Moving Inspiration: Sixty and Single in Seattle

I have big plans for the new year including a weekly "schedule" of posts. Every Monday I'll write about something or someone awesome in the world. If you've got something you'd like me to profile, please let me know in the comments or email me!

This month I'm exploring the adventure of moving -- it is terrifying, it is exhilarating, it is annoying and it is exhausting.

It takes courage to uproot yourself from where you've been planted and move. It takes gumption to start all over, especially in a big city.

Mary Davies has courage and gumption. At the age of 60, as a divorced single woman, she moved to Seattle, WA.

If she can do it, so can you!

I very much enjoy reading Mary's uplifting and articulate (she is a professional writer) blog.

Sometimes I get those external social signals which say: You're getting kind of old to be single. Maybe you should get married while you still have the chance. And then I start to think that maybe being single is only fun when you're young, and attractive, and can turn the heads of horny frat boys.

But Mary's blog reminds me that you can embrace singleness at any age and that you can find joy and freedom and adventure and beauty in single life no matter what. Being single is a big adventure and there is no reason to stop growing or get set in your ways if those ways don't suit you!

Read Sixty and Single in Seattle and tell me what you think!

I've been reading Mary's blog and I think you're right... it is inspirational to know at 60 you can be single and happy.

Where are you moving to??? And why?

Steve said...

Thanks for bringing Marys blog to my attention. I've just spent a bit of time reading her posts.

Where are you moving to and why?

Oh! I am NOT moving, just writing about it this month. I moved, solo, to this city 4 years ago and it was a life changing experience for me. I know I wouldn't be Singlutionary without that move or without the company of the people here. I wrote about it a little in my previous post.

Samantha and Steve: Thank you for reading and commenting! YAY!

Some one said, "I don't want to die alone" as a reason to get re-married at 60. Hog-wash. You are always available to be with others and to be alone...which is really how all of life seasons go. I love her site. I wish she'd read mine!

Thank you for sharing this with me. I loved it (and bookmarked it). One of the things I've been thinking a lot about lately is that there is no such thing as "too late". And now I have another great example.
