“10 million ppl in Florida” … I went to church with my grandmother 2 weeks ago and that’s what was written on the side of one of the bibles. “10 million ppl in Florida”

Ever since then I couldn’t get it out of my head.

I have googled it though… I know that there is approximately 19.8 million ppl in Florida now. So the bible’s graffiti is outdated in that regard.

Still, written on the bible I happened to use read, “10 million  people in florida.”… I can’t help but to relate that random information into some sort of positivity. It was written on a bible for goodness sake!

I reasoned that it was a reminder for me. God’s way of saying, “Yo you might be single, but not forever… There’s still time.”

It’s just hard to hold on to that truth when everyone elses’ love-life is progressing.

I’m sure someone said, ” I love you” for the first time to their paramour today. And it’s Saturday afternoon somewhere… So I know happy lovers are about to tie the knot. I have the joy of planning events (mostly weddings) therefore, you can trust me when I say Love is in the Air. People are moving forward and sharing their lives.

Then why do I feel like I’m in a fishbowl.

Isolated and stationary. Watching others go by.

I’m not bitter… or delusional.

No I’m patiently waiting for you to come fish me out.
