Hello again Ladyloves! Let me ask you… Whoever said singleness was a gift?? I’ll tell ya… Anyone who’s been married! Haha!
Don’t get me wrong … I am happily married and love it. But once you’ve said “I Do” it’s easier to see the positive points about being single that you may have completely overlooked before.
Now I know 6 is an odd number (even though its kinda even too… um anyway) but, I had 5 and then I thought of another one! So, keep reading to check out the 6 things I find most awesome about being single!
1. You don’t have to answer to anyone else.
This one is huge! Marriage is what it is. In order to be happy, unified and productive you have to answer to one another. It’s a good thing. But, when you’re single you do as you want. You can go and come as you please. And that’s pretty awesome!
2. Plenty of time for YOU! This probably should have been number one.
Your time in life as a single woman is prime opportunity to get to know yourself, to better yourself, and to enjoy life your own way. It’s all about you. (Just don’t be selfish).
3. Your only responsibility is you.
You provide and take care of yourself. You don’t have to juggle the needs of another person.
4. You’re able to spend more time with God.
Before marriage and kids you have more free time. This is time you can and should use to grow your relationship with Christ. You can spend more time in prayer and bible study. Now, I still do these things as a wife and mother, but it can be difficult to make the time when so many other things are vying for my attention.
5. Yo’ money is yo’ money!
With my husband and I, all money is considered “ours.” When you’re single there’s only one hand reaching in your account. And that’s yours honey! You get to spend your money on just you and whatever it is you want. (But its right to be a giver too!).
6. The entire bed is all yours.
Although sharing isn’t bad, there’s nothing like having all that room to stretch out! Girl, go buy a king! And enjoy it!
I hope these 6 things have allowed you to see the value and fun in being single. Yes, marriage is beautiful but so is the single life. It’s what you make it! I know for some singles everyday is just a torturous wait for the man of your dreams… But you should be enjoying life to the fullest during this time. Besides, if you can’t make yourself happy then you won’t have what it takes to make another person happy either.
Until next time,
Go make life beautiful!
