Dating Over 40: The Law of Attraction and a Truckload of Watermelons

Driving down the highway yesterday, I noticed a small pickup truck weighed down by cargo. The back end of the truck was riding lower than the normal horizontal position. From a distance, I couldn’t make out what was filling the truck’s bed, but as I got closer things became clear. Watermelons! A bountiful load of watermelons filled the back of the truck. That’s not something you see every day on a Connecticut highway.

This gave me a good chuckle and a warm, playful smile crossed my face.

I felt inspired by this vision. What a great photo – if I wasn’t driving and had a camera with me. One of those rare shots capturing a serendipitous moment in life. I realized that serendipitous occasions are frequent occurrences when using the Law of Attraction. The trick is to hold an awareness that allows you to recognize the event when it happens.. But, do I notice these special moments? Do you?

Time and time again I find the Universe is an abundant place for manifesting what we want in life. But, one very important feature of using the Law of Attraction effectively, is to watch for signs and be willing to take advantage of them.

Do you ever see an opportunity to talk to someone or attend an event, don’t do anything about it, then look back with regret? This is a great place to make yourself a promise right now that you are done with this lack of action. Commit to yourself that when possibilities present themselves, you will jump on them (so to speak). Say yes to a blind date, a party invitation, networking with a friend, a new outdoor activity, a singles dance. You get the idea.

Taking this a step further, what can you do if you don’t even notice the opportunities? If you let those coincidences and connection go by because you just don’t see them? This is more difficult because you’ll need to learn how to spot these serendipitous moments. For this situation, I recommend improving your awareness. In order to catch on that men are noticing you, flirting with you, interested in you, you’ll need to notice the signals. My suggestion is to have a friend point things out when he or she notices them to help you get more familiar with the signs.

Lastly, what have you been looking for that seems hard to find? I figure, if I can see a truckload of watermelons driving down the highway in CT, you can pretty much find anything – or anyone, any where and any time. That’s a bold statement, but true none the less. Love is available if you are open to it, looking for it, attracting it and believing that it’s possible for you.

Strengthen your belief and you shore up the very foundation that everything else will be built on. Your belief in love and it’s availability for you, are the underpinning of your magnetic pull and ability to MANfiest what you want.

Now, I admit, I wasn’t looking for a truck load of watermelons. But I was aware enough to have noticed and enjoyed the sight. Wake up to see the attraction, to notice a man’s attention, to be aware of opportunities that present themselves so you can take advantage of them. The Universe presents all kinds of gifts on a regular basis. It’s our job to recognize them, engage them, and enjoy them!

I bet next  time you eat a slice of watermelon, you’ll remember this blog post and my hope is that you’ll turn up your allure and feminine charm and open your eyes to events that will help you find the love you want and deserve.
