The Silver Lining...

.

So yesterday I bitched and moaned. No one really liked that, at least I didn’t so today I’m going to something a lot more creative and happy. I did something like last week that I haven’t done in a LONG time. I went out on a date.

It’s been over eight years since I’ve gone a date with a complete stranger. Someone who I didn’t know personally already and was introduced to by a friend who thought we would hit it off. It’s not that I don’t like that type of thing, just well, you know how it is. Personally I don’t date around, I pick a lady and see where it leads, always been my M.O.

Her name’s Amy. She’s a bit of an oddity but in a good way. Our first date we went to Denny’s (Which I hadn’t eaten at in a very long time) where we sat and talked for about six hours before I figured out I should go home because I had work the next day. She’s a free spirit, does a lot of community work and doesn’t rely on alcohol or meds to keep her world going. (Can you say relief?)

We’ve spent some time together. She’s met my friends, as few as they are, and I’ve met her friends…which seems like the whole state. You ever watch a western? Where there’s the bar maid that’s beautiful in an untraditional way? Yea that’s Amy. I remember the first time she was messing with her hair (she’s got red hair) and she picked it up, and looked at me a certain way and it was like sitting in the old west, very cool.

Rambling. Anyway the purpose of THIS post was to show that there is a silver lining in every situation. This is obviously a fun person I’m hanging with as I’m not looking for anything either serious or long term but what she has helped me learn is that I still am someone that others want to meet.

Don’t forget that in your own situations. While you might be up against a wall now…there’s always tomorrow and it may be brighter indeed.

I pray for love, light and laughter for you all this weekend. Have fun guys, enjoy your lives. I’ll be back next week.
