With your new single status and fresh enthusiasm for being ‘whoever you want to be’, try not to be too much all at once. While it’s a really positive sign that you’re focussing on moving forward with your life, and being pro-active regarding your new social life, additional work commitments, recently acquired hobbies and so forth, do bear in mind that there is still only ONE of you and unless you have a time machine stashed away in your loft there are STILL only 24 hours in any given day.
Just because you made a ‘to do’ list it doesn’t mean that you have to ‘do’ it all at once, no matter how much you want to. Try to reign it in a little and actually enjoy yourself rather than indulging in some manic, whirlwind of activities that can only realistically end with you holed up in bed suffering from exhaustion a couple of months down the line.
I know it’s all new and scary and exciting and that once you get to a certain age, when you have more birthdays behind you than potentially ahead of you, it’s tempting to make the most of every second of every minute, of every hour…. But do try to take a moment or two out of your jam-packed schedule to savour these new experiences. You’ll get far more pleasure out of it if you do.
