I hate the question: “What are you looking for?”
I also hate any derivative of: “Hang in there, you will find him.”
Because surprise surprise, I am not looking for a man. I’m not looking for ANY one.
Looking is an active word; ‘looking’ implies I’ve lost something, or something is missing from my life, and that’s just not the case.
I am single, but my life is not lacking or incomplete.
I’m open and receptive to meeting him, but I’m not looking. I’m living my life — pursuing personal growth and professional milestones.
Bottom line: the man who ends up in my life is going to be there not because he fills a void, but because he enriches and adds value to my already-rich, complete life.
In 2010, I took ballroom dancing lessons.
In 2011, I went on a solo trip to Greece.
In 2013, I bought a house.
In 2016, I joined a chorale and got a puppy.
In 2017, I took a 4-week trip to Europe and started my blog.
In 2019, I sang and danced in front of audiences of a thousand.
In 2020, I keynoted a conference.
In 2021, I’m writing a book. (Subscribe to my email list to keep up-to-date!)
I refused to put off my life to wait for a man. And I want YOU ALL to know — you have choice. You have options. There is more in this world to aspire to than relationship status. Chase that dream and ASPIRE.
What do you aspire to?
