I love this post. When will women understand that being single over 40, but also at any age, is empowering, enlightening, and an ecstatically awesome experience? The only ideas that make us miserable are the notions that we should be married and with child to be complete. Nonsense. We make ourselves complete by living full lives without men. I divorced at 38, and fell in love with my single lifestyle. I am now more in touch with myself, love my freedom, enjoy sex far more than when I was married, and am much more complete having had time to develop myself. The one lesson I learned was that it was marriage that lead me to forget who I am as a person, and that being a wife was the most disempowering role of my life.
I know some day I will be married again. But every woman needs to know the power of being single, in fact I now teach it in my workshops and courses.
xoxo to all the amazing, powerful, fearless, proud, unapologetic single ladies out there!
