On May 28th I turned 30 years old and I wasn’t really worried about it, I mean to be completely honest, most people don’t think I look 30 and I am so incredibly happy and excited about what I’m doing in my life right now, what do I have to worry about!?! But then it all began . . . the questions. . . “So are you seeing anyone?”. . . “Do you have a boyfriend?” . . . “Anyone special in your life?” . . .
At first my immediate answer was “No, not right now, no time, doing way too many fun things to stop and think about it!!” – said with enthusiasm, passion, and genuine excitement. But of course the human mind doesn’t let us just brush off those comments and move on to stay in our blissful state, my own mind turned against me?!!?! Ugh!!
So why don’t I have a boyfriend?
Is there something wrong with me?
Do I need to make more time for dating?
Am I not going to be completely fulfilled in my life, I mean everyone seems to think that’s the key to happiness?
What if I never meet someone who I want to make time for?
Will I ever meet the handsome, successful, smart, motivated, man who is my best friend?
Am I even happy?
And the list goes on, robbing me of my present happiness!!!! It has to stop!! But I can’t stop the beautiful engagement, pregnant belly, wedding, and baby pics that are now flooding my Facebook feed and reminding me of my present singleness (mind you I am incredibly excited for all of my amazing friends!!). So what is there to do!?!?!
I have to stop and check myself. . . . Life is amazing and I love every moment of it!! The time will come when I’m really ready to make a commitment to finding the man of my dreams, but it’s not right now and it is completely okay!
Will I get married? Yes!
Will I have a family and kids? Yes!
Does it have to be RIGHT NOW? No!
And I refuse to let it take away the fun, excitement and passion that is running through my life right now.
I am choosing to be satisfied, fulfilled, and happy, right now, the way things are! And keep living in the abundance of the love of my friends and family!
You can choose the life you live too! You’re not alone and you have what it takes! You are absolutely amazing, beautiful, and you are in the PERFECT place in your life, exactly the way it’s supposed to be! And if there is something that you want, that you don’t have YET, get it girl! Go after it! Because you absolutely deserve it!!
