As a woman 60+ I have to say finding love outside of myself is difficult to say the least. Most men and when I say that, I do realize that does not include all men. However, most men over 60 are looking for a woman in her 40s.
The dating scene is daunting to say the least. Whether looking for a friend, a companion or a serious relationship it should not be the be-all and end-all. Relying on a love relationship to make you happy will never work.
Now in saying that, I am a firm believer in true love and walking along side a significant other is paramount in my life and life in general. It makes the world go round. There is nothing like sharing the things that make you smile with someone you love whether it be a view, travel, a shooting star or something as simple as sitting on a bench by the water watching little ducklings follow their mama.
The caution here is if you are waiting for that someone to come into your life –before you allow yourself to be happy — your rhythm of life mind, body and soul will suffer.
Find your happy in you first.
Trust that the right person will come along at the right time. Don’t allow your life to become a waiting game. I am not saying to give up on love, not at all! Just don’t sit around waiting for it is all. Go and do what you like. Do you have a bucket list? Work on that and when you least expect it., that person you have been waiting for, will find you. He just hasn’t found you yet…in the meantime, love the one you are with…YOU!
One thing on my bucket list was to go up in an Air Balloon of which I am happy to say I did last week. It was magical and I would do it again in a heartbeat. While flying at 3000ft I spotted a heart shape on land and I smiled. Here is a photo of that incredible moment. Be encouraged.
