Why I will remain single and happy in the coming year

If need be, I will stand alone in 2013.

We women must simply learn how to accept things. I don't mean wallow with reality and Ben & Jerry's; I'm tallin'bout looking at life -- all of it -- and decide what part of it do you wish to keep in 2012 and what need to come along for the ride into 2013. For me, it's the freedom of being single.

Now before I continue, there has been a lot of backlash as of late, about #teamsingle. Nobody around here is suggesting that we defy the Good Book and not be found by a "he". I just don't think God wants me to marry right now; clearly, I would have met Mr. Right-For-Real-This-Time by now.

Most women at 40 (I hit the milestone in about 30 days!) want to be settled, which is usually lonely speak for married, with children, white fence and a dawg. But I don't. There is a lot to be said for coming and going as you please, especially as a freelancer. Even the most secure man has a needy moment, but what if that moment doesn't align with my schedule? Hell, I want to receive calls at 10 am or pm, EST asking me to make plans to be in Miami in a few weeks, to do...what ever!

I want to be able to make sure my daughter is safe with her dad before I take off into the sunny (hopefully) skies, check into my hotel, and not check in with anyone, unless he or she is paying me to be out of town. I live for New York minutes, but I don't want to rush through my trip or through anything else for that matter, because "my maann" *insert neck roll* is waiting on me.

Likewise, I don't want to be on social media sharing updates about waiting for "my maann" *insert neck roll number two* to come home either. Sorry but that is pathetic.
And here is another reason why I lose FB friends.  Happy New Year to me!
