Old Becomes New Again

[dropcap custom_class=”normal”] E[/dropcap]verything old becomes new again, that the saying right? Well, what if you do not want the old? Sometimes there is a reason why something old should not be new again. Yes, there is the nostalgia that goes with old and comfortable, but is it reliable? Do you want to go back?

What has got me thinking about old things? Well, I got ex-boyfriends suddenly texting me and trying to contact me out the blue. It wasn’t just one, it was three of them to be exact.

One did want a second chance, it sort of happened, but let’s just say there will not be a third. Yes, he already had that second chance and blew it. The other two I think are having mid-life crises.

What is ironic, about all three is that they are all very busy men. In fact, they are so busy that they didn’t even have time for a cup of coffee. That was what broke us up. I got tired of waiting for them. Yeah, I don’t mind busy, but as I get older, my belief is if you can not take 5 minutes out your schedule to just get a cup of coffee, then you’re not worth my time.

I do attract these busy, professional guys. Two of the three guys are doctors, they work around the clock. They like that I understand this and the patience because  I work in healthcare. I know what it is like. I also get have been taken advantage of because I am so understanding.

Your gut will always lead you right. I was told this a long time ago and I realized it is true. It is when we start thinking and over thinking that we end up in some type of mess. If your gut gives you a feeling, listen to it, it doesn’t lead you wrong. So yes everything old can be new again, but sometimes your gut will tell you to not make that old new again.
