I've been happily single for a while now. Sure, as a mother, being single is not exactly ideal. However during this journey, I've found the good in waiting a substantial amount of time before entering a new relationship after my previous one ended. I personally waited a few years before even considering stepping into a new relationship.
Here's why I'm glad I waited. I've been able to find myself and grow into the woman I need to be for God, myself, my son and even my future hubby. I've learned so much more about myself, my value and self-worth. I've been able to figure out what I want in life for myself, what truly makes me happy & more importantly how to love myself.
I've done almost everything that I'll want to do with a partner, all alone and I'm pleased overall. From traveling, seeking God, learning new things, &accomplishing goals.
My relationship with God is top priority and my spiritual life has grown tremendously. I know that no one can express more love to me than God. He's been my main focus through every aspect of my life. That's essential being that I have a very bright, brilliant, rapidly growing child looking up to me.
Now when the right guy for me comes along I'll know all I have to offer in the relationship & how to love and support him after learning to love and support myself first. Whenever God agrees and send that special someone, I'll be ready :)
