Meeting Someone New
Meeting someone new is always exciting to me. Meeting someone you are romantically attracted to or meeting a new friend. Getting to know someone else is one of my favorite parts of being human.
Yesterday I hung out with someone I had met a year ago. We met at a soccer game. I was there to see my ex girlfriend play. At the time, my ex and I hadn’t started dating yet and I had never had a girlfriend before. Attended the game was filled with so many nervous emotions for me and I remember this woman was so easy to talk to and so similar to me.
Flash forward to today – one year later – we finally hung out again. Initially, we both thought it would be very professional. My goal is always to help make people’s lives better, using MINTOA of course, and she is considering getting into the life coaching spectrum.
When we met up, everything was completely different than we expected. We have so much in common! We talked for over seven hours, never realizing how the time was passing by. Many times we said that when the other person was talking we felt as though we were still talking because the thoughts were the same.
The thing about talking to a mirror, is that it shows you who you really are and what you really want. It made me realize that I have been holding on to some situations and relationships long past the time that I should have. There are many things I am now ready to let go of.
Meeting her was an amazing experience. Not in a romantic way as in I want to date her, she is working through a relationship that she values and loves and wants to hang on to. But rather, for me it was romantic in the way that I realized that people like her exist. I can find a strong, independent, beautiful, intelligent, positive and happy person with whom I can connect on every level. I want that person and I finally believe I deserve that person and that type of relationship. This week I was happy to learn that the type of person I have been looking for exists and now it is up to me to find them.
