From My Heart, Mind and Soul....

Relationships

Does anyone marry for love any more?

Talking to a friend of mine I became discouraged. I know the older we get it's harder to find love and relationships, but, I never believed that love was off the table completely. He believes that no one marries for love any more. He said people are looking for financial security, freedom and no drama.
While I can agree that a no stress relationship sounds wonderful and the idea of stability is absolutely ideal, I still am holding out for LOVE! Call me silly. Call me crazy. Call me insane. But, I still believe that love is out there and can be mine.

An Aha Moment...

Have you ever had an Aha moment? A moment where it seems like the cartoonists had gotten it right by drawing a light bulb  over a character's head as they had just been enlightened. I know that I have had several of those moments throughout my lifetime. However, there was one that just stood out to me recently.

I had to make a late night run to the store to get some items for the next day. As I went inside the store and began the search for the items, my mind kept racing back to a gentleman that I had begun to get to know.

That One Person....

He told me that after looking at a picture of mine on Facebook that he had to scroll past it quickly. On the picture was someone that he used to date. I teased him about missing her and he stated that he was past her, but he did like her hair the way it was. I laughed and stated, "I guess you really didn't scrollquicklypast the pictures." He told me to shut up, but then he confessed, "We all have that one person".

After getting off the phone with him, I pondered his statement.

What Can I Tell Her?

My daughter is only 4, but she is already being affected by boys. Well, let's say it bothers her when they're mean to her at school.  

But, I wondered, "What can I tell her?" I mean, I'm definitely not an expert. I grew up with 3 brothers, but that didn't give me inside knowledge. And I definitely didn't gain inside knowledge by going through a divorce.

So, what can a single mother tell her 4 year old daughter about the other sex who she may never understand? My reply, "Boys are silly!" Her reply, "Yeah!"

That awkward moment

Don't you hate those awkward moments when you first meet someone and you're not sure of where it's going? I like them. Do they like me? Did I make an impression? Am I really putting myself out there again? And then they call or text and you breathe a sigh of relief. But then you wonder how many moments you will have like this before you find a certain level of comfort. Comfort.... I'm waiting on you!

No Regrets?

In just one moment he made me have regrets. I always said that I would not live a life of regrets. Whatever would happen, whatever came my way, I would not live a life of regret. But, just like that, in one conversation, he made me look back at the mistakes I made and how in one moment I could have changed my future, which is now my present. Wow! 

Have you ever looked back at some of your mistakes and wondered "what if?" I've done that. And, somehow, that seems different than looking back and having regrets.

Think about it...

Relationships are wonderful! Sometimes they are a roller coaster ride filled with ups and downs. Sometimes they are on cruise control. But, when you come to a crossroads and have to decide which way to go, or if you come to a stop sign and know that it's best to obey the sign in front of you, they can sometimes become.....scary.
 
Hmmm, how can a relationship that you once vowed that you would love each other forever come to a point where you are scared to even be in the same room as that individual?
