Aaron and Alison New Years Eve 2004
Good Evening Blog,
I don't usually write about love because, well, I don't really find myself to be an expert on the topic. As my dad lovingly, jokingly and honestly pointed out during our toast at the wedding, I've had a grand total of two boyfriends before I met and married Aaron. And since we're on an honesty streak here, it was kiiiiiiiind of a stretch to call them boyfriends. But, I don't really care now and I didn't really care then either.
The reason I'm writing this post on loooooove is because lately I feel like so many of my friends and searching for it, and that search consumes their life, their conversations, their being and their focus. And I don't know about you blog reader but I don't think that's healthy. As I mentioned before, I'm not any kind of expert on love or relationships but what I am an expert on is self esteem and a healthy self image. I'm not sure where, or why, but somewhere along the line I was okay with being me. Not only being me, but being by myself. I never cared about my lack of boyfriend status, my grandmother cared, my parents might have wondered if I was a leeeeeeesbian, but me? Nope.
So, what I think I'm trying to get across here to all of my loyal readers, male and female alike, don't turn every acquaintance of the opposite sex (or same sex depending on the way you swing) into potential future spouse material. Concentrate on yourself, being happy, making friends, and who knows? You might meet somebody on the street who will turn out to be your main squeeze.
