Where have I been playing it safe?
Today is my birthday, or solar return if you’re into that sort of thing. And with each passing year, I always sit and reflect on how far I’ve come and where I’d like to see my year go. One way I’d like to do before my 34th birthday is to be more fearless. I want to have the courage to live life to the fullest extent, which means I can no longer play it safe. The one place I’ve played it super safe is in my dating life.
Recently, I met a new guy who is just beautiful. We met at work and when he first approached me, I thought it was a joke. I just couldn’t fathom why he would be interested in me. I chalked it up to him needing a sugar momma and avoided him for months. Recently, I’ve crossed paths with him again and this go around, I decided not to shun him…and we hit it off! Now, I can’t stop thinking about him. His smile, his touch, his cologne. It has been a long time since I felt this way about any guy because I’ve become comfortable keeping men at a distance.
Playing it safe for me means being able to control the outcome and if I can’t, I walk. Being fearless, rather becoming fearless, means that I have to openly go into situations where the outcome is not evident, and being completely okay with it. This is my chance to not play it safe. Happy Birthday indeed!
