So it’s my Birthday again, I’m having a great day and it’s only 9:55am, actually my day was started at 12 midnight by a surprise candle from the Hillingdon Street Angels, I was on duty till 4am.
My oldest child who is really sensible pronounced my age as if she was making a new law, my younger daughter who has a Christmas attitude to everything told everyone I was 28. I decided to go with the latter.
I’ve also found a really amazing new freedom. It’s called being single and being ok with it. When you first become single you go on a dating spree. I joined dating sites and got nowhere. Since I’ve got to the point where I’m actually ok with being on my own for the rest of my life, I feel a lot less under pressure.
Its not I’m not open to a relationship but at the moment it’s that I am happy where I am at. Removing the pressure of talking to random strangers on dating sites frees you up to do useful things. I’m still on those sites and I still check my messages but I don’t NEED to be there, if no one talks to me it’s not the end of the world, because I realised that even just with Facebook friends I am not alone. The manifold greetings sent from around the world remind me that it’s ok to be single.
Anyway here’s to another year of things getting better.
