I know it has been a while since my last entry – work, illness, business, etc. I am going to have start turning down invites, it is not that I am jealous of them on the contrary but I am just a bit tired of hanging around 20 somethings whose eyes are constantly hovering round for a potential spouse, or the fact that they seem to take offence when older ones like me are seated at the same table as they are. FYI, I don’t exactly like it myself but if that is where I have ‘placed’ there can do anything about it. Or having to look round for people my own age to sit /chat to. Ok I am not saying all 20 somethings are the same but majority of the ones I meet at weddings are. Compared to some of the ones I hang out these ones are so childish!
Moving on, I am making the best of this lovely winter – socialising with friends or on my own, making jewellery in the park. As I have always said, don’t wait for people, you can enjoy life on your own. If someone stands you up, don’t stay indoors mopping, have a plan B, get out and do what ever it was on your own – depends on what it is, eating alone in the restaurant may not be comfortable for some. Even I know my limits, I can do lunch in a cafe with my Kindle but not dinner in a restaurant. I will just go and watch a film or play instead, you have to be quiet for that so no worries. All I am saying, don’t let life pass you by, you don’t want to end up years down with regrets. For me I am so glad I took the plunge to go on holiday on my own all those years agao, I did go with a Christian group where I made friends but I have also had holidays in the UK where it has been just me. I love exploring so it is not a problem, if people don’t speak to me fine or if I get looks cos I am a black woman on her own, tough but I am determined to enjoy myself cos I worked hard for the money and deserve to spend it however, I like!!
I hope the sun is shining where you are, if not, Thank God that you are alive, seize and enjoy every moment, put another way carp diem.
God bless always,
