Where I Was…
Not too long ago I thought, “Well, I’ve already been married in my life. I’m a mother, grandmother, a sister, with many interests, friends, a home of my own, and part-time work that I enjoy. I have a full life. It’s time to live my life on my own, enjoy my independence, and move forward. I won’t ever need or want a man in my life again. That part is over…. It’s too late for real love, anyway…Is there even such a thing as true love?”
Maybe I’m not finished
with love yet…
However, after about 2 years of enjoying my independent life, I started to feel a nudge…. ”maybe I’d like to have a man in my life who just wants to go to dinner or a movie now and then.” Over the next year, while I did more healing work on myself, the nudge expanded to a full-blown, powerful desire for a high-quality,
love-of-my-life relationship! I couldn’t ignore it.
It wouldn’t go away.
I started to think about what if…?
Where does a woman my age even begin? I knew nothing about dating after all these years. Even the term “dating” sounded so high-school to me!
As a capable, intelligent woman, experienced in professional success, I knew how to set goals and accomplish them. I even had extensive training as a coach. I wondered how I should approach this.
I wanted to learn more about it, so I started reading books, checking out love coaches, blogs, and videos until I figured out my own path. I have now reached a place in my life beyond anywhere I’d imagined, as a beautiful, confident 60-something woman, with high-quality, loving relationships.
