Someone once said that you make your own luck. Working smartly, on purpose, and with sticktoitiveness, the odds that opportunities step into the light along the way are better than if you opt out of a challenge or veer off course from your word.
I'm knocking on your bedroom door. You don't have to open it, just let my question come in:
What is the distance between you and your partner when you put your heads down on your pillows? The number a ruler would reveal is irrelevant because you're close. Very close.
Don't go to sleep on closeness. Never look at it as just plain ordinary. Closeness is never ordinary. Closeness is an unspoken agreement. It says: here I am, next to you. I'm right here and that means there still must be time for a kind word, a loving word, a gentle touch; there's still time to remind me that you care. You don't even need 20-seconds of insane courage to say something, to do something.
You just need 20 seconds.
