I used that phrase today. Interestingly enough at church the conversation turned towards marriage which when done properly is strictly un-me-centric. Ben and Geoff were talking about it. It's not as if I didn't know any of it before, giving 100%, it's not 50/50, loving your wife, etc.
In Simple Kind of Life there's a line that goes the longer that I wait the more selfish that I get … now all those simple things are simply too complicated for my life, how'd I get so faithful to my freedom? a selfish kind of life. Yes, I just quoted No Doubt. And yes, for those of you counting that's actually five lines. Anyway, I've wanted to be married for a long time. And for a long time that's all I wanted. I used to want to give 100% for a girl. But I don't find myself willing to do that anymore. I find that I'm getting more and more comfortable just being single, dealing with my own plans and not having to worry or care what a girl thinks. I bought my iPod and laptop just because I wanted to. Without a second thought, I can do as I please, and that's just all there is to it. I'm not so sure this is a good thing. Maybe it's just a phase. Maybe it isn't. I don't know how far down this road I'll progress or if I'll swing about and find some girl that I really want to give my all for. I guess I'll find out when I meet her.
