The right time …



I have led an interesting life .. a life that I can look back and smile at.

A life that has sometimes hit the dust and a life that has reached the stars.

There have been times when I thought my world was ending not realising that it was simply the start of something new.

Most of all I have learned from my life that the bad times and the good times will come round in equal measure and it is how we deal with both of these that really matter.

In the good times I have learned very little about myself and life.. I have simply enjoyed my life as it was then.

In the bad times I have learned so much about myself, not always good, but always a great lesson.

I have met the wrong woman at the right time, and the right woman at the wrong time .. but for once in my life I have finally met the right woman at the right time.

I am not expecting the future to be all roses, because I know that life isn’t like that .. but what I do know is that I have found someone who I have total and utter trust in, a woman who gives me peace, yet lights my fire, a woman I want to make smile forever.

Soppy .. maybe … but the truth.

I am content, I am happy.  I am home.


My Passion & My Peace

passion peace

There are times in life when we lose things without really realising it.

I knew that for a long time I had lost my peace, but over the past couple of years I have deliberately chosen a way of life that let me find my peace, and myself, again.

I found that with my new role as a Celebrant that the passion that I had held for recruitment for many years before it ebbed away, had returned.

I was at peace, I was single, my life was full and I was content.  I was also wrong.

Out of nowhere a wonderful lady fell into my life.   I say fell, as neither of us were looking for anything more than friendship but that “something” that you just cannot put your finger on, or understand, happened.

And I am so glad it did.

Suddenly there is a spark in me again.  I guess it was always there, but I had forgotten just how nice it is to feel really passionately about another person.   I did have passion for my work, but on a personal level I had just sort of forgotten about it.

The great thing about this relationship is that it is not just passion, I am old enough and wise enough to know that passion does eventually die down and it is what you are then left with that matters.

What I have now is a feeling of peace and calmness with what is going on … it just feels right.  I have a woman who is beautiful, funny, kind, caring and simply wonderful! … there is no need for pretence or hidden agenda’s … it just feels perfectly peaceful and right…. we just fit.

I have found a woman who has not only managed to give me more peace than I already had .. but has rekindled the spark of passion in me.

I feel alive again…. and it feels wonderful!

When two worlds collide



Sometimes, if we are very lucky, we meet someone who has a profound effect on our lives.

Out of the blue, two world collide and they just naturally fit.  There is no pretending, no having to try too hard, no doubt .. just a comfortable, peaceful feeling that something feels right.

I have always said that you have to be on the same path as someone .. and that is still true .. but sometimes a wee detour brings you to someone who is heading for the same place as you, just from a different direction.

I have found peace in something that normally fills me with doubt and frustration .. and for me the peace that this gives me is priceless.

On paper we are from very different places in life .. I have walked boldly along the path of being gay and out .. while my partner has taken faltering baby steps .. but now our strides match and I truly feel I have someone by my side.

Our journey is very much beginning .. and there are no guarantees that we will reach our destination together ..but the niggles that normally bother me just do not exist .. I don’t feel I am being used as a temporary measure, a guardian or put up with.  I feel truly appreciated for me…and I feel understood …  and I hope that I am able enough and worthy enough to repay the true peace and contentment that I have from this back.

As my pal Meg said to me the other day “you have found someone who suits you” .. in truth I didn’t find her .. we just sort of stumbled upon each other by accident .. two disillusioned women .. one scared of what the future might hold .. the other too cynical to want to even bother about a relationship.  It was certainly not a meeting of minds … but perhaps a meeting of hearts.

I like to think so.
