Because this is the first of my ongoing personal posts, I thought I should start out by telling you a little bit about myself. People tell me I’m cute. I’ve got short shaggy blond hair, I’m six feet tall, have light blue or grey eyes (depending on my contacts) and dimples when I smile. I just bought a 2 new pairs of ‘Lucky’ jeans since I’ve got my 32 waist back now that I’m purposely the thinnest I’ve been in 20 years. I look great and it feels great!
OK, so what’s behind my eyes? Well, I’ve got two Master Degrees, I was a member of Mensa as a teen, I have an unbelievable amount of life experience and I truly I believe you have something to learn from everyone. I’ve run a corporation and built a great business from scratch. I’m a computer freak, I like electronics, I’m very creative, enjoy museums, photography, reading, and love music.
What’s in my heart? I’m a very warm, compassionate, sincere, fun, romantic, generous and loving guy. I’m truly a wonderful person. Yes, I can say that now. It’s taken a while but I can say it and I can look in the mirror and really mean it.
What’s in my day? A great new guy who’s smart, adorable, and has a beautiful heart. A few close friends, fun neighbors, some terrific Internet friends, a great place to live, a little dog, Thai Chi, music always playing, and a great passion to live for the moment.
I’ve learned that I should be treated only the way I feel I should be treated, and I will never again accept anything less. Never!
Packaging up a previous nightmare to make room for the rest of your life was'nt easy. I promised myself to let the process move at it’s own speed. When I was ready, I would ship off the old crap from the relationship nightmare that my ex created for me over 18 years. I also realized part of what I needed was to make sure every person along the original route would finally know the truth whether it was via this blog, or other means. Unlike my past eighteen years with him, this would no longer be his continuous abusive surprise package. The truth has been recently packaged on my terms because I was finally ready for everyone to know.
So the nightmare box is packed, a very careful route has been chosen. I can assure you that the route no longer includes how I live my daily life especially with a great new guy right next to me. I’ll be telling you more about him, and how a few brief hellos that we had a few years ago turned out now to be so much more. All about that in my next post.
