I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. That is the statement that most makes my life coach quiver ... and then she says "Oh, this will be interesting, or dangerous." Then she laughs.
But I have been thinking. It's two years since the teenagers and I moved into our new home...it's not so new anymore but this whole single parenting thing is not what I had envisaged all those years ago when the teenagers were born.
Now that we have had time to catch our collective breaths, I've been thinking about what comes next.
I'm not sure what that is. My priority is to get the teenagers through school and have a great relationship with me and their dad. We are all doing pretty well with that, now.
Then I think about myself and what I want. Art, love, music, writing, money to live on, beautiful friends. I am surrounded by beautiful friends. I had dinner last night with one of them, then I snuck in a couple of cheeky drinks with another.
I made a beautiful friend at the end of 2013 who taught me much about how men think about relationships. I didn't leave my previous life for someone else, and I haven't found someone else, although I do meet many intriguing and interesting men. Most of them are married.
The two men I know who are single are even more unavailable than the married ones...isn't that the way life is?
Let's see what the Universe delivers next.
