I love gangster movies. I think it’s the Gemini in me - I have a little bit of a gangsta alter ego!
Anyways one of my favorite Gangster movies is the Bronx Tale. There is part where Sonny is telling the kid about love:
You gotta do what your heart tells you to do. Let me tell you somethin' right now. You're only allowed three great women in your lifetime. They come along like the great fighters, every ten years. Rocky Marciano. Sugar Ray Robinson. Joe Louis. Sometimes you get 'em all at once. Me? I had my three when I was 16. That happens. What are you gonna do? That's the way it goes, you know? Tell you right now. See this girl? Maybe this girl, she put wind in your sails. Maybe she's your first great one.
Which leads me to the Three Great Loves Theory! I’ve heard others say it and I believe it. I think you get three great loves in your life.
For some people they find their first one and are lucky enough to make that one work for the rest of their life.
I am not so lucky…. My first love will always have a very special place in my heart. I met him when I was 18 and moved away my family for him. I grew up with him. I learned so much from our love. But we drifted apart and at the age of 24 we went our separate ways….
For some people the second one is the ONE… My parents for instance. Both married previously before marrying each other. They are true soul mates and are amazing for each other.
I am not so lucky…. My second love – Has been my hardest life lesson. I truly believed if I loved him enough I could save him from himself – I could love him enough that he would love himself…. WOW! What a mistake. But he gave my greatest gift in my life… my beautiful son.
And for others the third time is the charm…
I hope I can be so lucky….Don’t get me wrong I am REALLY happy where I am in my life right now. I am not looking for love… not now BUT I would be lying if I said I never wanted to find love again. I am a Gemini and the opposite of my gangsta side is the hopeless romantic.
So I ask you… How many great loves do you think you get in life?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zVuORX4pno
