I know I have been a bit short on words as of late but I have been adjusting to my new busy schedule with physical therapy, my teenagers schedule and figuring out how to fit in everything that I need to get done which has left me a little frazzled. At those times, I find it hard to talk about much when I am just trying to keep my head above water and not wear myself out. Now that it has been a few weeks, I am settling in and things are starting to get back to normal. Yet, as things are getting better in so many areas of my life my love life continues to have issues, which means I once again am wondering why I even bother sometimes. I love my single life but having someone to share things with would be nice, and finding someone who isn’t so practical that when things get difficult they “practically” move you out of the way would be nice. I honestly believed that I had found someone who has on the same wavelength but I am so tired of PRACTICAL! At some point in your life you have to take chances and not worry about what happens on the other side. Isn’t that what living is really all about? Taking risks; learning to leap; stretching your wings? When you are heading over that hump towards the last half of your life it is time to prioritize. For me, as I look to my son heading off to college my priority is myself and being happy and not waiting on someone to realize I am more than they ever thought possible. While he works all the time and doesn’t find a way to fit me in, I draw further away and I have started looking towards what’s next for me in this life. I will never stop chasing my dreams but it is time to stop chasing a person. After all, dreams are made up of possibilities, he is just one. He is my friend and I enjoy our time together, when he manages to find it, but I am done with Mr. Practical and I am now looking for Mr. Spontaneous! And one of these days he is going to realize I have set my sights on other shores and I have a feeling he is going to miss me when I’m gone!
Have a wonderfully wicked rest of your day and remember to always stay true to your style and make today’s fashion trends work for you!
