With Valentine’s Day 15 days away, I have decided to have a Love & Relationship series for the next two weeks. At the beginning of February last year I opened up my blog focus to include relationships, starting the topic expansion off with a similar series.
It will be interesting for me to write on the topic next month, comparing it to my thoughts a year ago. I was in a relationship with someone who was not a good match for me on many levels. I was several months out of a destructive relationship and was still healing from that experience. I had been separated for over two years and was awaiting my court date to finalize the divorce. I was in a very different place emotionally than I am right now.
My Thoughts a Year Ago
- I had a list of qualities I was looking for in a man. It was a good exercise, which continued to be edited in the last year.
- I opined on the thought of remarriage.
- I wrote about successful relationships I see around me.
- I wrote I wasn’t sure love was forever on Valentine’s Day, which led to a 24 hour breakup with the guy who ultimately wasn’t a good match anyway. We really shouldn’t have put it back together, but it ended again, permanently, one week later.
This year I will write about my thoughts on Love & Relationships with another year of dating experience post-separation (and now divorce). I am not an expert, just someone who is an observer of my own feelings and the world around me. Come visit to agree or vehemently disagree; both will be welcome. Share your insight, offer up words of encouragement, and join the dialog.
Wednesday the 1st starts the 14 day series. I hope you will be here to read and share your thoughts. There will be Love & Relationship book reviews, my thoughts on relationships a year later, a guest writer, a relationship blog review, and more.
And, what I know this time around, is that I am with a man who won’t whine about my thoughts on my blog, but embrace this is who I am and where I am in my life at this moment. His feelings will remain the same regardless of what I write.
For that reason, I am off to a good start in this relationship series and in my life.
