Leaving Rome

13 Jun

An expression that’s understood by everyone at an early age, but it effects all of us at one point in life.  Is the cliche “when in Rome”, sounds so simple doesn’t it.  Yet that simple saying can prohibit you from:  love, your personal freedom, or even stop your potential future from taking place.  The need to feel connected or to be apart of something, is a constant thats given to human society.  In fact standing apart from the crowd can sometimes be harder than standing in the mix of it.  I’ve seen a lot of relationships in which there were more than just the couple involved in it.  Seems the real question should be, who do I give me to or who do I let win?  So how powerful is the need for connectivity?  My cell phone is basically dead without a signal, but it has an important feature called roaming.  It’s funny the two words sound the exact same way, Rome and roam.  Roaming is when your cell phone is receiving a signal from another companies tower.  In life sometimes we have to make the transition or the decision to either give all of our attention to friends, or to take a chance on love.  Don’t get me wrong sometimes they won’t intefere with one another.  Other times one signal causes inteference and it blocks out the other.  At the end of the day, Rome is usually when you’re standing in the same spot, and not moving forward.  Roaming is when you’re traveling outside of your normal coverage area, and sometimes you run into an even stronger signal. What kind of connection is powering you?

    Love it! And to add on every network isn’t valuable. You pay for what you get.
