Random Thoughts On A Sunday
« on: May 31, 2015, 01:55:22 PM »
Get to know yourself.
There can be such a sense of urgency initially, best for me to experience the thick of my grief outside of a relationship. Don?t want those distractions and that confusion.
Unknown to say the least, married for 28 years.
Experiment, learn ? what a whole new world.
Introduction to dating, wow this is fun.
Not long after the 1-year anniversary of her passing, a 7 month long relationship.
Maybe she?s the one. Still a certain sense of urgency.
Things didn?t work out. So much learned. So much more ?grounded.? It was a good experience for both of us.
Less sense of urgency. Finding a compatible person, not necessarily an easy task.
Such a variety of beliefs, experiences and so much more.
I feel so good about myself. Dating is relatively easy.
So much easier at this age vs. prior to marriage.
Appreciative for so very much!
Take a break. How much time do I want to spend doing this?
Glad to see urgency disappear.
With a very wonderful woman now. Love the time we spend together.
Grateful for much. Grateful for the experiences leading up to this.
Glad that urgency isn?t a part of the equation.
Life is good!

Grateful for the past. Embracing the present. Trusting in the future.

Glad to hear it, Mac.  You and I are somewhere along the same time line.  My husband would be utterly shocked to know his type-A, over-achieving wife could ever have become so laissez-faire about so many things.  I say yes to my daughter more.  I do things I want to do.  And don't do things I don't want to do.  Above all, I'm trying to take the be here now philosophy.  I think Scott would want that and by god we've earned it.  We're a little eccentric by some standards but gosh it can be liberating!

Great thoughts. Thank you for sharing. Yes, the sense of urgency does go away. It's nice to enjoy relationships with people again....
