Yesterday was my 5 year anniversary.
The other day I put up some slightly sappy sentiments on Facebook about it, which you are more than welcome to read.
But while I’m being sentimental… I have one more thing to say…
Ron is 29 years older than me.
When we met that seemed scandalous to both of us.
Our second date the sweet old lady selling us museum tickets looked up from the counter and asked “is that one student and one senior?”
(Bless her heart.)
I’m not going to lie… there were things about that fact that were complicated. Kids, friends, perceptions.
But a scandal is almost always about what other people think. It’s never about what is true for you.
This life we are in… it is so full of conditioning that we often don’t even see it.
Have kids, settle down, find your passion, make something of yourself, don’t rock the boat, be yourself (the reasoned social media acceptable version of course!)
We start doing those things without even questioning if they are actually part of our path. If they have anything to do with what will make us uniquely filled up.
What do you know?
What works for you?
What would you like to create?
And who would you like to have along for the ride in what ways?
I like Ron. He’s kind of awesome. And uniquely kind. I got my life would be a greater adventure with him in it.
What if it could be that simple?
People will talk. People always talk.
While they talk, why not take a brave step forward with creating that life that is ravishingly yours and wonder full?
Every time I make a choice where that is the criteria… I’m glad I did.
Then just be kind and smart and present… Cause you’ll sort out the rest as you go.
