As I’m scouring online, I’m reading all these negative posts about how hard it must be to be single around Valentine’s Day (aka Singles Awareness Day) and I won’t agree with that statement at all! I’m not going to say it’s my favorite holiday, but then again – it wasn’t my favorite holiday when I’ve been in serious relationships in the past. Sure, it’s nice to go out to a fancy dinner, have flowers delivered to the office and maybe a nice gift waiting for you when you get home! But in reality, I enjoy those things WAY more when it’s an unexpected surprise and not a Hallmark holiday.
I have never been the kind of person who is upset about where my life is….Am I 110% happy with where it is – ABSOLUTELY NOT, but I know very few people who are; and if I believe they are happy, I may have a false sense of reality. Let’s face it, the world is full of people posting everything happy about themselves (I know I’m guilty of it) and nothing of what’s actually troubling them – which we’d probably not want to see/read about anyway, but it gives the perception that everything is all sunshine and flowers.
I get the question A LOT, “Why are you still single?” and that’s a question I DESPISE!!! I don’t know, I don’t have an answer other than the fact I just haven’t met the right person. I have learned so much from all my past relationships that have helped me grow stronger and I have absolutely no regrets from any of them, but they just didn’t work out and I am fine with that. I have embraced my singledom and find it to be kind of fun/challenging. ☺️ Don’t get me wrong, I would much rather have someone to share life’s little adventures with me, but it is certainly not holding me back!
I enjoy the love surrounding Valentine’s Day and I am fortunate enough to have my family, friends and two lil ones that always get excited to see me walk through the door!
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
As a side note, I just found this article and think it speaks so clearly to me. I’m a Sagittarius and can’t agree more that I must take a solo road trip! This WILL be happening soon and I am really looking forward to it! 😊
And today is Ash Wednesday, I am a bad Catholic and haven’t been to mass since a friend’s wedding (does that even count?) but I always test my willpower during lent and this year I have given up two things that are definitely going to be challenging. WISH ME LUCK!
