Maira would always be neck deep in work. Juggling home, work and being a single parent was taking its toll on her. One weekend her parents made her see herself from a new perspective. She finally relaxed after a long time. And she even had time for a quick home facial !! (Prepared lovingly by her mother). Her son was on a fishing trip with her father. Her mother gifted her a body massage at the spa. Then they both had a heart to heart talk. Her mother explained these things her:
The Importance Of “Me time”
Taking out time for yourself is essential! You matter too. Beating yourself down is not going to help . It will only leave you more frustrated and bitter.
Don’t stay in the Guilt
We are humans. And to err is human. Because we all make mistakes. And sometimes that means trusting the wrong person too. It’s okay. Because the past is in the past. So try and look forward to the road ahead.
If you find someone
If you find someone to your liking, explore the possibility. Sometimes, you can have an instant connection. But sometimes it takes time. So go out and meet people. And if it works, it works. Otherwise there’s always a possibility of finding someone else. So don’t close any doors.
How much of yourself should you give?
If you have found someone, trust them, but wait a little time before sharing information about your child. It’s safer to go slow, until you are one hundred percent sure. Proceed with caution when dating.
Somedays you might feel that you won’t have time to breathe. Remember to breathe more freely, it’s nice to have someone else in your life too. With packed schedules today, it is a luxury to find time . But you have to. So plan an outing with friends. Or go out to the lounge for a drink. Maybe catch a movie. You need to feel alive again!
Staying positive achieves a lot of things in life. So if initially, you are not able to find someone to your liking . Don’t feel dejected . Keep meeting people! You never where you find someone more attuned to you .
Feel good factor
Take care of yourself. Shop! Enjoy! Wear your favorite colors and buy makeup. Dress up . Don’t let anything take that away from you. You deserve it.
Don’t let people’s opinions put you down. It’s very easy to judge another, when you haven’t been in their shoes. As the saying goes, “Walk a mile in my shoes, then judge me”. People have the audacity to judge but will never be there for you, when you need them.
Dating is an adventure. Adventures bring out the thrill in life . It’s exciting !! Exhilarating! Start the adventure. Because “somewhere someone is waiting for you”
Looking for someone exactly like you. Who knows even they might be searching for you right now?
So keep your search going.
All the best to the Gorgeous single moms out there !!! Keep the smile on and conquer!
