The human heart was—and remains—a mystery to me. But I’m learning. I have to. —Anthony Bourdain

And now, a moment with your 6th grade self

Sometimes you just want to go like this

Do you remember growing up, and having your first crush? I do. It was awkward, and strange, and ultimately, when you see them as adults, you go “What the heck was I thinking?” But in the days, weeks, months, that you were 12, walking around school, you sneak glances at him, hoping that he noticed that you were wearing a new bracelet, or actually brushed your hair today.

Now remember who you are today. When was the last time you felt butterflies when you saw someone, or at all? When did the littlest things like a sudden glance, or a nod, make your day? I think the photo above is the adult version of butterflies. That “daaaaaaaamn” moment that comes suddenly, one you don’t even plan, it just passes through.

We should all count ourselves lucky if we’re in relationships where we go “daaaaaang” sometimes. It’s a crazy notion, and sometimes shallow, but the “daaaaang” moment doesn’t necessarily translate to looks. It could just be how they wrote that email, or commented on your Instagram photo, that you posted and hoped to heck they would notice. Your significant other making your morning tea.

Hot is good, and whatever your definition, I hope you get to look at someone today, and go “daaaaaaamn”.
