Being Alone


I’m an introvert.  Big surprise, right?  I need my down time and quiet time to recharge.  I think that’s why I’m still single.  I push men away if they demand too much from me.  I’m alone a lot of the time and most of the time I don’t mind it at all.  I’m not lonely except on rare occasions.

I think about dating again once in a while and then I think, “why bother?”  I know how it will end.  I’ll push him away, we’ll both be hurt and I’ll be alone again.

I’ve gotten so that I don’t know how to do anything else other than what I’m doing.  I’ve looked back and I’ve always said that I didn’t want to be alone.  But that’s exactly the path I’ve chosen.

R – Reflection


Quiet

R – Reflection

The last few years have given me reason to pause and reflect on my life and the direction I’m headed.  My life is SO different now than what it was just a few years ago.  In a good way.

I’m also getting older, which certainly beats the alternative!  This has made me think about my future as well.

Man, I never thought I would live this long!  Like they say, I would have taken better care of myself!  I’m pretty lucky in that regard.  I’m in very good health.  A few aches & pains.  But we all have those, right?

For the first time in my life, I am putting my future needs number 1.  I think that in the past, I had a “what will be will be” kind of outlook.   Now, I realize that I have the ability to make a positive difference in my future.

So I’m getting my ducks in a row.  It will take a couple of years, to get where I need to be.  It feels really good to have a Direction, an Outline, a Path!!
