Far be it for me to complain: I am exactly the same size I was 25 years ago when I graduated from high school. Add to the fact that this size is in the, “single-digit zone” (okay, so I’m a size zero- hate me now or forever hold your peace!).  I have successfully run a business, have never frightened small children upon entering a room and can hold an intelligent conversation without prompting.

Somehow these attributes have not increased my chances of walking down the aisle.  “Those that can, do; those that can’t, plan” was my mantra way before J-Lo’s portrayal of a wedding planner on the big screen.  So in this age of over-analyzation, one might question why I have never married.  The answer is quite simple: I have yet to meet the man whose purpose is to be my life partner.  Now there were two that have come pretty close.  But unlike the diamonds they bought, their presence was not meant to last forever.

And here we are, at the height of another holiday season.  Singles know all too well the dance about to happen: the, “Don’t worry, he’s/she’s out there” from well-meaning family and friends to the, “You know as you get older, you have a better chance of being struck by lightening than get married?!” from mean-spirited folks. Luckily for me, lightening hasn’t swept me off my feet, either.

If your life has not led you down the formidable storybook road of marriage -complete with the three-bedroom, two-car garage tudor and honor roll children - be fulfilled in knowing that you are paving the way for your own unique destiny.

As for me, I have accepted the fact that I am single, but never solo.  At the perfect time, my soulmate will be revealed to me. But in the meantime, I will continue to enjoy the friends that life brings.  And while adjusting my rear-view mirror, reflecting on my prosperous journey should I happen to lock eyes with my future husband, it will be a beautiful thing...

But I can’t pull over now to wait and wonder.
