Un-Alone With Stevie Nicks

un-aloneI’m Never Alone
Over the weekend, a girlfriend and I were talking about our single lives and she mentioned something about being alone and lonely.  My response to her was, while I may be alone, I don’t recall feeling lonely as of late.  After giving it further thought, I realize I’m never alone. God is always with me and he and I have a literal blast.  He tells me where to go, what to do, who to talk too and he’s always orchestrating divine meetings.

Divine Meeting
For example, Saturday I went to the spa alone but God orchestrated a divine meeting with Kim in the steam room.  We talked and ended up completing the rest of our spa day together then exchanging info to meet up for a yoga class when she gets back in town. Today I had a taste for The Veggie Grill.  After mulling over whether I should spend money or eat at home, I hopped in my car and spent the money.  God orchestrated yet another divine meeting with David, a virgin to The Veggie Grill.  He sat in the booth in front of me and we talked the whole time.  Once he was done eating, he joined me at my booth to continue our conversation.

Playing Matchmaker
David isn’t single but one of his closest friends is and he’s thinking of playing matchmaker.  After hearing a bit about his friend, I encouraged him to. He sounds like a wonderful human being as a matter of fact, I told David he sounds like my brother who is now resting in heaven.  I sure wouldn’t mind meeting a man like my brother.  That would be a divine gift!  We left the restaurant and he said, “That’s why I came here today.  To meet you and possibly introduce you to my friend.”  On my way home, I thanked God for my personality.  Instances like Kim and David happen 24/7.  My girlfriend said, “You don’t have time to be lonely.  You’re always out and about talking to people.”  I am.

Quite Content
After talking to her about our single lives, Philippians 4:10-14 came to mind.  The apostle Paul, who was single, was speaking in these verses and he said, “I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances.  I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little.  I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.”  Like Paul, I have learned to be content as a single woman and I know the recipe for being happy no matter the circumstance.

I Feel Very Un-Alone
Yesterday while scrolling through The Huffington Post website, I ran across a blurb by Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks.  In an interview with Vulture magazine she says, “Most women would not be happy being me.  People say, ‘But you’re alone.’ But I don’t feel alone. I feel very un-alone.  I feel very sparkly and excited about everything. I know women who are going, like, ‘I don’t want to grow old alone.’ And I’m like, ‘See, that doesn’t scare me.’ Because I’ll never be alone. I’ll always be surrounded by people.”  Exactly! There are over 7 billion people on the planet.  No one has to be alone unless they want to.

You do not have to be alone.  The world never inflicts loneliness upon us.  That is something we choose or reject by ourselves. ― Darren Shan

Something to think about…

What say you? How do you feel about your single life? Do you feel alone? Lonely? Are you content? For those of you in a relationship or married, how was your single life? Do you look back with fond memories?
