I can’t stress enough to women around me how important it is that we pursue our passion in life. I have just given “coaching” to one of my friends to speculate on what she would use her life for if she was never to meet the right guy. Yes, she was first afraid not to manifest being alone and send wrong messages to God, but soon she realized my point and took it on.
Namely, when almost 2 years ago, I had a realization that I may end up single forever, I took a moment to think of my life and what I would do. I could see my life being of service and a complete contribution to people on the planet. I could see myself being a modern Gandhi and really taking steps to support humanity. It made me peaceful that it was a life worth living.
I think today, women very often forget their goals when they meet a guy. It is in our nature to be flexible and adjust to the environment. So when the right guy comes alone, it’s even more likely that we will be all over the place if we are not already clear on what we want to do and have our life be for.
I know love has a strong pull – I am happily married, but what I think empowers me the most is the thought that we never know what tomorrow will bring…and making sure we are ok on our own 2 feet is the most empowering way to approach a relationship. Frankly, that makes us more fun for our partners.
More to come…. Enjoy the week and take some time thinking about what lights you up!
