Society makes us feel that being single is a bit like having a cold. A transient state of unpleasantness that will pass. Once you weather the storm, there will be brighter days ahead. But I ask, why must these days be dark?
It is entirely possible that you will find your life partner in the future. But that doesn't mean that the time before that is just filler while you wait for your "real" life to start. THIS is your life - if you don't love it or even like it, I ask (curiously, not judgingly), WHY? Are you waiting for the partner of your dreams or longing for the social life of your 20's when friends were unmarried, without kids and available for fun? It's time to stop feeling like you've missed the boat or that you've been dealt an unlucky hand and it's time to recognize this current moment in time for what it is...precious! You have a unique opportunity to examine your life and ask yourself what you really want and why. You have the freedom to create a life that excites you and that you love.
This isn't about being an "independent woman" who doesn't need a relationship nor is it about making yourself better and therefore more attractive to the partner of your dreams. It's about you getting to really know and love yourself and being fired up and excited for NOW. Ladies, it's time to shine!
If this message resonated with you, I hope you'll be excited to learn that I've decided to host a workshop to help us start to get our shine on. It isn't a dating seminar or a relationship bashing session. It will be an opportunity for us to come together and start figuring out how we can get comfortable with where we are right now. It will be held on Thursday, April 28th in Toronto. I'll get back to you soon with more details!
I'd love to hear your thoughts. Please post a comment below.
