2014 will be different. I know it. I feel it. Yes, I say it every new year, but this time I believe it! I am welcoming new love in the new year. I am not holding back.
I wrote this very statement at the end of 2014, right before the New Year. And everything that I stated then has manifested.
In 2014, I met Boo. We began dating in the spring and were enamored and committed to one another soon after. In 2015, we moved in together – just a year shy of our one-year anniversary. In September 2015, we began trying for a baby. The next month I was pregnant!
On Christmas Day at midnight, Boo surprised me with a beautiful letter from my baby boy. The last page of the letter said, “Mommy, will you marry my Daddy?” I said yes!
It has all happened so fast. It’s all been such a blessing – one I was sure would arrive in due time. And I know it’s because I have faith in God and his timing. I haven’t always been patient. I haven’t always followed my heart and my gut. I haven’t always made the right choices; many of them were based on fear of abandonment, failure and not being enough. But, at the end of every heartbreak, broken relationship and moment of loneliness, I knew that I made the right choice.
I never once doubted that God would bring me my love.
Try as I may to be “less picky” and stick to a relationship for the sake of being in a relationship (being single wasn’t always fun for me) I just couldn’t shake the feeling that the reciprocal, consistent, dynamic and loving long-term relationship I craved was within reach. I could not give up or settle for less that I desired and deserved. As Mami said when I told her of our engagement, “No te desesperastes y llego tu amor.”
Now, I say the same to all of you: when manifesting new love do not despair. Desperation only leads to a relationship that temporarily fulfills the loneliness. You desire and deserve so much more than that. We all do.
