You’re probably sighing deeply from the title because you’re either a sceptic when it comes to love and/ or the Law of Attraction and you’ve already emotionally prepared yourself for another lonely Valentine’s Day, or you’re simply curious and want to give this a shot, or find out if this is click bait because maybe it turns out, when you get to the end of this post, that I’ll be sitting on my couch this year, once again, snuggled up with my mom while we watch some of her favourite TV shows like it’s another ordinary night, only this time, I bought loads of chocolate.
My year sort of started off late as I’d gone off to spend the rest of my festive season with my best friend in the Eastern Cape Province (South Africa).
In the past, like many people, approaching the New Year meant setting resolutions. I’ve gotten over the hype around that since I don’t do too well with sticking to long-term goals but, I’ve noticed how very few people throw their spirituality into their various resolution lists.
I’ve been manifesting attracting my soul mate for almost an entire year now and it’s been fun, games, hard work and sometimes actual tears. I’d scripted about this man and made a whole list of qualities which I thought would complement mine if he had them and, let me tell you, it hasn’t been an easy journey but I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.
At the end of last month, I’d sat down and pretty much planned my whole October to the T: what I’d like to eat, what time I’d be waking up and going to bed, what I’d be reading and listening to, what fitness plans I intended to try out… it got overwhelming so quickly and I suppose it’s only natural that it did because I’ve never had to stick to any plan (except the usual routines of getting ready for class or work); this was something new.
