A second chance.
This past week has been like a surreal dream to me and it’s all because of a text message I had received about a month ago.
William is an English boy that I met briefly when in Malaysia over two years ago. We had only met for about 6 hours, and then I left for my flight to Penang and he left for Borneo. After spending a short period together, it was strange that we both had a strong gravitation towards each other. And so we continued to stay in touch, him living in London and me in Australia, now New York. I have actually written about him briefly on my blog. I tried to locate the post but couldn’t find it.
Will texted me a month ago telling me that he was going to be visiting New York soon to see one of his best friends, and hopefully me. I’m really glad he did. This past week has been amazing. Spending time with such a great guy has really solidified inside me what I want out of life. Seeing him happy with who he is, what he is doing, his direction in life and his future has inspired me.
I feel as though this past week has been a second chance for me. I was given the opportunity to get to know Will further, share more of our lives together and hopefully grow a fonder friendship. He is someone I can see myself dedicating time to. I always have time for the genuine people. Who knew a brief encounter with an English lad in Malaysia would leave such an impression on me?
This blog post is about showing everyone and to remind myself that fate does happen. The world is a mysterious place. Strange and wonderful things happen all the time. I’m all about embracing those moments.
Everybody, meet Will.
