"If You Fall for the Girl Who Travels"

I resonated with so much of Sheila Tagaro's "If You Fall for the Girl Who Travels"

An amazing friend sent me the link this morning. It made my day. :)

Here's what I dig...

"She loves being herself.

She speaks what’s on her mind, even if it’s the craziest idea you’ve ever heard.

She’s confident. 

She won’t compare herself with your ex or girl friend at work. She’s sure of her unique traits that other girls don’t have.

She can only hope that you are seeing her worth.

She’s used to making her own choices. After all, traveling alone the first time was her own choosing. She knows what will make her happy. When her decision turns out to be a mistake, she won’t have regrets. She will only learn from it."

Folding and drying laundry in Paris, post-broken washing machine. Whoops.

"She craves freedom.

If you let her travel alone, she’ll regret not having you beside her. She will miss you, but she’ll forget about you once she soaks up all the delight of being on her own.

She loves being in a relationship as much as she loves being single.

She loves sharing with you, her adventures. She enjoys your company as much as she revels in her solitude. Like any other girl, she longs to love and be loved. She still believes in happy endings. She may be slow to admit it, but she’s the best version of herself when she’s in a relationship with the right person. Be that person."

"She loves deeply.

She’d be the one to break down the wall. Eventually, she will give her all to make you feel loved. Be patient.

She doesn’t cling to a man.

She’d rather catch a flight than chase a man who doesn’t value her. She doesn’t believe in rebound relationships. She knows how to make use of her time while waiting for the right man.

She’s tough.

If you hurt her, she’ll forgive you.

A girl who travels loves herself.

So if you want to keep her, don’t leave her... Instead, accept her imperfections. For with you, her journey isn’t just about booked flights and road trips anymore. It’s a journey to “happily ever after.” There will be bumps in the road but if you keep walking through it together, it will be the greatest journey you’ll ever take."
