Afternoon Edition - 11/3/07


Lead the Way
At this point in my life, I’m pleasantly surprised to say that I’m in love. Yeah, yeah…so you’ve noticed that from the sappy postings and the ongoing love story of BD and I that appear at least once a week on my blog. The truth is, I didn’t think this love – or any other love for that matter – would happen at this stage in my life. Moreover, I was content to feel that I have an incredible circle of friends and was enjoying myself just fine without the romantic entanglements. I am, however, taking one day at a time and savoring a new love. A love that is different from all that I’ve experienced. One of the changes that made this love possible was to actually do as Mariah’s song says and let love lead the way. For a control freak like me, that assignment is easier said than done, but I’m taking the project seriously. As I’ve said in the past, I don’t’ know where BD and I are going or if this is a forever love, but right now it’s amazing and I’ve learned to live my “right now.” Sidney Sheldon has a book entitled, “If tomorrow never comes.” The title – more than the storyline – has stayed with me over the years. Mainly because that’s how I’ve chosen to live my life; as if ‘tomorrow never comes’ I can say I really enjoyed today. It’s not as hard to do or believe….let love lead the way.

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Learning to appreciate the moment is something more people need to to do, IMHO. You're lucky for having learned that lesson already.

I'm not actively looking for love, I'm ready for it again. It'll find me again, one day.

L.O.V.E. is beautiful when you're in it. I used to be a cynic, and I still think some people "play at love," but when its real, it's definitely The Shit.

I agree. Enjoy your life and your love. Accomplish everything that you wanted to do in that very day. As you said tomorrow is never promised. Lata.
