I know am not the only one confused about this whole love thing, all the expectations of what society is telling us, what I feel like I should be, and what I truly want. But Single and 35 doesn’t look so bad, I’m not gonna lie.
Sometimes I am envious of my married friends. They seem to have everything figured out. They have full time jobs, found love, and are starting their life with someone. I look at them and go “Wow look what you have created for yourself.” The love they share between them and their loved one seems amazing and seems like something I want. I get frustrated when I think about where I am at and what I am doing and my lack of love finding. I feel like I have to fit into this puzzle we call life perfectly….
But then I see video clips like this it inspires me and motivate me and makes me secure with exactly who I am and what I am doing. I blog. I blog a lot. In fact I have two blogs and this is just one of them. I coach for a community college and I love it. I am impacting the lives of many teenagers through the lenze of my sport. I work closely with a local non-profit assisting in the planning of their community events. I love what I do and I love who I am. Yes, I’m single and I rant and rave in my blog about the lack of men but I am happy. I worry about not being salaried at the age of 24 but I’m working two jobs I love and learning so much about myself and my passions not only through my work but also through my blogging adventures.
Sometimes I really do think about if what I want is just the pressures of society telling me to be a certain way or if what I want is what I have…
When you love and accept yourself totally the world around you changes. In the end happiness is a choice isn’t it?
