Single. So?

So I have 4 jobs.
I work full time as a special teacher, I teach 2 different afterschool programs, and I give therapy to kids on the side. Even with all that, I manage to keep my weekends free. That is my time to relax, read, catch up with friends, go the movies, whatever I wanna do. But believe it or not, it can also be a difficult time. Why? Because it makes me face the reality that I’m alone. I wake up Saturday mornings in an empty bed (Well, I wake up every morning in an empty bed, but Saturdays give me time to think about it…lol). It can be hard because I remember the days when I could roll over to cuddle and kiss and……make breakfast. Now I roll over to catch my dog staring at me like, “Can you get up and let me out, please?” Don’t get me wrong, this is not one of those sad, single, and lonely rants, but it’s a reality.

Not everyday you’re going to enjoy being single. And that’s ok.

It’s ok to desire companionship. It’s ok to want love and affection. The thing is, not to let those desires keep you from enjoying your life now. There are so many things you can accomplish in your single stage. Pursue your education (Dr. Days has a nice ring to it), go travel (Bahamas is waiting for me in May), fellowship with old and new friends, and so on and so on. This is a time to build. To prepare. To be a better you. Not just for you, but for the person that’s looking for you.

So you’re single. So?
