“I’m on another level when it comes to connecting with another soul
It’s no longer about finding someone that’s good
It’s all about finding someone that’s right for me
Custom-made, specially packaged and fully certified to handle my level of crazy
Now THAT I’m willing to wait for”
I wasn’t looking for love when James came into my life. I had endured far too many breakups, cried one too many tears and been hurt far too many times to want to get into another relationship. I was beyond tired, I was just simply done with the nonsense. There’s only so many times that you can deny your gut instincts before life confirms that you’ve saddled yourself with a liar and a cheat. There’s only so many second chances you can give a man before you realise that he will never change and there’s only so many times that you can let yourself down by settling for less than you deserve. So I decided that it was time to focus on me. I went from travelling to self-improvement and now I’m in the process of launching my own business. I’ve cut out all the weaves, perms and wigs and decided to go natural and even completely overhauled my diet. Gone are the meats, heavy fry-ups and oily foods that I’ve grown so accustomed to and now my kitchen is full of fruits, vegetables and a rich assortment of seeds, beans, grains and herbs. I have never looked and felt better. Now that I’m focussing all my energies on my new business venture, I haven’t entertained the thought of being in a relationship for over a year.
This summer, I finally made the decision to leave my 9-5 job so that I could begin my own investment company. I had enough experience, was surrounded by the right talent and had enough connections in the business world to make a respectable start. Over the last three months I’ve been looking at viable investment opportunities, understanding world markets, networking with promising entrepreneurs and working on a strong business launch. The only thing that I didn’t manage to do was find myself a good lawyer. Although, I was very optimistic about the success of my business, I knew that this line of work was not exempt from unforeseen legal entanglements and this was unfortunately, not my area of expertise. So with the help of a few solid recommendations, I decided to approach a law firm so that I could eventually enlist the support of an astute but affordable lawyer. I arrived at my appointment at Blacks & Blacks law firm and waited in reception to meet someone called James McIntyre. I didn’t have to wait long before I was greeted by a well-shaven and immaculately groomed rastaman. He was suited and booted but had the kindest eyes I’ve ever seen……………………
