Postscript

I felt the need to write a short addendum to my earlier post ‘The baby conundrum‘. As I took a ride on my scooter and reflected on what I wrote, I realised I’d used the phrase ‘the right guy’ far too often. In fact, using it once is probably once too often.

I remembered, as I scootered along, that I don’t believe in the concept of ‘the right guy’ so much anymore. I used to but these days, I believe in the right timing, the right headspace, the right circumstances and the willingness – on the part of both parties – to take a leap of faith, make a commitment and make a choice. I still like to think there’s some serendipity and divine intervention involved but, ultimately, I think it’s a choice, prompted by a particular time and place in the lives and journeys of two people. Just thought that was worth clarifying, to myself more than to anyone else, although I reserve the right to change my mind!
