How will you know....

“How do you decide who is the right person to share your life with? You will know that you have found the right person because you will feel balanced, stable, loved and the challenges that come with this person won’t drive you away.”
So many times over the years, I've meet someone and wondered, 'are they the one?'  Only to feel very differently about them or that prospect, after a date or two.  In fact, I seem to outgrow the men I meet... at the speed of light.
"I want to know their heart.  The rest is just details."
With everyone that comes in and out of my life, I learn at least one lesson and gain much insight into why people behave and feel the way they do.  Every experience I've had, has opened my eyes and my heart to many lessons.    
“The only reason we go through a difficult time, is for us to gain something from the experience and for us to grow. We can become better people, it’s all about learning and growing…”~Jacqueline 
Each lesson has given me the insight I've needed to understand others and to accept myself, just the way I am.  The lessons I've learned have lead me to acceptance and healing; allowing me to regain my 'self-respect' and grow into the person I was always meant to be.  
“Self-respect is the biggest lesson for all of us to learn and I think it is one of the most difficult. But wow, the rewards for learning this lesson are huge!"~Jacqueline
Once we see the reality of ourselves and our current situations, we can have perspective when we observe what is going on around us is.  Having perspective and an open heart, gives us true understanding and compassion.  
"It is endless all that can be revealed to us... if we open our hearts and see the lessons."
Now a days, I'm very specific in the qualities I want in the people I allow in my life.  Knowing and understanding who I am, has lead me to finally knowing exactly what I want, don't want, and deserve in my life and relationships... all relationships.  

Then listen to your intuition and your heart.  If they make you feel good and enhance your happiness... then they can be the one.  We have many 'ones' in our lifetime... it depends on where we are in our life and growth to whom is right for us at that time.
"You will 'know', once you 'know' and accept yourself and stop accepting less than what you 'know' you deserve."~Me

Love them or Leave them


  1. Well important to be open. How do you know? Well, I just knew. I prayed and felt very strongly that he was the one...even though he was dating someone else. Ha!! Guess what...he saw the light 5 months later and we have now been married 38 years!! Woot!!

  2. I like people in my life who make me feel good. And when I found the one I couldn't live without, he was the right one for me.
    I know it's different for everyone though.

    1. You are absolutely right!! I had forgotten to add that upmost thing. How we feel when we are Round someone. I also forgot about the warning signs in our gut; when someone is not someone we should be around. Thank you for adding this & reminding me what I missed. :-)

  3. Well said! We do need to be careful who we share our lives with, spouse, friend, or otherwise.

  4. I believe they are all the "Ones" because each one was a true in gem in some fashion along this rocky journey, good or bad.

    Thinking of you my lost friend. :)
