(My greatest love story may require traveling abroad, dancing with strangers, and donuts.)
Spending a day alone at the Moomba Festival, and my long-distance best friend, Gilbert, joined me after his class to try a Magic Circus ride. We ended the night watching fireworks. I stayed at Lucy & Gonzalo's house, a lovely puppet artist / painter couple with two adorable kids. Lucy gave me a note of her designer friends for me to visit & Gonzalo introduced me to a Spanish traditional mate. During my stay, I was lucky to witness their youngest baby take his first step for the first time.
Being single for quite some time now, I can say I'm in the happiest state I've ever been. Despite today's love-and-relationship oriented standard of 'relationship goals', meaning to have someone beside you to do everything with, people might ignore the cruciality of having a good balance. Have some time with yourself as much as the time you need to be with other people. Get to know yourself. Take yourself on a date. Fall in love with yourself. To be happy in whatever state I am, with or without company, to love and accept myself, to feel enough, is my relationship goal.
