Are you unhappily single?
For some that desire to be in a committed relationship or marriage, the single season of life can be difficult to navigate. It can be easy to slip into a pity party and spend your days sitting around the house watching reality TV! Luckily you don’t have to live like this!
Even while you are waiting for “Mr. Right” to knock on the door or for “Mr. Emotionally Unavailable” to finally commit you can still enjoy your single days. Here are a few tips on how you can start loving your single life now:
1. Fly Solo
Learn to DATE yourself. Schedule a date night with yourself at least once a month.
Get all dolled up and go check out the latest movie, museum exhibit or your favorite restaurant just like you would a real date. The more you go out alone, the more you will enjoy it.
If you don’t enjoy being with yourself, why would anyone else? Besides, you never know who you may encounter out and about!
2. Make new friends
Make sure you stay socially active by joining a local social club, meetup or professional organization.
This is a quick way to start filling up your social calendar with plays, festivals, networking events and travel.
3. Get Involved
Volunteering is a great way to serve and give back to the community. Think Creatively.
Do you love children? Find an after school program in need of a volunteer or tutor.
Makeup or hair stylist? The women at your local shelter would love a free makeover to lift their spirits!
Someone will be blessed by your kindness and willingness to sacrifice, which can be a very rewarding experience.
4. Pursue a passion
When you pursue your passions your life will become more enriching.
Most of us aren’t fortunate enough to work in a career that is our passion. Even if you do there are probably still other passions you have.
Now is a great time to start that business, take that cooking class, write that book or run that marathon with the free time you have.
Remember everything will all come together at the right time, with the right person.
Go out and live your best single life now!
