Dear Twenty20,

Updated: Apr 15, 2021

You've been on my mind lately, i've been thinking about how we just met. I heard so much about you before we came to be and I can't wait to tell you everything. Like the brightness that blossoms in the spring, you hit me like a gust of fresh air. The moment I saw you I felt like I could breathe again, you offered me another chance at everything that I lost to your predecessors and swooped in just in the nick of time. It was as if you knew that I was drowning and have been for so long, just as I began to see the light on the other side you jerked me back to life. Talk about a new lease, I feel brand new. I still move with caution, in fear of the tsunami that got me last time. I fear he is angry and plotting his revenge. However, with my chest a little further out, back a little straighter and my eyes wider, I make stride after stride. For you make me feel unusually secure, i'm not sure how you do it but I am not complaining. You are like a best friend I've always had but never knew how much I needed. Now that you're here I truly don't know what I would have done without you.

I felt like I knew you so well, I was taken by you with a childlike swiftness, but tonight I was shook back to reality. I just met you and I don't know you that well. I know what I hope you are and I know what you feel like to me but I don't know you that well. The person I do know though is me, so before you proceed with your agenda, whatever it may be, I just have a few things to say.

I've seen 22 different versions of you.

I know how these things go, but this time things will be a little different, you see, you came into my life and you've only got a few months. I don't know what will become of you when someone else takes over but I do know what will become of me. I will become better with you, I will grow with you, I will laugh with you, I will succeed with you. I will celebrate with you over and over again. I will develop into the woman I am meant to be with you. I will reach my goals, exceed them and make new ones. I do expect you to be a journey, one with which pitstops, crossroads, ups and downs and roundabouts. But like any road trip there are songs to be sang and stories to be told, there are memories to be shared experiences to be made and a destination to look forward to.

You will be so kind me, you will smother me with love and relationships and make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. You will swaddle me like a new born and cradle me like and egg. Just as peacefully as you came, you will leave. Without a single scratch, polished and shined, you will leave me further into future, deeper into my destiny. You will leave me rich, plump and well -rounded in every aspect of my life. All my fears will become like warm ocean water under my feet as I clench my toes in the sand and stare into the beach that will be my peace. I hope you're following Twenty20, i'm only going to say this once.

I plan for you to be my best-friend because I know that you have it in you. I feel like we just connect, don't you?

So behave.

Thank you Kindly.
