Single but grateful

7 Apr

When you’re single and you don’t want to be single, it’s easy to become a tad jaded, particularly when friends announce engagements, pregnancies or even romantic getaways with their partners. It can be hard to shift that feeling of despondency and remember that we are lucky. Things could be much worse. We could be living a few generations ago and be labelled as the ‘maiden aunt’ or the ‘spinster’. We could be living a few centuries ago and have no scope for independence. If worrying about being single is our biggest concern, we’re already living a blessed life.

Melina Schamroth of m.a.d. woman has launched a new campaign called Grateful in April. She wants us to remember that, although we’re single, we can still enjoy what we have. By signing up you’ll receive an inspiring tip for 30 days plus you’ll have the chance to receive a gift.

And here’s what I’m grateful for, our new WWWtK question:

Do you make less effort to chat with women because there are so many in Sydney that it’s now up to the women to make the effort?

Thank you to Dating Safaris for submitting this question!

    He Lucie,

    You reminded me … it’s what you make of it whatever the era … Google Isabella Bird. She was born in 1831 and just decided she was sick and tired of being a Victorian woman, sitting round tatting and having cups of tea. so rather than become the maiden aunt, she took herself off to remote Japan, travelling through extraordinarily rough terrain and loving it … all in her long skirts and hats. She did other travels too … I read her ‘Road Less Travelled’ and it’s fascinating …

    Keep on blogging!

      Hi BB,
      Oh what an inspiring Single Woman! Maybe I need a new feature called Single Woman of the Month! Thanks for introducing me to Ms Bird. She’s going to be my new heroine.
      Hey our blogging anniversary is coming up. Happy anniversary!
