Lately I feel running around and stressed. I obviously haven’t had much time for writing, although I wish it were different. I think April will be an easier month where events are concerned at where I work, so maybe a little breather coming my way!
For the past few days, I’ve been celebrating my husband’s birthday, as well as the first day we met. His birthday is the 28th, and three years ago we met on the 27th in person. We met online at first, can you believe it? And now we’ve been married 10 months!
Before I met the love of my life, I’d always dated guys that I met on free online dating websites because I went to Wesleyan College, the first college to grant degrees to women in 1836, and still an all-women’s college. I had to meet men somehow. 😉
I set out that “this time” after breaking up with my non-committing bf of 4 years, that “this time,” I would find the man of my heart’s core, the one I would marry and settle down with! I wasn’t going to stop until I found him, and I wasn’t giving up. Each guy I went on a date with, I became more and more specific with what qualities I wanted. (For instance, someone once drew to my attention that not everyone loves animals, and he didn’t care for my cat and… well… what?! Who could not love animals? Nah, never saw him again. Updated my online dating profile: My guy must love animals.)
I kept putting out to the universe each detail I wanted in a man! I was used to doing this spiritual process of the Law of Attraction, actually. I’ve always been able to land the guys that I called for with the exact qualities I asked for… just also with qualities I didn’t ask for. So I tried to make this marriage-relationship I tried to find incredibly detailed and not missing anything. Let’s just say the Universe brought me exactly what I requested!!! He’s the perfect man for me and he’s my soul mate, which is exactly what I searched for! There may be a few details I did not think about to ask, but it’s perfectly fine because we’re meant to be and we’re so in love 😀 We got married last May 21st.
I always recommend online dating to people, but I also recommend being detailed and sending out in your mind, projecting to the Universe, to the Angels, to the spirit of the Goddess-God, praying about what you dream of.
My husband and I met in the middle of where we lived, in a lovely coffee shop in Atlanta. He sat outside and had a red rose for me. My heart was beating fast as I realized this guy was HANDSOME and ROMANTIC… I might not just let him go. 😉 After two hours of talking, I asked him what time he liked to eat dinner. Then we walked and found a fancy pizza and wine place and enjoyed ourselves there till our midnight walk on the bridge together. We were actually too nervous to make the first move to kiss that night, as we waited for the other to make the move, but when he walked me to my car, I did ask him when I could see him next. Which I hadn’t really done (or followed through with) any of my previous dates. I knew it was right.
I proceeded to meet him and his family at his church (the one we ended up getting married in). I consider him and his family to have more spiritual/new age views, like I do, yet they go to a Lutheran church. We go? Well, Brian and I haven’t actually been in a long time, not too often since the wedding, since the two pastors moved on. Our schedules have changed a LOT since then, though, with his promotion and my new job. So, we don’t exactly get Sundays off anymore. (Why do people want events on Sunday mornings anyway??) The church wasn’t as important as community and family time, although it can be fun, even though I prefer Unity Church myself if I get to choose a church.
Anyway, we like to reenact the first day that we met every year, nice romantic gesture. It’s stressful when our jobs pulls us in separate directions, but we always find our way together and our way back to each other 🙂
Now, I need to make goals to do more yoga because I’ve been feeling out of wack when I don’t have enough time but a few dismal stretches a day. I need to make time to write, and read, and meditate. Time is all, and time is nothing. All is well, and all will be. 🙂
