A Story of Love featuring Paddington Bear

What an 80s song and Paddington Bear have in common

Last week I shared a personal story about how I attracted a bad relationship..and how I put up with it… remember?

‘They will be around when you’re long gone’.. OUCH !!

Well just a few days later – I was listening to the Radio – something I don’t very often…. I was listening to Radio 2.. which is a great station for ‘reminicing’… and who came on..

Lionel Richie… Penny Lover….

OMG – I just had to Share this with you – because this story is the total Opposite of the ‘other story’…

This was some years earlier…

I had gotten out of my comfort zone and gone on holiday on my own – yes a very naive 20 something year old – who went on an 80-30’s holiday – What was I thinking ???

do you know what happens on 80-30 holiday??? well thats for another blog/note…

I was horrified by the behaviour that went on – ROFL.. I was not your ‘average’ 20 something year old.

Anyway, I saw this guy – tall dark and handsome (yes I obviously have a thing for these types) however this one was Very different…..

Long story short

Me and this guy got together – he would watch me by the pool.. He was with a gang of ‘mates’… however he was ‘different’.. Whatever they were eating or drinking – he would offer me…

At the end of the holiday – we got together…

Once again – he lived in a different part of the world so I would travel up to his part of the world.. and occasionally he would come down…

He would meet me at Paddington station – from what i remember – he would have come along with one of his friends to pick me up = and I do remember, feeling amazing and also a little embarassed because he would just say ‘isn’t she gorgeous’…and generally rave on about me…. as we drove to his house…

He did this, the whole of the relationship – would just tell me how lovely I was…wow what a boost…

He also gave me Lionel Richie’s Album..with All of its Love Songs on there…

OMG – I was in heaven…

And One of the best of all – because we would always meet up At Paddington – he gave me a Paddington Bear – yes the 3 foot variety… which I still have to this day – some 20 years later…

Whats the lesson here? Remember the good relationships, what did you Love about that relationship.

Write a list down to the Universe

This is what I want in my ideal man/woman –

Feel the feelings you felt, how that relationship made you feel…
See his/her smile when you are with them.

Feel the touch of their skin on yours….

Get into that Happy Place….

Happy Manfiesting
