I am a huge fan of having friends, just wish I had more local friends to be with. My best friends are those I have met through this blog but I am slowly beginning to meet some new friends both male and female. I am thankful for all the old friends coming back into my life and the new ones I am meeting on a weekly basis!
When you are going through changes in your life it’s best to surround yourself with those you love or at least those you like. I ended up surrounding myself with my sister at first because she is a blast to be around! My sister has a lot of friends and more of a life than I do, you see I am Mom first and foremost so that means the three little munchkins keep this Mama pretty busy most days, but when the kids are gone on their weekend at Dad’s house I like to enjoy a few drinks, watch some movies and occasionally go out if at all possible.
That is where friends come into play, I get rather sad when Friday rolls around and I give hugs n kisses bye bye to my little ones just to find that everyone else is too busy to hang out with me. I slowly sink into a sad state of mind and wonder what in the world is wrong with me, why can’t I be so popular and then it clicks … I shouldn’t be sad about not having something to do on a Friday night, I haven’t gone out in over four years on a weekend because I was busy being wife and Mom. Now I am simply busy being Mom so much that Friday night shouldn’t be a debate over where I can go out to have some fun, it should be about sitting back and relaxing.
I plan to start taking more time for myself, truly thinking about what I want in my life and who I want to surround myself with. You see as a happy person who enjoys looking to the best of situations if I start surrounding myself with just anyone, then I could find myself back to drinking again, smoking too many cigarettes and in turn being exhausted all the time because I never focused on my health and well being! A person who is looking to remain positive about life and focus on the happiness that surrounds them needs to find like minded individuals to be around.
I am ready to start meeting more happy people, those who love to live life to the fullest and truly enjoy what they have in their world. We will always have a challenging situation in our lives, without them where would the adventure of life be? I think a life without challenges would be super boring and it would not satisfy a person like me. What type of life and fun events would keep you happy? Do you have friends you turn to when sad just because you know they will help lift you up?

I have a very few of those friends, why? I am the type you speak of that gets turned to, the one that lifts people up.
Spending time out as a family is my #1 happy time. We like trail walking, collecting interesting rocks from the beach taking rides down historical rustic roads (those are so neat & beautiful scenery)…we love the outdoors.
It does make me happy to hang out with the hubby for date night and hangout with a few friends when I can too.

it has been eons since I was single & at that stage, but that doesn’t mean I couldn’t use some more real friends! If you are in walking distance of shops or places to see, go take a walk on a nice day & if you see another person don’t be afraid to say hello, lovely day! never know where it could lead… also I know there used to be Single Parents groups that had meetings per say to meet people like yourself in a group situation that was safe.
And you always got us online friends 🙂
