    Default A happy thread :)

    Hey all the single mamas and papas

    I just thought I would post a sunshine and flowers thread as in the past I feel like I was so upset and down on this whole single parenting gig.

    So I feel like I am now at a place that I never thought I would reach. I am HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY! I love that I am living on my own, without having to accommodate another adult. I love that I am getting out and living life. I feel like I had been living in a fog and I couldn't even see the mist until I was out of it!

    I have no desire whatsoever to hook up with anyone and I never thought that would be the case. I was frightened I might try to fill the void... but I have now been single for 4 months and I still don't feel that I want someone else in my life. I have great friends and a healthy social life and I actually shocked myself a while ago when I heard my own laughter! That's right - I laugh again

    My ex is still 'close friends' with my ex best friend, but I couldn't give a toss. I am happy regardless of what he is doing and I feel so invigorated to feel this way!

    Thanks for all of your support throughout my heartbreak and sorrow

    I'm bbbbaaaccckkkkkkkk !

    thats brilliant, good for you I think it s a healthy attitude and even though you will have your ups and downs, remaining positive will get you through it.
    I also reached that place a little while back, our lives are very different now, in a better way
    thanks for your happy post

    Your post made me feel really good and hopefully I will be at that place soon. I'm much happier now but in my case it is my EXH still causing many of the issues. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel though, whereas for a while there I never thought I would come out.

    It must be great to be standing on your own two feet

    Well I hope you get to that light soon It really is nice and so empowering to just be your own person and feel good. I am sure things will be great for you as well

    I'm at a happy place too! Frankly I think anyone would run a mile if EXDP tried to chat them up and then said he's got a 4 year old and he's only been single a month and due to have another baby in November but you know what? I DONT CARE! I'm meeting the woman he's moved in with on my terms! I messaged her and said I would like to meet you so I know you cause my child is going to be at your house and she said "I feel bad for the situation you and EXDP are in and I think you are so courageous doing it on your own and I admire your strength" So we are meeting some time this week! I feel good even though it's only been a month!

    That's awesome! I was this way once and I'm determined to get back there. I'm actually excited about getting back there. It's a great way to feel- invigorated to start each and every day. I see a little bit of myself coming back each and every day and I just can't wait to finally make that break in about 2 months time (given I save as much as I am hoping).

    Go and tackle each day and plan something amazing! An awesome dinner, a fun filled day out with a picnic at the park. A cheap train ride. Oh, I can't wait!!!
