Today I’m happy about being a single woman! I’m grateful to be of a mind to celebrate my independence.

I spend plenty of time wishing I had a really great partner, but the reality is that I don’t at this time. The most true thing I can say is that I don’t know if I’ll ever have a partner and I don’t know that I won’t. I just don’t know.

My plan is to spend much more of my time celebrating that I have ME! I have an amazing family, a mind-blowing number of the coolest friends¬†I could possibly imagine, a beautiful place to live, a rad cat, a career that engages and challenges me, a healthy body that easily experiences peace and pleasure, a capable, creative mind, a huge heart, and a powerful prayer for my life and my happiness. Whoa…that’s a humbling amount of blessings when I think about it. And they just go on and on.

I am about to take 3 whole days off and I can do whatever I want, whenever I want, without checking in with anyone if I don’t want to.

Sometimes it can feel lonely, but in this moment it feels heavenly. I’m not accommodating anyone, comprising with anyone, reacting to anyone, or taking care of anyone besides myself.

I love all kinds of relationships. My intention, for as long as I can remember, has been to be a good, kind, helpful person, who makes every effort to heal myself so that I can at least try to bring no further suffering to anyone else, and at best, further happiness, joy and peace for as many people as possible. That’s what I’m up to at all times. I fail constantly, but keep trying to do it better always.
