Am a single mom and deal with life as it comes to me, like weeding a garden and been taught how to by two very huge influences in my life. Once I weed the issues I take time in my agenda to celebrate with sharing and caring for my daughter more freely and relaxed since she is my strength I easily overcome my stress. It helps when u have knowledge of what I hold very inmportant to me. It is what helps leaviate pain of having to suffer with singlehood. Its more tolerable than having a better half that don't know how to be there and always having to instruct on upkeep. I look at being strong willed and a survivor to marriage instead of sivorce. Have been divorced since 1998 and enjoy being a single parent and am allergic to males with much ego and can't find their own way throughout this life. New way found in order to prosper with less stress, and being able to cope a whole lot better that way. I watch movies, take leisire walks with daughter, that has a condition, I sew and enjoy thinking of how good it feels to be free of unwanted burdons that aren't able to get in my way any longer. It is weight off my back. Date in spare time and visit daughters with my youngest living at home still. It's quite a blessing I have to admit.Its a reward with efforts on trying to get my lifew back on track, and faster than the last move I had to encounter. Am very resourceful in taking charge in caring for my special needs daughter that makes me feel very loved and appreciated. That is why I find being a single parent has huge benefits.
