Ten Monologues For Women:Monologue #10- Writing Our Love Story








I had it all outlined in my head. Our love story. The tale that would conquer all love stories coming before or after it. It is a story of opposites attracting, falling in love, and staying together forever.

Alas, it didn’t really turn out that way.

Instead, I ended up getting dumped two weeks before our wedding sans a proper explanation.

He mumbled something about not being ready after all and that was it. It turned out to be a blessing.

Life with him would have severely stunted me in too many ways to count.

I fell in love with the man I knew that he could be. But, not the man he actually was. Not a good thing in the long run.

 It was only going to lead to disappointment for both of us.

At first, I was upset because I felt as though he didn’t fight for our relationship.

 He just walked away because he felt overwhelmed with his feelings towards me.

"I am not ready for this relationship aka I just don’t wanna be with you."

Years of passed by and now I can see what a blessing our breakup was. I ended up on this whole other path because of it. So, as I write our love story.

 I know that it will be short and abrupt but, on the other side of it I found clarity like I have never known.

Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
