So, I recently found myself to be, err, suddenly single, and while there is absolutely nothing wrong with being single in your early thirties (or ever), I wanted to come up with a list of positives for those of you in the same boat who might need a bit of a pick me up whilst watching Bridget Jones’s Baby for the third time in a week *cue tumbleweed*.
Number 1, for most decisions you need not consult a single person if you so wish. That’s quite empowering, need a new kettle? Of course you can get the baby blue one, want to stay up until 2am dancing around to Queen Bey in a t shirt and pants? Do it! Need to cook dinner? Of course you can have Super Noodles again! *Other brands are available*.
Number 2, you can put yourself first. Work on yourself, health, quality time, hobbies that you put off whilst in a relationship so to not be unavailable to that person. Whatever your heart wants, indulge.
Number 3, you can travel to places you’ve always wanted to visit. Travelling alone is actually pretty awesome. You meet so many people doing the same thing and it’s all one huge adventure. Highly recommend.
Number 4, you get closer to your friends. Although it shouldn’t happen, when you’re in a relationship you can lose that closeness with your besties. Use this moment to put the time in re nurturing those friendships and even when you are no longer single make sure you maintain them this time!
Number 5, you can start a blog and spread happiness around like god damn confetti 🙂
Hit me up with your reasons why the single life is the good life!
