One-Liner Wednesday

This is somewhat true for me. I’m still missing my mom 11 years on, and she was definitely someone I “had,” a huge part of my life, but otherwise… yeah. It’s pretty easy for me to dump material possessions as I downsize (again) for moving. But it was difficult for me to let the “soul mate” dream go. I’ve never had a soul mate, which may seem ironic for a romance writer, so when my 20-year marriage ended, I became more determined than ever to find this person. It took 5 years of increasingly frustrating and depressing situations for me to realize I had to let the dream go for my own mental and emotional health. I talk about this a lot because it helps me reinforce it to myself. I just today posted in comments to 2 blogs how much happier I am without the wings of this dream beating in my brain.

But it was a struggle to lug the thing to the trash bin and leave it there.

  1. I had no idea when I answered his ad that I would meet my soul mate. That was 30 years ago, so I was really lucky to see it in the first place.

  2. Sometimes the healthiest thing to do is to toss those impossible dreams into the trash.

  3. 😦 bad news, l still think however – that sometimes when you are LEAST looking, things happen — l think you are lovely [no not just trying to sound creepy] and l hope that love grabs you when you are not looking and throws you a curve ball.

    I was n’t looking, l truly wasn’t, l was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cynical it’s scary how blackened my heart had become! Plus l am more than a challenging handful for any sane woman! Now l have a lady who loves me and doesn’t wish to kill me .. well not everyday anyway 🙂

  4. Such a healthy choice. I think when we put all our energy into searching for someone we’re telling ourselves we’re incomplete, we aren’t enough as we are, and that chips away at our soul. 💛

  5. Sometimes letting go can free our mind and spirit. Good choice to be yourself.

  6. I think it is very brave of you to finally take this decision and then stick by it.

  7. Despite you dragging your soul mate dreams to the trash, I’ll wager it’s still drifting around all of that music you adore. Like that Suzi Quatro duet. Resistance is futile.
