Abina – an unusual being
You ever hang out with someone, and think how lucky you are that they want to hang with you?
A good friend of mine, Cindy Joseph, said once: “I see how much I’ve grown, and how wonderful I’ve become, by looking at the amazing people I’m attracting into my life”.
This is true for me – it’s hard to see myself. But by looking at Abina, in a way I see who I must be ‘being’, for her to hang out with me. Which is pretty cool!
Ready to meet her?
Abina is smart, and wise, present, still, clear, and beautiful, and loving, and fun…..
She’s so interested in and curious about people.
She’s from Vermont and likes apples with almond butter, dagoba lavender dark chocolate, carrot burdock kinpura, and decaf soy lattes.
She loves to laugh.
And to get her hands covered in dirt while gardening.
She’s a snow boarder, trained yoga teacher, has adopted families in Africa, and manages the curriculum for a major nutritional school.
She finds everything perfect (mostly), is a perfectionist, asks for what she wants, and let’s me know every single time I do or say something that she likes.
More importantly, she’s responsible for me touring the Ben and Jerry’s factory last month!
We pressed each others buttons, and stayed in communication through it all. In the end, she wanted lots of time apart and I wanted lots of time together, so we let go the structure of ‘committed relationship’. A painful parting for me, yet – it was truly a wonderful three months.
And now I’m even clearer on what I want. Yay!
