I like to create rules, rules that I know will eventually be broken, rules that I always intended to break. My girlfriends say that I am reverse goal setting whereas the boys in my life just say I am a rule breaker.
They are my rules, so I get to break them when and how I want to break them. Oh, and it is so much fun to break rules. From April until now, I needed to cocoon myself and protect myself from what I knew lay ahead – dating.
The fact is that I never really dated before I met my former husband. Rereading college papers, the whole concept of dating seemed arduous to me.
After the respite this summer to nurture myself, I am ready to have fun. Being taken to dinner now sounds enjoyable whereas it did not when I set the rules.
The world is my oyster and I plan to enjoy it.
