The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: 11/11/11
Quote of the Day:
“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” ~Douglas Adams
The Single Woman Says:
As a dreamer, an idealist, and an all-around girlie girl who believes in fairytales, wishes coming true, and happily ever after…I always said I wanted to be married on 11/11/11. It seemed like there was something so magical and RIGHT about that date, for years I just KNEW it would be the day that I would finally walk down the aisle to my Prince Charming.
Well, 11/11/11 is here…and having not yet met my +1, I am still just 1.
And you know what? I’m okay with that.
My whole life has been an exercise in following my own path…marching to the beat of my own drummer…taking the long way…
“My friends from high school
Married their high school boyfriends
Moved into houses in the same ZIP codes
Where their parents live
But I could never follow
No, I could never follow.”
~The Dixie Chicks
…So why would I start living up to my own expectations now, when God has a different set of expectations for me, so much higher and more amazing than mine could ever dare to be?
On this day, 11/11/11, that so long ago I thought I would be looking up into the eyes of the love of my life, I am instead looking up at my Vision Board, filled with goals and dreams and wishes that are leading me down a path that must be traveled alone…at least for now. And it makes me smile.
Yes, I might not have gone where I intended to go…but I think I have ended up exactly where I need to be.
Happy 11/11/11, my beautiful friends.
Make a wish. And dare it to come true.
