That can't happen, can it?

Some of us think, "That will never happen to me." Many of us are right, especially with it comes to faithfulness. I, for one. can't imagine myself ever creating an emotional connection to a man other than my husband. I love knowing him and slowly but surely, letting him know me. We are married just over three years and it still feels amazingly new.

It isn't in me to be unfaithful, I am sure.


I also never considered that my career, my passion yes, you could say it is my life work, would start to be more of my focus than my husband. Me. So busy in a creative hurricane of thought and activity that I hadn't noticed the connection between us was wearing thin. I was having so much fun with my business and with the tweeple and other online connections that I didn't see what was happening.

He missed me and, bless him, my husband didn't know how to approach me. He told me later that he didn't want to hurt my feelings so he was holding back and not telling me what was going on with him.

Things were getting strained between us yet finally we were able to break through. We had words one night and both of us spoke our minds. Things were intense but we handled ourselves pretty gracefully all and all.

He left me with some things to think about. I love my work. I love helping women connect the dots and see hope in their relationships.  I love social media, Twitter and Facebook,  and the relationships I am finding across the world.

Plainly said, I love him more. I want to delegate more and let go of details I don't need to be handling. You know why? Because I can't delegate being a soul mate and I miss him. I want to spend more time with him. I want to be a soul mate.

I have reapportioned my time and my commitments. I am planning career goals with my husband and including him is bringing a new level of trust for me. I am working less and painting more. I am moving slower and spending more time outside.

My husband has been extra thoughtful as I have been gearing down. Plus I am thrilled to feel a new connection between us. It is that, more than a re-connection, it feels like a new connection. I just appreciate him more. I am moved by his commitment to be with me.

When I deliberately choose to think about those two things, my heart warms toward him. Abraham Hicks says "Think about what you DO like about a person and that is what you will see in the person." It is nice to have time to think about my husband and have such warm feelings again.

So did I cheat?

What do you think?
