Putting the Happily in Ever After

I’ve really been paying attention to how most people tend to expect the worst and how some of the more positive and happy people I know either   1.  Actively look for the best or 2.  Just stay “open” and see what happens.  The polarity has been striking recently, so I’ll take that as a hint to see how I can make this work for ME.

For example: As a single woman, I have lots of choices in men and socializing right now, but my focus for this summer has been much more on family and home and on enjoying these last months of having both girls at home before they race off into the world.  Even the most interesting man can’t top that right now, and there’ll be plenty of time to get back to socializing again next month when the house empties a bit.

And that’s how I’m choosing to look at it.  I’m not in any rush; I’m just enjoying the journey.  Right now, I’m happily single and at some point soon, I’ll be happily in another relationship. The key word is happily.
