BHAG: sacred partnership. The brief: Learn how to love without losing myself. For years, I avoided intimacy out of the fear of being trapped in an abusive relationship. Now I am ready to risk it. The stakes are high, but the rewards have gotten too tempting - to be seen, desired, nurtured, challenged and loved unconditionally, loved into my divinity. The goal: at least one face-to-face dating event or date per month; can be with the same person.
Done! For the last year, starting from 16 Nov 2017, I have been on 28 dates/events - at least one a month. It was a sensational journey of new experiences that required significant investments of time and emotional energy. I dedicated at least 10-15 hours a week (~700hrs this year!) to using dating apps, learning from relationship experts and reflecting on my experiences in connection with men.
It was worth it. I am proud of how I approached this item because I acted on my soul’s desire, framed it as a SMART goal and then achieved it by balancing incredible emotional courage with complete surrender. I am also genuinely proud of who I have become – a confident, desirable and empathic woman; an interdependent, flourishing human being, ready for sacred partnership.
