Reminder to myself

March 23, 2010

I’ve been feeling the need to date the past few days. It’s like something inside of me is pushing to get out.

But I promised myself a hiatus, and I know I need that mental break. I think though, that there’s a part of me that feels like I’m wasting time by not looking. I spent a huge part of my twenties wasting time, and now that I’m in my thirties, well, time ain’t slowin’ down! I’m feeling pressure (from myself, mostly) to settle down and get on with my life.

I have to remember that there is no time limit for my happiness. If it takes time, it takes time. Yes, it’s incredibly hard being alone when almost everyone around you is happily settled, but I don’t want to make a hasty decision which ends up being the wrong choice. If I’m not in a good place mentally, I won’t be ready to make that choice, even if it’s glaringly obvious what I should do.

I wish things were different, that I”d been different when I was younger, but I can’t change the past. I can only move forward, and make the choice now to be the person I wish I’d been.

The man of my dreams is out there and he’s not going to disappear because I’m taking a break. He’ll be there, waiting, when I return to the world of dating, fresh and ready for everything good that’s coming my way!

How’s that for positivity on a Tuesday afternoon?
