We have been in Texas for almost 3 months now. Things are coming along in all aspects of our lives and we are adapting well to our new adventure. Yet, I find it difficult to connect with the people around me. Everyone is kind, for the most part. It’s me. It’s all me. Not that I am not kind…I think I am. I am just overly picky when it comes to people I want to share my life with. Share my secrets and children with. Invite into my home. Therefore, I am holding myself back from having a connection with anyone.
At this particular moment in my life, I don’t mind though. I feel like I can afford to be picky. I have worked very hard to be a positive person. One that doesn’t talk trash about others or see the bad in a situation that would make someone else cringe. I have been working on creating a life style for my family, not just a life. A life style that consists of optimism, kind words, honesty and togetherness no matter what the situation in front of us is. For these reasons, I feel that I have the obligation to choose wisely who I let into our lives.
Socializing is one thing. Befriending is another.
I have never been one to just let someone into my life right away. It always took months of talking and little get togethers or socializing before I would actually befriend them. This isn’t new to me. The way I want to live is relatively new to me. Optimistic no matter what. Speaking kindly no matter what, even though someone might not be as kind to you. It goes a lot further than thinking everything is terrible or will be terrible. That just because someone didn’t speak nicely to you, you don’t speak nicely to them.
So in this new adventure I am choosing to ride the ride of optimism. Knowing I will have that special connection at some point but that it is not necessary right now.
Keep your heads up my friends and keep looking toward the positive in all things!
