Love is something that people seek. Romantic love to be exact. People love to feel the security and “wantedness” of being a part of a duo. But at any given time on any given day, as someone meets a new love, an old love splits up. The odds of any of us living life in-between loves is high.
So what do you do during the time you are in-between love?
I had the idea for this post last night in the shower. I originally wanted to write something about love on Tuesday, but I was drawing a blank. Yesterday, same thing. Last night in the shower I’m talking to myself asking why am I drawing a blank on this topic right now? Especially when I’m very good at helping everyone else at it. That’s when it jumped in my head that I haven’t been in love in about 6 years. Of course I haven’t been looking for it either. But what do people do when they are not in a relationship and/or are not looking for love?
I’ll tell you what you don’t do – you don’t WAIT.
Wait for what you ask? Wait for anything – that’s what!
I have watched so many people not live in-between loves but exist. You have to LIVE life. That’s what life is all about – living it.
Some “living” suggestions:
- Reconnect with old friends
- Make new friends.
- Spend time with family.
- Reacquaint yourself with you.
- Pick up a new hobby or restart an old one.
- Go back to school.
- Be creative: write, paint, sculp.
- Start a business
In the last six years I have gone back to school to get my BA in Psych, my coaching certification in sex coaching, and am working on my master’s in Psych. I have spent more time with family and am able to drive my mom when she needs it, reconnected with old friends, made a bunch of new friends, writing books, and growing my business.
Do yourself a favor and the next time you find yourself in-between loves, try one of my ideas and I can promise you that if it is love that you want he or she will arrive faster if you are not “waiting” around for them.
