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!
