In it. Out of it. Looking for it. Lost it. Whatever part of love you have right now, you have to admit it is probably one of the most powerful emotions we as humans can feel.
Right now, I am in it. Big time! One of the side effects of love is yearning. Another may be anticipation. Like seeing him again, and feeling, well, safe and whole. Not that one isn't whole by oneself, but if you have been in love, you know what I am talking about. It feels good!
And what about those little "coincidences" that happen when you are thinking about your love? Is there such thing as coincidence? Right now as I write this, his "morning song" came on. Have you ever experienced that? Thinking about your loved one and a song comes on that is special to the two of you? Or maybe a scent. Or an image comes to your consciousness, and the phone rings and there they are. Or a simple text.
No matter what part of love you may be experiencing, you have to admit it- love is a beautiful thing!

It's the middle of January. Tonight it is going to be only 4 degrees, but with a wind chill of -20. And I am feeling good!
I have taken my own advice, the kind of advice I've given to friends before. This time it's for me. I am living honestly and openly, and for the first time in a long time, I am going to be living for myself. Of course I am still responsible for my daughter! But now, I am going to put more energy towards my adult life.
I want my two worlds to meet.
For awhile, I have worried about being public with my personal relationships. Not anymore. It feels good to talk to friends, clients about the man I am dating. I want the people to know the person I am choosing to be with. I really feel that way! And I want people to experience what I am experiencing- joy, happiness, and the ability to be free to love openly the person you want to love.
No more hiding. No more skirting "the question". Yes, I am in a relationship! Yes, I am very happy with who I am with!
And I wish that for everyone.

Making the Most

Today as I was driving to work, lost somewhere in my own thoughts (of course!), I happened to look up at a lady in a Statue of Liberty outfit handing out pamphlets for something on sale or for a business- Bedding Experts? Tax place? I was imagining myself in that costume, and how embarrassed I would be. Then I looked at the woman's face- she must have been about 60- and to my surprise, she wasn't looking depressed and long in face- she was smiling! And, maybe- really?- laughing! That took me out of my thoughts, and I started smiling, too! How cool is it that she was making the most of her situation! She was having fun! And as I was driving away, I was thinking that what I saw has to be a lesson. Make the most of what is given to you, and smile! You never know who's life you may be affecting!
