I decided on my ride today that I am getting married….. to Myself. I haven’t figured out how to propose to Myself yet, but I am really excited about making this big move in my life. I already have a couple of rings and was thinking of being non-traditional and wearing one of them on the right hand. I won’t mind.
You may be thinking this is a bit hasty, but I feel good about this move. I mean, I am a good person, and while I am not the neatest of folks on a day to day basis, I am aware of how my habits affect others, and I make an effort to not allow my clutter to affect their life in a bad way. I can already see myself straightening up more.
I am honest, and I can actually read my mind, something most partners only think they can do. Plus, I strive not to make the same mistake twice, so while I may disappoint myself now and then, I feel I have learned some of the biggest lessons, and will always turn every challenge into a learning opportunity. I am honest with myself, something I require in a relationship. I also respect myself and know I have a lot of love to give.
I am good-looking enough and trust that I will make every effort to age gracefully. I eat healthy and don’t drink too much, so the future looks good on that account. I don’t plan on leaving Myself. I can tell that I am spending the rest of my life with Myself, and I am happy with that.
I love my kid and my dog, and I can be a little impatient with either, but I strive always to do the best I can for them and look forward to sharing the responsibility of caring for them with Myself.
I can depend on Myself and don’t ever have to wonder what I am doing or where I am. I am pretty sure that over time, I will be able to have an open relationship with Myself as well. That will be slow-going, for good reason, and I don’t want to rush it, but I think that with time, I can trust Myself to be intimate with someone else.
I am smart, have a good sense of humor, am passionate and articulate, healthy, and strive to do the right thing. I feel lucky to have found Myself, and I am looking forward to articulating that lifelong commitment to be the best partner I can be.
Now, if I could only figure out how to propose to Myself….
