I Am The Captain And I am Heading Back Out To Sea

The Potential Mr. Babz has left the building...Again.  I am relieved.  I am happy.  Of course sad too and broken-hearted.  I mean there was great deal of time invested.  But at last, we just couldn't make it work.  No matter what I did it was never enough.  It just felt like a long audition for a marriage that was never going to happen.  I just got tired of auditioning.

So I spent a few days giving up on love... truer love.  I starting priming myself for a life of solitude and celibacy. Down with love!

And then I realized, that's not what I want to do! I am all for love and I can remain open to it! Just because this loveship sank, doesn't mean I can't get back into the open seas. I own myself. I can feel whatever I want and change my mind to change my life.

I am a woman made for love. Built for love. Loves being in love. I don't have to hold to anyone's expectations or criticisms or nay-saying. I know exactly how I want to live and love. And just because that ship has sailed, only means there is more room in the port for a new ship to sail in.

I am not going to walk around sad and mad. It didn't work out for a great many reasons. It's over.

I am acutely aware of my mortality. I am not going to get another 50 years to work this life out.  I gotta make the best of everything right now.  I gotta live boldly and grandly right now. So whatever the lessons from this last sinking loveship I gladly take with me as I move back into open waters. I am excited about my life and I am excited about the woman I am becoming and I am exciting about who I am right now.

I am the captain of this ship and I am not looking for someone to man the helm, I am open to inviting someone who wants to sail with me... some days as the captain and some days as the first mate. I am heading back out to sea stronger with an adventurous spirit and a happy heart.

I've come a long way and learned so much.  This is a testament to all the books and webinars and motivational sayings I've gathered and filled my spirit with.  I am in charge of my being. I can feel and move through anything. Nothing breaks me anymore.  God has my back.

I'm happy that you bounce back so well. You said that you're a woman made for love. I admire your firmness about who you are.
