Are You Nina Mosley?
A casual outing can turn into a life changing experience regardless of the circumstances.
Reading the Good Book we learn that there is time for everything.
Ecclesiastes 3New International Version (NIV)
A Time for Everything
3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
People often tell you to be careful what you ask for because you just might get it. But that is kind of the point. Life is not as cut and dry as people would like it to be and we indeed need shifts to happen in our lives to give us redirection and focus.
Even when we feel like our lives are out of our control, keeping with the idea to pray until something happens we see the weight of our lives drop from our shoulders. A lot of times we go through so much that we forget how to take care of ourselves. So I have to ask are you Nina Mosley?
In the fictional character Nina Mosley from the urban classic, Love Jones, she is a woman that has sustained a break-up from her fiancé and getting back into the groove of things. She meets a handsome stranger, Darius Lovehall, and just when she is thinking they will just be friends, things take a turn over the course of their interactions.
Ladies whether we admit it or not, we want breakfast in bed, we want to be wined and dined, and ultimately we want to be loved and adored. But are we ready for these kind gestures when the situation is placed in your lap?
With so many relationship experts, life coaches, and counselors in this world, I find it humanly impossible to rely on “man” to tell me as woman what I may or may not be ready for. For instance, Nina meets Darius and they have fun, simple and plain until they realize that the comfort level of their relationship is unmatched in the arms of someone else.
Is it okay to be Nina Mosley and have fun with someone on your own accord and not care about the opinion of others? Is it okay to spend uncounted hours with someone after a serious break-up? People have no idea the pain you deal with behind closed doors but be so ready to judge you openly based on their perception of you and your situation.
Holding your pain inside will keep you sheltered but when you let things go you realize that everything you have gone through is beautiful. You have to commit to making your life better in order to feel better. Could you imagine if social media was as popular in relationships then as we watch the love unfold between Nina and Darius, as it is now with all of these relationships and “situationships”? Nina and Darius would not have stood a chance.
Ideally, some of the conversations that spark during the movie, the tension, the intimacy, and the feelings that emerge is what make everything a love jones. Everyone wants to be loved. Everyone wants compassion. Everyone wants a companion. However, there is no time limit for these things to happen. Going back to my original scripture, as you continue to read, the Good Book says that God will make things beautiful in his timing.
In your flesh you can’t help who you like. You can’t help who you adore. You can’t stop falling in love with someone who gives you a feeling that you have never felt before. It is all his timing. Even when you don’t ask for something, He has the powerful gift of giving you just what you need.
Are you Nina Mosley? Do you recognize the time? Where are you in your relationship status? Do you care what others think? If you are free and open, and have no regard for the opinion of others and are simply living your life and enjoying the life you have been presented through the difficult times; then yes you are.
