You're Gonna Make It After All

Had coffee with a friend tonight. He pointed out something positive in my newly accepted "being aloneness"... There is a strength in being okay with being alone, and I am modeling this for Peanut. Leave it to Dean to show me a different way of looking at this.

I am more okay with being alone these days, though I do miss the connectedness that comes from being in a really good, loving relationship. I'll have that again, I know...but for now I'm okay.

Dean also decided I was the Mary Richards of 2011...or something like that.

So this is for all you "Mary's" out there:
"Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Who can take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it's you, girl and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it

Love is all around, no need to waste it
You can have the town - why don't you take it?
You're gonna make it after all
You're gonna make it after all"


  1. Hi! Just saw that you came over to follow me so thought I'd swing by and see what you are all about. Being alone is definitly ok. I don't know how new this concept is for you but believe me that it can be a lot of fun. Give yourself some time and hooking up with someone will just be easy! I will be following back. Know that I answer each comment on my blog by a return visit and comment to my viewers blogs. It takes up some time but well worth the effort!

  2. You rock Girlfriend. Yes, it is okay to be alone and yes, it is okay to not want to be that way forever. The best part about being alone is that you are there with yourself and YOU are a pretty cool person my friend!!

  3. Thank you both! Just what I needed.

  4. Hey you picked up some more people! Nice job! Thanks for swinging by and reading my nonsense today. My kid is a trip! Never know what is going to happen next.

  5. You are such a beautiful woman and sounds like a terrific mother! One day you are going to find a guy who treats you like you deserve. Now in the meantime go and buy a fantastic vibrator. The great thing about those is that you do not have to act like you are enjoying it!


  6. Thanks for your comment. I think I will do pretty good at it. I want to make more money than my ex so I can rub it in his face haha.. I know that is sooo wrong! But come on you giggled or at least smiled at that one!

  7. What a great post. This definitely shows your strength. I love your blog and am following.


  8. I see my neighbor and one of my best buds came over to see you. Elisabeth that is. lol She is a fantastic girl and she writes an amazing blog. If you get a chance make sure you check her out. Thanks for visiting me regularly! Have a great Sunday lady

  9. Now I'm all nostalgic for the Mary Tyler Moore show...
