singleness of me

REAL LOVE...
  • Beats like a thousand drums: Taurus, Cancer, Pisces
  • Burns like the hottest sun: Aries, Leo, Libra
  • Hits me like a hurricane: Gemini, Sagittarius, Aquarius
  • Runs through my veins: Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn

I’ve been going through the motions lately and after a really hard break up I was left feeling so empty. I’ve been stuck in a toxic mindset that I need someone, but I only need myself. I know I deserve great things and I’m gonna keep grindin and doing me. I’m in such a better place in my life and I have countless reasons to smile. You have to be happy for you! So smile 😁 it’s contagious

The future I wanted two years ago: Stay at home mom, happily married with seven kids, living in a large house in the country with a whole awful lot of land, five horses and three cats

The future I want now: Freelance artist and published authour with another job on the side, single, living in a small studio apartment in the city with my one cat, close to friends

people say “if you don’t lower your standards, you’re gonna end up spending your whole life alone!” like being a healthy, happy, financially independent single adult is actually worse than being stuck in an abusive and/or emotionally unfulfilling relationship with someone who isn’t willing/able to meet your needs. like no offense, but I think I’m gonna choose to be happy rather than throwing myself into a relationship just for the sake of being in a relationship.
