“Not single/not taken/ not on hold; but reserved for something wonderful “ quote unknown
(Before we get really into this blog can I please say that it’s a little confronting to write about myself in this manner but these words are meant to be about having a healthy gratitude and carving out a life of zest xo )
I’ve been told on more than one occasion that I am the full package. Maybe its because I work hard, holiday well, cook curiously, garden with enthusiasm (that’s code for I am always replacing plants), socialise often, love fashion & beauty, pay my own way and have a voice. I have always taken this as a compliment.
The sentence is often is also often followed closely with “Why are you still single – are you too picky??? “ It’s not meant to be mean or nasty however it is a little deflating. It must be confusing to most …let’s see if I can explain.
I attract men, I flirt and get flirted with, I’ve had lovely relationships which have ended for one reason or another and also a not ideal and quite unsafe relationship. I would love for a man to show up in my world and be “the one” – but its not happening.
Far from one to sit by the phone or hang out in on line dating sites I’m out and living my life. And God its great !!
I have no fear of being alone – I like my own company and my own home (which I bought all by myself !)
I like planned dinner parties, unexpected guests, random phone calls to catch up, coffee dates, wine & cheese get togethers…I have an incredible and rewarding job, respect from my peers, a great income, an amazing coaching biz, wonderful networking community of selfless and creative people, friends from school (yes from the 70’s!!!) friends made in recent years and friends that live afar that thank goodness for technology are so easy to chat to and catch up with.
My family is so supportive and caring and always there for me – mum, brothers, nieces & nephews, as well as aunts, uncle and cousins. I am blessed
Loss & heartache, confusion & grief, low esteem and lack of trust I’ve known them all – and they have led me to who I am today.
I live a life of gratitude, integrity, clarity, kindness, culture, self awareness, adventure and fun. So single it is for me but this definitely does not equal lonely. And a partner in life is so, so welcome – but he’s going to have to meet the brief.
To have known heartache in order to truly want to fill his heart again
To have seen wrong doings so he will have strong morals & kindness
To have felt defeat and is now brave courageous and loyal
To have shed tears and now knows the value of uncontrollable laughter
I think he’ll be the full package too !!!!
But until the universe brings us together I’ll continue to move forward with all things zesty – just as I have been..
Single and Fabulous !
