The Right Piece


"You know when you're doing a jigsaw puzzle and the piece looks like it should fit exactly, but it doesn't? So you try to squeeze it in, but you know it's not the right piece. But you're lazy, so you leave that piece there. You really gotta find the right piece - and she's the right piece."

~ Ellen DeGeneres ~ (on girlfriend Portia de Rossi)


I have found the right piece for my puzzle. And until I did, I truly couldn't know how damn good it would, and does, feel! And I have absolutely no regrets about giving up my wrong pieces along the way. It had, in my long, lonely days, crossed my mind if I shouldn't have just 'settled' for what I had, when I had it. There were days I did second-guess myself and wonder if having nothing, really was better than having a bad something.

I can't tell you how relieved I am that I didn't settle. Because I know, I absolutely know, that my right piece is the man I want to grow old with. Or should I say 'older' with. Because when we're together, it's as though we never will be 'old'.

It's the best feeling in the world, finally finding the right piece. And knowing that this is my future. He completes the puzzle that is me.

I can't really explain it, but I feel as if we should all be uncorking a bottle of champagne, or two, and toasting to your love!

Fusion said...

SO wonderfully said Fiona. Your happiness is my hope, and I know when I get down and wonder "if", not "when", I will think of you. Thank you again for your positive words to me, and everyone else too.

Fiona said...

Sophie - thank you! It does amaze me that such a wonderful man has come into my life :)

Sunny....you really do delight in it and I thank you for being so supportive! We enjoy 'puzzling', the coming together of our male and female interlocking elements ;)

Aaaah Jonas, we did just that on our last visit, in bed.

Fusion...always remember the when. Love is out there and thank you!!!

So, how much longer until this little two-piece jigsaw puzzle gets put together and framed? ;-)

Fiona said...

Hi Matt.

It gets put together regularly ;)

The framing part will take us a little while, as apart from other things, we have our unique issue of geography to sort out :)

Makes satisfying pat of fingertips on last, perfectly-fitting piece of jig-saw, folds arms, sits back to admire the picture and smiles :-D

You were the missing puzzle piece in his heart, Miss Fiona.

I love reading about this!!!!!!

Fiona said...

Thank you Sally :)

What a wonderful thing to say, it does feel like we've been holding each other's 'right piece' waiting to find one another!!

Love is indeed very messy and jagged sometimes, but quite honestly I think its also the main reason to bother living.

I'm glad you've found your right piece, whoever he is.
