I am Ready

I am Ready

“I have to know I can be happy without you,” I say quietly. He tilts his head and smiles. “You would be.” And I believe him.  He is the one who knows me best. The world’s idea of love can make you crazy…if you let it.  I’m embarking on a new idea…a different framework.  Though romance makes my heart swell and quickens my breath, I know I am not a body.  Bodies are sneaky…giving you glimpses of pleasure mixed with weeks of woe. No. I will skate along and sing the song, but my mind will play a different tune.  I choose to remember who I was before the guilt, before the shame.  And no longer will I blame. I let go. So. Perhaps it is not about being happy without him, but happy…just happy.  With an open mind and a decision to be kind, I am ready.  Aligned with love, below and above, I make peace with life.  I am ready.
