Day 3: Describe a Moment or Day When Being Single Was Really Awesome
At the risk of sounding incredibly cheesy…every time I interact with you guys, my readers, I am reminded of how awesome this single journey is. Why? Because when I hear from all of you about how seeing one of my tweets or reading The Single Woman: Life, Life, & a Dash of Sass has inspired you to dream bigger, shoot higher, go for the job you really want, take yourself out to dinner alone for the first time, walk away from a toxic relationship (and the list goes on and on and on)…I am reminded that the single journey isn’t really “single” at all…because we’re all in this thing together. Who understands the highs and lows and ups and downs and joys and pains of the tragic, magic life of a single woman better than other single women? Although I am only connected by heart and by the Internet to the majority of you, and may never meet most of you face-to-face, I think of you every day. I pray for you every day. I wish for good things for you every day. I literally wake up dreaming of something I need to tell you that day and go to sleep planning out what I need to share with you the next day. You guys are collectively the longest “relationship” I have ever been in – LOL! Almost four years and counting! So just know that I HEAR you. I SEE you. I read all your emails and tweets and Facebook posts and blog comments, even the ones I don’t have time to respond to. I am inspired by you. I live my life at a higher standard BECAUSE of you. And I would not have become half the woman that I have become over the last four years of this amazing journey without you. So THANK YOU. Thank you for sharing your bravery, your passion, your spunk, your beautiful hearts, your boldness, your tears, your fears, your stories, your LIVES with me every single day. It has been the greatest honor of my life to walk this single journey with you. And I can say with complete and total honesty that I am happy that I didn’t get married ten years or five years ago or last year or when the guy shut down the jewelry store to show me engagement rings or when fear caused me to run from the “perfect catch” guy or especially when the crazy ex texted me a marriage proposal at 3:00 am…because every closed door was pushing me toward the one I was really meant to walk through. After all, if I had become “The Married Woman” before I got to be “The Single Woman,” I would have missed out on knowing all of you. And I wouldn’t have missed this for the world.
So to narrow it down to just one day or one moment when it was amazing to be single isn’t really possible for me! Thanks to you, my beautiful friends, every moment is amazing to be single.
Because I have the BEST 550,000 best friends a girl could ever ask for.
