Ready for Love

While throwing back birthday drinks, I vowed that at 32 I would stir up my romantic life. I hadn't had a date since Generous Stranger, and that date was more like an instantaneous meeting of two attractive and hungry souls than an outing.  Now more than ever I want to be wined and dined before dawn. I want to be picked up and dropped off at a respectable hour, called two days later, and do it all over again. It is time, ladies, for this lady to meet herself a man that is going to commit and love her reciprocally and unconditionally.

Now, how I am going to accomplish that? First, I’m going to work on being more emotionally available. I am a firm believer that the Universe gives us what we desire when we've opened our hearts and are ready to receive all the joy and love that we truly deserve. Then I will change my courting habits, which mostly consist of letting men come to me, and take a more proactive approach to meeting my future mate. Instead of piling all the work onto the Universe, I'm going to heave ho and actively go out so I can meet men. I’m even going to try online dating for a third time!

Blame it on the birthday drinks, turning 32 or my newly healed open heart, but I am just ready to mingle. I’m open to let loose and try, try again, because I am ready for love. And I’m willing to do a whole lot of shaking and baking to get just what I want.
