Alone and Happy!

For the first time in a long time, I feel completely happy being single (well, except for when I have to answer those pesky “So, why are you still single” questions). Why? Because I actually want to be. I’m going through some changes in my life that require my full attention on myself and I really don’t need any distractions. I’m making a concerted effort to become the best version of myself, and that includes a “happy” me–and for that, I need to be content with where I am in life. So that’s where I’m going and I won’t let anyone stop me from reaching that place!

Sure, I’ve accomplished a lot by age 27, but there is so much more I want to do before all my “Me” time is taken away by some guy and/or my future family, etc. I’ve always heard married people or people in relationships talk about how much they miss the single life, and I think I finally understand why… Time. It’s priceless. And for now, it is ALL mine. I may as well take advantage while I still have it.

Life is such a balancing act. Before it gets even more complicated by adding a significant other to the equation, I want to make sure I’m more than okay with the various other facets of my life. Some of the things I’m working on include (but are not limited to): my confidence, my health–as you now know, and my career and finances. This list may sound small to begin with, but it’s quite a bit to take on at once, which is why I’m perfectly fine not meeting anyone at the moment.

It’s my time to shine and if that means I have to be selfish, then so be it! How do you juggle your responsibilities with your relationships? I’d love to hear it because someday I won’t be able to focus just on myself. I could use all the tips I can get.

  1. I think the key to juggling responsibilities with relationships is to have a network of friends, family, and possibly a significant other that not only make you want to be a better person, but enable and help you to do so. I don’t think having relationships, whether they be romantic or otherwise, hampers your ability to better yourself. While it’s important to have a good idea of who you are prior to entering in a romantic relationship, it helps to think of having a romantic relationship as a journey vs. a destination. Of course everyone will have their own opinion on this matter, but since you asked, that was mine! 😛

    I think it’s wonderful that you are embracing where you are in life right now! It’s easy to get caught up in the “grass is greener on the other side” rut. 😉

  2. I don’t think relationships hamper your ability to better yourself, but they do take time away from you. Thanks for your insight, though. I look up to your and Ronald’s marriage… one of the few happy couples I know! =)
