Nooooooooo I am not talking about a list to Santa Claus........
I am talking about a comment mini me left on yesterday's blog Turning Corners........ she said:
"Since August you have made many large leaps. You should start a list of
them, beginning with when you decided it was time to move. I will add
the things you might miss "
It was a cute comment and I smiled and moved on - not giving it much thought.
But this morning I had a small problem with my mouse (the left click button didn't work) and I managed to fix it. I sat back smiling....... and then I realized how many minor problems I have solved all by myself...... from the DVD player that didn't work - to my phone that wouldn't dial out - to the fire in my living room base board heater.
I have driven alone long distances to unknown cities and didn't die doing it.... I have managed to drive in the dark .. I have gone to munches by myself ... I have taken responsibility for my weight - for what I eat or don't eat - I am feeding myself food I actually like - I faced my cancer test by myself and survived it - I have had my car's emission test done - finding a garage that would do it - I am learning it is ok to decide to do things any time I want to do them -
I am learning to live alone - and LOVE it !!
And it's interesting to me - when my therapist told me that it was too soon to find someone to share my bed - or my life - it was freeing. I like - really LIKE - being alone. And it was like she gave me permission to enjoy this part of my life.
I am gonna keep adding to this list of things I have accomplished on my own! I am gonna keep a list of the joys of living alone. I am gonna be proud of who I am becoming............. cause I think I really truly like this person !
