf Penis”) that was a topic of conversation in his first date with Robin (the love of his life), and then scares Robin off by telling her he is in love with her in their first date…

The whole series revolves around Ted’s attempts to find the love of his life and how in between one disastrous attempt after the other the universe conspires to introduce him to The Girl With The Yellow Umbrella. He tells the story to his kids in a bid to… hummmm know what? Watch the series! I won’t spoil it to you. :)

 

Where was I going with that?! Ah!!! Yeah! I am Ted Mosby!

I’m the guy that sees the love of his life in every turn and every try. The guy that will always jump with both feet and wears his heart in his sleeves. The one what will go down with the ship if there is half a chance that it work out in the end… That guy that believes in profound, spontaneous acts showing how I feel. I’m the hopeless romantic (with a slightly dirty mind) that needs to believe that love is not dead.

I’m the guy that told his ex wife they would get married in their first date. I’m the guy that dropped everything to start again in a new life. I’m the one that was ready to move across the ocean for the girl that stole hist heart.

The past year or so must have been one of the most complicated ones in my life in that area with all the plot twists and turns I’ve been through… And that is saying something I guess… I believe they would probably actually make Ted himself proud.

Love shouldn’t be so complicated, should it? Then again… If it weren’t, would it even be a worthy pursuit?

2015 is over, and whilst parts of it replay once and again in my mind right now, I am looking forward to what 2016 has to bring.

I am looking forward and wishing for serendipity to touch my life…

And maybe, just maybe… I’ll bump into my own girl with the yellow Umbrella… Or the Robin that returns to my life…

The morning star, bringing a 100 colors to this grey shaded heart of mine.

Serendipity…  luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for…

Maybe… just maybe…  😉
