It’s difficult being the single woman at times when it seems that most of the friends you hang out with are now married and have kids. Yes, your friends are still your friends and you love them but things have changed in the dynamic that you are used to. They aren’t able to go out as much as you would like. They have couple things to do and most of that does not involve you as a single person attaching a third wheel to their party.

Yes, it can get uncomfortable. And yes, it can get lonely especially when it’s your best friends that have left you in the single world all alone. Unfortunately we all aren’t destined to meet the people we are meant to be with at the same time as everyone else. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles.

And the older you get the more common it starts to become. Hopefully this stage in your life won’t be too long. In the meantime enjoy being single! Don’t let yourself get caught up in their world. Take the time to do the things that you want to do, be bolder, be braver, and get involved with the things you wouldn’t be able to if you were in a couple.

Now is a better time than any to just do it. Quit questioning yourself and go for it. Don’t think about the what ifs or all those Hallmark movie moments you’d like to have. Take time for what you want to do. Don’t lose yourself in others and what could be. Go and find out more about yourself and while doing that, you may just find you were where you needed to be all along.

    May you successfully befriend your heart so that it always feels happy and safe, whether alone or with another.


  2. You know, the most attractive thing in the world is an independent woman who is happy and strong. When you enjoy your single life and make the most of your life, you’ll attract exactly the kind of guy for you because they will see you in action. Show them your best side by being yourself and living life–then you’re not going to change for anyone and you’ll end up being much happier, single or married. ❤ 🙂 I love your confidence and yes, the cliche is true–the right guy will come along at the right time, but don't stress about it until then. You said it just right!
