What to Do While You Are “Waiting” for Mr Right
I’d like to focus my attention on those of you who are still waiting for Mr or Mrs Right. It’s easy for me to write to you because we’re in the same boat, and I’ve learnt a lot in the past year-and-a-half about “waiting” for Mr Right.
You might wonder why I’ve put “waiting” in inverted commas. It’s because I do not believe that we should be waiting, which is to:
- Stay in a place until an expected event happens, until someone arrives, until it is your turn to do something.
- Not do something until something else happens.
- Remain in a state in which you expect or hope that something will happen soon.
As much as having a romantic partner you love is such a beautiful thing, it is not the end all and be all in life. If that was the case, many wonderful men and women who do not have or want a boyfriend/girlfriend/partner/spouse would not survive this life. It’s a reality that not everyone will have a mate either at specific points in their lives or later on due to break ups, divorce and death (sad, but true). There is more to life.
So, instead of sitting around and wondering when your knight in shining armour or damsel in distress will show up, here’s what you can do:
1. Work on being your personal best and love yourself!
Listen, the most important relationship you will ever have is your relationship with yourself. When you have a great relationship with you, you will be happy and when a lover comes along they will add to what’s already there and your life will overflow with love and joy. Get to know, love and improve yourself and you’ll attract more potential partners.
2. Find meaning in life and live your best life!
What are you on this earth for? I doubt it’s only to find the love of your life. Enjoy figuring that out and exploring life, it has so much to offer. Also, discover and pursue your interests and passions and hone the type of lifestyle you would like to live. For me, it’s a marketing-related career, businesses that have to do with pretty and artistic items and experiences, and living a fruitful lifestyle that includes a bit of travel. I am pursuing my interests and passions and living the type of life I desire, and I have never been so happy in my life!
3. Don’t be overly anxious!
The worst thing you can do is be overly anxious. This is when you will make mistakes like getting into a relationship or marriage with someone who isn’t suited for you to later on get divorced. Relax, make the most of yourself and your life and trust that God or The Universe is aware of your desires and will deliver. And, when it does, don’t forget to get in touch with us to plan your wedding!
