So LoLo Jones was back on the radar the past couple of weeks - not because of the Olympic trials, but because...at age 29...she has disclosed that she's still a virgin. It's a gift she wants to give her husband, she says.
I was given grief for being 19 and still a virgin - so imagine being a virgin at 29. No, seriously...I'm actually trying to imagine it. Keeping the kitty cat to yourself and not giving into all those urges must be harder than Chinese arithmetic. LoLo said it was WAY harder than training for the Olympics....and I totally believe her.
But when you think about the alternative - not being able to deal with the emotional ramifications of having sex, or giving it up to a complete jerk who you don't love, or who doesn't love you - leaping over hurdles on a track might be a worthy trade-off. I think I'd rather have a gold medal than regret having my cherry popped by a some dude just to get my rocks off. Crossing the finish line as the #1 hurdler in the world is orgasmic in and of itself.
With all that said, here is my question of the day. Do any of you - male or female - wish you'd waited until you were married to have sex, or simply just waited until you were a little older? Or has sex been the best thing to happen to you since...forever...and you wouldn't change a thing?
Over the years, I've been blessed to have spent time with, befriend, love, learn from and share experiences with people who have helped me grow and inspire me everyday. They have shared words of wisdom, strengthened me with encouragement, gave me joy with a smile, comforted me with a hug, gave clarity to my visions and dreams and renewed my spirit with faith. It is through family and friends that I manage to be happy and hopeful.
These relationships work because we share our philosophies, our personal truths and an outlook that prompts us to seek something greater in all and in ourselves. Sharing a journey heartedly illuminates our lives and enriches our experiences. It keeps us moving....always evolving....ever changing.
I have been transformed by the wisdom, opinions, insights and revelations of those who have shared their journey with me. It's a blessing I long to share with you through my first ever blog. For me, writing is a reflection of my own direct experience and I look forward to all of you sharing your thoughts and experiences with me.
So...with that said....can I just say.....??? :-)
