"Love has indeed become overrated in our society. I guess many of us singles are caught up in the hope of being found and finally letting go of the seemingly dreaded title of "Miss".
2010 was an interesting year as pertains to love. I attended the most weddings to last me a lifetime. Perhaps if there was a job for 'professional wedding attendee' then I would have scooped that award hands down. You would not be wrong to think that I attended the weddings in hope of meeting "the one". As is the norm in weddings when it was time to catch the bouquet I jumped at the opportunity hoping luck would be my portion. Well I obviously was elbowed away by others that were more determined.
The past year's events in the love arena have almost left me feeling underachieved. The irony is that in 2010 I achieved a lot pertaining to my life. Question is how do you explain your seemingly lateness in joining the marriage cruise that all seem to be boarding as though on cue. If you could only get that one person that will say the very words that will cause your heart to skip a beat and put a ring on your finger.
2010 was planned out and much as I didn’t attain that one thing, I look back and realize that perhaps waiting was my issue. I turned the dream of meeting Mr. Right to a nightmare because my mind was fixated on meeting him in 2010. I obviously want the redemption of having a man but what happens if he does not come when I want, of which he dint. I have heard repeatedly that being single is a gift. Honestly, I thought you gotta be kidding to say that. I let my single state rob me the joy of living a fulfilled life. I reevaluated my life and I’m glad that am Single, Smart and Beautiful.
While I wait for my Priest, I will make another's life better by giving of my time, resources and talents. I have this glow on my face and it’s not because I got a man, it is a glow of living my life to the fullest.
Yes I am in love,in love with my life and where am at.
Hello 2011 being single is not so bad after all!"
