Are you flying solo?
Happily Single? Reluctantly Single? Angrily Single? Which is it?
For so long I was sad that I was single. But through the work I’ve done & am still doing on myself, through my many prayers with my bestie and through my ‘giving it up to God’, again, I’m able to sit peacefully in it. I call it Flying Solo. And I truly do believe it is temporary.
Am I happy about it? No. BUT I’ve certainly learned to find peace in the middle of it. Yes, I wish it were different. Sure I miss having a companion to call on and go out with. BUT I’m peacefully living my life as it is. I do want to be married again some day or at least in a loving committed relationship, BUT I’m not miserable because of my singleness. Like I used to be. I don’t dwell on it or make myself feel less amazing because of it. I’m a devoted friend, loving mom and I am creatively talented.
I appreciate my time…taking care of me, going to the gym and spending quiet time before work with my coffee in one hand and my devotional in the other and dabble in my sewing room. I schedule “Ladies Nights Out” once a month to get girlfriends together, I volunteer my time when I can and tinker in my yard on the weekends.
Life is good flying solo.
I hope you realize that maybe it’s just not the season for you to be in a relationship. Do your kids need your attention? Does your health require your rigor? Does your latest goal need your discipline? Whatever you’re going through, my hope is that you put your energy on YOU, take care of YOU, do much for YOU and know that when the season is new, when your heart is ready & your space allows. It will come.
Till then stay available, vulnerable and humble.
And have fun!
