The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: June 10, 2011
Quote of the Day:
“Really important meetings are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.” ~Paulo Coelho
The Single Woman Says:
Ever find yourself in the same situation, standing at the same crossroads, or dating essentially the same person over and over again? Life does that, you know…sends the same lessons to us, time and again, until we are willing to do the work it takes to learn what we need to learn and move on. That’s why I always ask myself when I find myself in a place I’ve been before: “What do I need to learn that I missed the first time around?” Life and God will keep sending that ex, or that lesson, or that challenge, back across your path until you learn the lesson you are meant to learn.
Realize that it IS possible to walk away from an encounter with an ex feeling cheerful instead of tearful. Coming face-to-face with your Past can actually be enlightening, healing, and even downright empowering. Life is handing you an opportunity to come full circle, to shine your light on the dark days of your break-up and to exorcise the ghosts of your past right outta your life once and for all. When life designs a chance encounter between you and your ex, that’s a powerful thing; it’s a synchronistic thing; and it’s an opportunity for growth that should be seized. There is no better way to turn your Life around than by facing the Past without backing down.
And just think: If you run, you’ll miss out on the fun of realizing he was never The One… J
