The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: A Journey Isn’t Always About a Destination
Quote of the Day:
“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” ~Paulo Coelho
The Single Woman Says:
Today I leave on a whirlwind road trip that is truly a full circle moment for me. My group of wonderful, hilarious, colorful, fiercely loyal and endlessly sassy girlfriends from all over the country are flying in for what we have dubbed the “Three Days, One Knight” road trip. It’s no secret that I am a huge New Kids on the Block fan, and Jordan Knight is bringing his solo tour to the south, so we’re hitting three consecutive nights of shows in Atlanta, Nashville, and Louisville. What makes this weekend particularly special for me is that it coincides with the recent release of my first book, “The Single Woman’s Sassy Survival Guide: Letting Go & Moving On,” which has been climbing up several bestseller lists on Amazon, much to my awe and to my excitement. None of this might have ever happened without the solid base of NKOTB fans who started following me in the early days of The Single Woman and helped launch the movement to the next level. It seems fitting to celebrate the success of a book that’s all about my journey as a single woman by taking a literal journey. To some it might seem silly and pointless and childish even…and to those people I would say: So what? Not all journeys have to lead someplace life-changing. Some are designed to simply celebrate life. Not all journeys are meant to move you forward. Some are meant for making the most of the moment you’re in. And not all journeys take you to a new place. Some are for retracing paths you traveled long ago, only to discover something you missed the first time around.
This weekend, I celebrate life. I celebrate friendship. I celebrate childhood dreams and wishes on stars and magical moments that can only happen when you’re willing to stop for a moment and stop pursuing the dream long enough to remember what inspired you to chase it in the first place. I urge you to do something silly, and nonsensical, and frivolous, too. Something that might make other people look at you and shake their head disapprovingly. Why? Because those are usually the moments that wind up on your wall in a frame as some of the best moments of your life.
