Stuck in a Moment

And if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass
It’s just a moment
This time will pass

U2 ‒ Stuck in a Moment

I’m a huge fan of U2. I think that a lot of their lyrics state the obvious while delving past the outer shell of things to the meat of the matter and some inner hope. This is today’s song. Not much to say, really.

I am trying to learn to realign my wants, needs and expectations. It is easy to say I’m doing it, but I find that actually doing it is another matter entirely. I want a relationship, a committed, trusting, loving, sexually rampant relationship. I need to feel wanted, adored, sexual and satisfied. However, my expectations of finding the blissful collide of my wants and needs are waning. I’m starting to consider options that I had not considered before. The act of deciding that something other than this culmination of wants and needs will be okay, and really being okay with it is not as easy.

Am I talking in circles? I’m sleepy as hell. Sorry for that. I want a relationship. I find someone (not plural or singular, just vague you nosy bastards) who does not want a relationship, but whom I am incredibly attracted to and want to spend time with. So… what? After thought, I don’t want my expectations to get in the way of me spending time with someone (again, stop being nosy), so I change my expectations. I actively decide to suspend them.

In this moment, this blip of my life, I am unsure of how to progress or what the destination of the journey is. I’m not so great with uncertainty, but I can adjust. I am flexible, if anything. So while I feel like I’m picking my way down an unfamiliar pathway, I know that things will become clearer eventually. In the meantime… I’ve got myself stuck in a moment.

If you hold on tight to what you think is your thing
You might find you're missing all the rest
Well she'll run up into the light, surprised her arms are open
Her minds eye is seeing things from a better side than most can dream
On a clearer road I feel, oh you could say she's safe
Whatever tears at her, whatever holds her down
And if nothing can be done, she'll make the best of what's around

so let me ask you this , why would you change what you want just to spend time with someone?? just because your attracted to him and i'll assume he's attracted to you doesnt mean shit if you dont both want the same thing . dont sell your self short just because he rev's your motor . life is to short to waste time making compromise's with your self and what you want . do you remember the ....second or third e -mail i sent you?? i wont settle for anything less than that , doesnt mean i wont have fun while i search but at the same time im not gonna get hung up on a never gonna happen situation , but thats just me and my opinion , and you know what they say about those . holla back
