Time For Me
I've always been extremely shy, and though for some reason I come off as a people person, I'm not. I'm very shy inside. However, one of the many blessings of my job is that I work with 32 wonderful women who are warm, friendly and for whatever reason, seem to like me. It's like I have a large extended family. Now, I've been there for 3 months (My 90 day probation period has come and gone. Yay, they're keeping me!!) and on my wall is at least half a dozen pictures of my boys. So,by now, they all know my kid's stories and the story of my divorce. They've been inviting me to parties, wanting to sit me up with eligible friends, invite the kids and I to their lake houses or to go 4 wheeling with their families. I'm loving this. I've agreed to and have gone out a little, I'm looking forward to the boys and I getting together with some of their families, and I am so enjoying being single again.
For as long as I can remember, my focus has been on the kids. That has paid off, I've got great kids and I'm so thankful for the men they are and are still becoming. Now I'm able to take some me time. There is a time for everything...and though I have no interest in ever adapting the 'it's all about me' mind set ( because, let's face it, my kids have seen one parent do that and they'll not see another one ever be that selfish), I am beginning to take some time for myself and to be completely honest, I'm enjoying it.
Maybe it's the beginning of 'my' time.
