This Is When You’re Gonna Fall In Love

You’re gonna fall in love when you finally realize your grass is actually greener. You’re gonna look at the other side and be okay with it appearing more polished, brighter, and fuller. You’re gonna take a look at yours and believe it’s the greenest grass in the world.

You’re gonna fall in love when you can eat a bowl of cereal completely naked and walk around your apartment with a milk moustache stained on your upper lip. You might pour a second bowl, you might not, but you’re completely okay with bumming out with Captain Crunch and The Office on a Friday night.

You’re gonna fall in love when you care less about what you look like before the bar. You’re still going to get ready for a good amount of time and put thought into your outfit, but you’re not gonna wear your most expensive pair of jeans or run out to buy something an hour before.

You’re gonna fall in love when you can laugh at your own jokes. You are gonna be okay with having a little stumble in public or when a friend pokes fun at the weird outfit you wore last week. They are going to bust your balls and try and make you feel embarrassed, but you’re going to be okay with it this time and laugh along with them.

You’re gonna fall in love when you stop replaying conversations in your head. You’re gonna stop stressing about saying the right thing to that crush you have at work or in class. You’re going to say what feels natural and what feels like you.

You’re gonna fall in love when you achieved some success. Whether it’s buying a new place or getting a promotion, people will naturally gravitate toward the sparkle you reflect.

You’re gonna fall in love when you’ve overcome a tragedy. You went through some sort of hellish nightmare that made you feel completely hopeless for days, weeks, or even months at a time. But you surpassed through the pain and suffering, and you are now stronger than you’ve ever been before.

You’re gonna fall in love when you are insanely busy. You barely have time to finish your lunch at work or iron your shirt before you head out the door. Your thoughts seem to be cluttered and never-ending, but you’re actually seeing yourself grow up right before your eyes.

You’re gonna fall in love when you look in the mirror and smile at what you see. You’re going to breathe in the crisp air and fall into a complete state of ecstasy. You’re going to get up from bed each morning and get a rush of excitement thinking of what the new day may bring you.

You’re gonna fall in love when you take the time to realize that you genuinely love yourself. TC Mark
