I have sorta had a falling away with HIMYM Season 7. I thought it has lost it’s charm for me. It used to always give me goosebumps and light bulbs of realizations but hasn’t done so for the longest time. I also miss the wide-eyed, idealistic, hopeless romantic Ted.
But I am still watching it because I still want to be one with the rest of the HIMYM aficionado world as they witness the story develop for Ted as he finally reveals the mother. And so after getting the Season 8 episodes from my office mate, I have once again found myself hooked with HIMYM and that’s thanks to Episode 1. It was awesome. Not only did it reveal more about the would be mother, but also because of the nuggets of wisdom it has once again given me.
“Beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand is the thing that is almost the thing you want.. but it’s not quite.
Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz is the closest translation would be…”Lifelong Treasure of Destiny”.
Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz is not something that develops over time. It is something that happens instantaneously. It courses through you like the water of a river after a storm…filling you and emptying you all at once. You feel it throughout your body…in your hands…in your heart…in your stomach…in your skin…Have you ever felt this way about someone? If you have to think about it, you have not felt it. Everyone does eventually. You just never know when or where.”
HIMYM guys… you did it again for me!
