starting over

1st may, a good date, has a historical ring to it ... may day 2009.

today is the first day of the rest of my life. new beginnings!

life is for living and live it i have. i am of an age where i feel no need to procrastinate or waste time, the clock is ticking.

i firmly believed hahn@home's idea of a six month dating hiatus following the breakdown of a relationship was a excellent idea.

in reality, at my age ...
six months is a long time ... just sayin'!

so, today i came to a decision. i stood outside (in the intermittent rain) looked up at the sky, took a deep breath and decided i was grateful to be me. no more guilt, no more sorrow ... life goes on and life is good. an adventure waiting to happen, a feast, piled high for the hungry, to spend another minute looking back would be wasteful.

i will never again 'hunt' love! i will enjoy my world exactly as it is. i will open myself to life and new experiences. if love should land on me, gentle as a butterfly ... i will be very still and give thanks.

Every day is the first day of the rest of our lives....giving us new opportunities to choose how we live.

and a dating hiatus? that depends on you and you alone. never know who you'll meet or when.

but your plan is a sound one...enjoy your world, your life. love will find you.
