I know what you’re thinking.
Single yet engaged?
Why did she name her blog that?
Is she single? Or is she engaged?
I’m glad you asked. Grab your coffee and sit a spell…
The first part is pretty self explanatory…I am single. I am a single girl in her mid (ahem, to late) thirties. And before you ask, no this is NOT what I had planned for my life at this age. I’ve never been married, no children…unless you count my cat, Snickers. He will make an appearance on here pretty often, I am sure.
And in my singleness, I hate to admit this, but since I will always aim to be transparent and truthful here at SYE…I have not been a very good steward of this gift and season I find myself in. I kind of found myself in some kind of marital status purgatory. I was in a holding place, and I didn’t really LIVE LIFE, because singleness paralyzed me many days. I hated going places alone, eating meals by myself got old, and let’s just be real…being the tag-a-long with your married friends just didn’t feel right.
But I don’t want that to be the case anymore. Although I am single in status, I want to choose to be engaged in this world.
Because there is so much WORLD out there.
