Perfect Timing

Waiting for perfect timing is something I've always struggled with -- my frustration at things not happening in my timing when I want them to manifest. But, there is something to be said about learning to sit back and be patient, and wait for perfect timing. Things don't always happen when we want them to, and that frustrates a lot of people. But that's because the universe knows best. There is a perfect time and place for all things to happen. A "sweet spot" so to speak. If you try to rush or force timing, no matter what you do, things will not happen the way you want them to. This is especially true in matters of the heart.

Case in point, in 2008 one of my first clients reconnected with an old friend at her high school reunion. Sparks flew and the chemistry was intense. They went out a few times and had tons of fun, but it didn't work out. They weren't in the right place in their lives for a serious relationship. Timing wasn't right. About a year later, they reconnected again. A few text messages went back and forth, they had another great date, but it soon fizzled. This same scenario would play out three more times throughout the years, but things never worked out, despite their intense chemistry. Then...there was a two year gap, and when they reconnected again, everything was different. They were different. They were both ready for a mature relationship, and timing could not be more perfect for both of them. 7 years later!!...They finally found their sweet spot.

The Unicorn Boyfriend - The Perfect Man!

When we're young girls, we tend to be attracted to the "bad boy" image. The guy who is mysterious, rebellious and challenging. As we mature, we understand the importance of having a partner who is grounded, strong, fun-loving and honest. A simple man who respects us, is there for us, and genuinely loves us. An all around good guy.

Remember the days before we were all boy crazy? As little girls we dreamt about unicorns, fairies and rainbows; magical things that, ironically, you can't ever really seem to catch. But you can catch a good man. An authentic man. A kind and loving man. He's the infamous Unicorn Boyfriend, and he is anything but a myth. He's real and he is out there. You just have to avoid wasting your precious time on Mr Wrong.

Here's how to spot him:

Better Late Than Never

Young love often leaves such an imprint on our hearts and brains that those partners are never truly forgotten. Sometimes that love is given a second chance, even decades later. Statistics show that former sweethearts have a better than 70% chance of reconnecting again later in life -- only this time, FOR GOOD. Listen to these stories and understand why it is so common for lost love to once again be found. How many of you have reconnected with old loves on Facebook or other social media sites?
