The Beauty of Traveling

62632b0fe54370579fde2ffd8c93d126Every time I travel, I discover something new about myself. This time I had a chance to reflect upon my love life. I realized that I am not emotionally attached to anyone.

More often than not, we women almost always find ourselves either dealing with our past, involved in a love interest of the present, or fantasizing about the potential of the future with our crush. It’s really tiring to be quite honest. Our heart is constantly in the hands of others with no time to just heal, grow, and be alone. There comes a moment when you must simply let your heart rest. And I am doing just that.

Two years ago I purposefully gave up dating for a set period of time in order to bring about total restoration of my heart. It was an amazing journey, and it was successful in healing me from things of the past. However, I still found myself connected to the present and the idea of the future of my love life.

I am not sure when the transition actually happened, but I have finally been set free. I can confidently and truthfully say I am no longer connected to anyone I have dated in the past or anything they have put me through, I am not connected to anyone currently, and I am not concerned with what will be in the future. My heart….is free. And man, it feels good!

I am still open to love. I am just enjoying this time of singleness. It is the break I desperately needed. I have finally been released from the chains that had my heart bound to guys who never deserved it in the first place. The next time I allow someone to enter into my heart, it will be a man who is worth every single risk. But in the meantime, I am going to allow myself to enjoy this new found freedom.
