This is such an interesting time for me personally. I haven’t shared much about this before because it’s pretty personal.
In case you didn’t know, I now have a significant man in my life. I haven’t had a man in my life in over 10 years. Wow!
Something shifted for me this last year. I felt guided that it was time for me to be more social, to enjoy more out of life rather than simply working all the time. So I embarked on a whirlwind of dating and met many wonderful men. I finally settled on a man that makes me feel loved and very happy. His name is Dan. He’s my neighbor Mike’s brother and works as a handy man.
Dan started courting me the old fashioned way last April. We began dating seriously in June, and decided he should move in with me the end of October.
Today, on Christmas Eve, we are preparing for our first Christmas together. He’s still moving in so my home is a bit disorganized and cluttered as we combine our lives, hearts and many years of collected ‘stuff’, habits and lifestyles. We’re running errands, cooking, playing, and deciding what to do about family matters (his and mine), etc.
What’s so very cool is that for the first time in a very very long time, I now have a partner. He’s there for me and delights in giving me whatever I want, need or ask for. And I have someone to play with, to do things with, to lean on when I need comforting.
We believe we are Soulmates. The definition of a Soulmate is someone who is Divinely gifted to us so that we can heal, grow and evolve. They can be any species, human or other. They may be here for a short time, a season, or a lifetime.
Dan is helping heal my heart. I’ve been so wounded in my past relationships, it’s truly an act of faith and courage to share myself with a man (if you read my piece in the Spirited Woman’s Magazine, you’ll get a glimpse into that part of my life).
With Dan, I choose to be courageous, to speak up and express myself, no more hiding…. to let him see into my heart… to see my tears, my pain, my fears… and also share in my joy, my happiness and my love too.
Each time we express our Truth and reveal ourselves to each other, we create a new level of intimacy (“into me see”), and our relationship goes deeper. And we both become better people.
So today, I’m most grateful for Soulmates. YOU are also my Soulmate because YOU also help me heal, grow and evolve.
Einstein loves Dan too. They are very good for each other. Dan delights in showing Einstein off to friends, and is learning how to train him too. It’s a joy for me to see.
Thanks for reading…
Who are your Soulmates?
Both now in the present and in the past. Whatever their lessons and gifts to you, take time this Season to feel appreciation and gratitude for them being in your life.
Much love, joy and happiness,“Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.” – Mary Anne Radmacher
