I have a lot to be thankful for. No doubt about that. No list today.
AND I’m single. And 39. And that’s one of things I’m thankful for.
Because the life I’m leading right now: starting over in my late 30s with a new career, meeting new people and being more social than I’ve been in years, that’s all connected to my being single. And none of it would be happening if I wasn’t right where I am. Single. Living my life. In this time and place.
Frequent readers of this blog have heard me use the phrase, “I don’t believe in much”, on several occasions. And it’s true. I am a firm disbeliever in most things. But here’s one big thing I believe in: It all works out in the end. If it hasn’t worked out, it’s not the end.
My story, the story of me and dating and relationships, it’s nowhere near the end. Now, I have no idea how it’s going to end. Maybe the end looks a lot like now (me being single). Or maybe it looks a lot different in some way that I can’t possibly imagine. But I’m not going to know until I get there.
The point is, I’m thankful for the life I have now. Truly thankful.
