I love being alone!
I really do!
I am not sure when I made the switch
from getting through my alone time,
to thriving on it!
For the first 35 1/2 years of my life..
I hated to be alone!
for the last 6-8 months of my life,
I have come to prefer it!
I would rather see a movie alone, then with a friend!
Its Friday night and I could not wait to get take out and start my new book..
I have many friends!
I have married friends,
who welcome me into their families,
I have single friends
who are always up for dinner or coffee..
yet, I rarely seem to choose this lately!
if its healthy!
Do I like being alone too much??
the things is,
other then every other weekend and a night during the week,
my kids are always with me!
I never get a sitter or go out when they are here,
why would I need to, as I have that time when they are with their dad.
and as they age they are people!
They converse and think and need...
I work with children and have wonderful co-workers!
My best friend is one of my co-workers so we chat daily!!
I go to church on Sundays and visit with friends..
and participate in a small group just for single moms.
I go to church on Wednesday nights and facilitate Divorce Care classes,
after having dinner with my best friend and her family!
My kids have ball practice during the week and I see other people!
I talk to my parents and sisters on a daily basis!
I am not really a hermit!
and I am reasonably social..
so I hope its a good thing
that on my weekends alone,
I plan things to do
that I enjoy,
and only sometimes factor in someone else.
Healthy or not,
its been a long road
to get to the place,
that I am comfortable in my home alone..
comfortable out alone..
and most important, comfortable in my own skin..alone!
