Becoming the best version of yourself

It’s the Weekend! Yay!! Or Boo??

on February 25, 2012

I used to look forward to the weekends, it meant that there was something fun and exciting that we would be doing.  Notice I said “we” – because when I was married, we did a lot of really fun things.  We were with our friends for dinner, or an event.  We hosted parties, we attended parties.   We went to our sons’ games, had their friends over, had our friends over, went over to our friends.  We saw movies, tried new restaurants, made short trips over long weekends.  We tackled home projects, curled up on the sofa with a new book, watched videos.  We did “something”.  Granted, most Saturdays and Sundays started with him going to the “office” for work, but we tried to do fun things at night.  After the kid’s were older and in college, we tried new restaurants  – we were active.

Once you’re divorced, you learn a very powerful yet sad lesson.  This world is a world of “couples”.  You were invited to things all the time as a “couple”.  When you are no longer a “couple” – those invitations disappear.  You become the “11th” person at a table for ten.  You become inconvenient.  You become a “threat” to all married women when you are single and available.  The thought of going after another woman’s husband would NEVER hit my mind, especially after what happened to me, but as sad as that thought is, I get it.  I don’t like it, but I get it.

So what are you doing this weekend??  After a week full of DVR’d TV programs, I”m trying to find something to go out and do tonight, to be around people.  Because being at home alone again just sux!!  What do you do??
