I’m so cliche

You know all of those affirming life sayings that we repeat to ourselves.


You will find love only once you truly love yourself

Love comes along when you least expect it.

The right one is out there for you. We have to experience the things we do in order to appreciate him/her when they finally come along.


Which is when you least expect it and when you are completely at peace being alone and with yourself.


At least that’s how it’s happening to me. I am one of those people who honestly thought I would be single for the rest of my life. I couldn’t see myself with anyone because I thought I had too high of an expectation of what it was that I wanted. The qualities and attributes that I sought in a person clearly didn’t exist in a single man within my age range. At times it felt like I was looking for the Loch Ness monster or Bigfoot.  Something that people claimed existed but there was no tangible proof that it actually did.


At least that is how I used to think. Because it would appear that all those cliches have become my reality. I wince as I write this, because I am always waiting for the other shoe to drop. However, I think that I might have gotten lucky and it might just be my time.


So what do I do, now that I’ve found my potential true love. Well, I go on a diet and exercise kick. But not because I’m worried about how he will think about me. He loves every ounce of me. Of this, I’m sure. Just because I want to be the best that I can be. So I’ve been eating a lot better and I’ve been exercising on a regular basis. There have been times that I haven’t wanted to exercise but I’m getting a handle on that too. We’ve worked out somewhat of a schedule and I have no problem sticking to it, because, well, that’s what I do.


I haven’t had much time to read anything but I just started Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I felt that in the mindset I was in, that a little fantasy-esque romance was right in my wheel house for now.


Wish me luck!
