Coincidentally Fated

 To think.  Two people are born.  Born on different days, in different years, in different towns.  Born to different parents, different families.  Two separate personalities.  Two separate experiences.  One grew up as boyish as they come, stirring up harmless trouble in the neighborhood with his friends.  While the other, shy, practiced piano and danced in her room.  They graduated from school, and went on to college, still unaware of each other's existence.  She dreamed of him her whole life.  He dreamed of her.  A faceless ideal, to an age old desire.  Is it fate to believe, when their lives collide?  Like two atoms who have spent year after year circling the atmosphere, searching for their complete likeness.  Is it fate to believe that these two strangers happen to be at the exact same place, at the exact same time?  Their eyes, suddenly meet across a dark room filled with a sea of people.  They connect.  They draw near.  Or, is it merely, pure coincidence?  The right place, at the right time, with the right chemistry?  Destiny or not, these two people met.  Their two hearts and their two souls spontaneously collided, completely unaware that their dreams just caught up to them.  And somewhere along their separate journeys, these two people became exactly who they needed to be, for that one moment in time.  That one moment that fated the rest of their lives, to become one heart and one soul.  It's an interesting thing.  To think.   

Tomorrow Husband and I celebrate our second wedding anniversary.  I will be sharing some of our wedding photos!

Reading this post, like many others I'm sure, really hit home. My husband believes in fate and destiny. When he and I met, it was exactly what you wrote "Their eyes, suddenly, meet across a dark room, filled with a sea of people.  They connect.  They draw near.  They don't let go." And like you said... destiny or not... to this day I am forever thankful for every aspect of my life that brought me to that very moment. It's hard not to believe in destiny when I look back on it all. Everything that I have gone through in life brought me to that moment and it is incredible to think!
Thank you for this post. It reminded me of how blessed I am.
Happy Anniversary Katie : )

Happy Anniversary!!! I can't wait to see the photos!!! :)

Ivana said...

This is such a beautiful post, so wonderfully written! I feel like you were writing about me and my fiancĂ©: before I met him, I never believed in destiny, or love at first sight. Meeting him completely changed my mind. I think that fate gives you the opportunity and it´s up to you to grab it and make the most of it. You did :) Happy Anniversary Katie!

OMG! Beautiful post darling!!!! Happy Anniversary!!!!!! :-D xoxoxox

Rachael said...

You know, I was actually thinking last night that I didn't believe in fate.
But reading your words, makes me think. I mean, it has to be some kind of cosmic force to bring two people together.
Your words were great to read by the way.

It's not fate, it's God.

Jenny said...

I think this is one of the most beautiful things I've ever read. It really is incredible, isn't it? I marvel sometimes that my husband and I grew up, not just in different towns, but on different continents with a whole Atlantic Ocean between us, and then happened to meet by chance in a small town in Maine.

Happy anniversary to you!

Holly said...

This is the sweetes thing that I have ever read :)
