Singleness is such a beautiful gift and somehow I forgot to really appreciate and enjoy the journey along the way because I was always so focused on being in a relationship. I was caught up creating a wish list of the things I wanted in my future forever that I didn’t pay attention to the fact that I am not those things on my wish list. I was caught up in my ideal expectations that I couldn’t enjoy the process of getting to know someone and growing with them. I was caught up wanting to create a life with someone that I wasn’t enjoying my single life.
Hey, it’s better late than never...so after 39 years, I finally came to understand what people meant when they said, “Enjoy being single!” It actually took me going on the dating app (Yup, I went on it again!) to really understand and appreciate my single life. I’m one that likes to give something another chance especially if it left a bad taste in my mouth. Why? Because I love the idea of seeing things redeemed and restored! And this time around, I can honestly say that I found online dating to be fruitful and enjoyable most of the time. My approach was...STAY OPEN-MINDED! I met and chatted with people I usually wouldn’t be open to and I learned so much about myself and believe I’m coming out a better person from the experiences.
Ultimately, I decided I’m gonna go out with guns blazing and enjoy my last year as a thirty something single lady! So what does that look like for me?
And now begins the journey of SJinspired enjoying her single life...
