So lately I’ve been pulled in about a million different directions and all at once. I’m a divorced single mom; I’m in the midst of finishing up Vol 3 of The Chocolate Chronicles (Chocolate Rau Câu – PUA War Games!); I’m still working at my day job full time; I’m working as an editor on a health app; and there have been a whole host of personal fires (crises – big and small from death, to health issues, to office politics, to other people’s divorces, etc.) for me, family and friends that I’ve been helping to work through as well.
What can I say, there’s just never a dull moment in my life. I guess people like me help to balance out the universe so it can be smooth sailing for other people? That or maybe other people are just more adept at multi-tasking a bunch of life changing events all at once?
Whatever the case may be, I’ve been fortunate to constantly be surrounded by supportive friends, loving family and the ability to live out my dream of writing and editing. Thank God for the things that go right in this life! You know, something has to actually go according to my life plan at least sometimes. 🙂
At any rate, I’ve really delved back into the dating scene (I took a little break to focus on self-improvement) in the last six months before and during the writing of my various books and I’ve gotta tell y’all, this is a lot of work! Sifting through and weeding out people that I know are not going to work in my life, trying to find someone who “gets” me, trying to make time to date with limited time to do so and working out babysitting availability and scheduling is something else.
Then of course, there are the prickly situations where for example, I’m not sure whether or not this one guy even likes me or if he’s just friendly. I don’t know about making the first move either ‘cause I don’t want to look foolish or offend him if I do. Or there’s the guy that I’ve been friends with for years, but is still recovering from a fairly messy and recent breakup. Not sure I want to get involved there because no one should want to be the “rebound chick.”
It’s all so frustrating, and well, distracting! I love guys and they’re so awesome. I just wish I could clone myself so someone else could handle all this dating stress and drama until I could find the right one. 🙂 Well, have a great weekend everyone and I’ll see you all back here soon.
