SOAPBOX of the week: laundry list love

“You can’t sweep people off their feet, if you can’t be swept off your own.”     – Clarence Day, author
Are you still searching for that “love of your life”?  Waiting for your soulmate to show up and totally knock your socks off?!  And have you noticed that as your patience runs shorter, your number of must-haves runs longer?  I’ll bet your laundry list of expectations net an impossible Ken or Barbie…that virtually no one can measure up to.  If so, perhaps, as you’ve been looking with blinders on, countless loves looked-over you in turn –only experiencing you as a particular, judging and fearful person with a clipboard.  Yikes!  I’m not saying lower your expectations- I’m saying raise your curiosity and open your mind to things unfamiliar and off the list!  You might just be “wowed” by the fabulous, exciting new YOU that emerges…that could have crowds swooning!
