Sometimes I get a bit Obsessive Compulsive. I cannot believe it, but with all I have going on with work, with family and friends, and the holidays, thoughts of My Mr. Big keep coming back to me. Where is he? What is he doing? Is he happy? Not happy? Is he thinking about me, about us, what we shared?
I have spent the year holding back with new men… not wanting to get in too deep just in case My Mr. Big came back. I now know I’ve been wasting my time (or maybe not, its made me pick a higher caliber of men EXCEPT for Chicken Legs.. another story coming soon), but it seems to have put me in obsessive mode. I’ve not seen or heard from this man since April. He has disconnected his phone, let his email expire… he has not reach out. He has not tried to contact me NOR has he left me any avenues to do so. Yet, I still think of him.. a lot.. too much in all honesty. I loved what we shared, it was exactly what I want in a relationship. But it obviously won’t work, he’s not interested. So why have I NOT moved on, found that “magic” with someone else?
Because that “magic” is so hard to find. Sometimes it falls in your lap…. but it cannot be forcibly created. It’s just happens, just shows up, just there… that extra something between two people who just is. One of my favorite bloggers, ThatPrecariousGait, just wrote a great post on the New Normal. I loved her insight on life, love, and moving on after divorce. After reading her post, I realized that my new normal, the one I enjoyed so much, was the life I shared with My Mr. Big. I loved that life… It’s like my favorite job. I miss it, I want it back…
But alas, I am keenly aware that I now need a “new new normal”… not one where I just live, waiting, hoping, that My Mr. Big comes back… Its going to require me to get involved, to jump in to the pool of life, and get busy living. This screams of a New Years Resolution.. I’ll keep you posted.
