NEXT time

“To be happy, drop the words if only and substitute instead the words next time.”

— S. Banton ( 1882-1966 ) American physician

**************************************

NEXT TIME: I’ll make ample “heart”space for the man in my life.  Whatever way, shape or form he chooses to come in.  He won’t have to compete for my FULL attention.

NEXT TIME: I won’t struggle so much with my intuition and my gut instincts RE: reaching out and digging deeper within — when it comes to allowing him in.

NEXT TIME: I’ll know.  I won’t spend SO much time agonizing over PERFECT timing.  I also REFUSE to settle for less than AMAZING chemistry.

NEXT TIME: I’ll be ready.  I won’t be so wishy-washy.  I’ll dive with both feet in.  I’ll remember to shut the door behind me.  We won’t have any closets to clear out, or ghosts to chase away.

NEXT TIME: I want to breathe easier.  I’ll laugh often.  I promise to be much naughtier than nice, and free myself from institutional inhibitions.

NEXT TIME: I won’t depend on him to be my BEST FRIEND, but I will expect us to be there for one another when we need each other.

NEXT TIME: I will NOT pursue.  I will say NO.  I won’t measure him up to UNREALISTIC ideals.

NEXT TIME: I’ll love him for him, and I won’t fight so hard when it comes to allowing him to love me for me.  Changing one another is NOT an option.  Being and becoming the better partner for the other is.

NEXT TIME: will be much SOONER than later.

    “I will NOT pursue. I will say NO.”

    These are my goals for “Next Time” too.. I made the mistake of making my ex pretty much the center of my world without even really realizing I was doing it. I’ll definitely be more aware next time.

  2. @BOBALINA77: How has it turned out? It’ll be a year for you soon, and I’m wondering if your “resolution(s)” have reaped any rewards?

    @RACHEL: Why thank you! I recently went through this with someone who considers me his soul’s mate, and he said “CHECK” to each and every one. Who knows, huh?
