As a certified Single Gal in the Big City, here are proven ways to keep your life happy and joyous as you journey through life being the wonderful single human you could ever be:
1. Me Time: Get to know yourself better to reach your full potential
Being single means more time to being the best you can be! But first, you need to figure out who you are and what it is that you really want in life. Then learn some ways to inject optimism into your life because the perks of positivity definitely outweigh the coolness of being moody and depressed. If you have just gotten out of a relationship and starting fresh, feeling afraid of the unfamiliar is normal – it’s part of our survival instinct – but don’t let that fear keep you from moving forward. No matter what happens in your life, don’t forget you can always be a true leading lady. Allow yourself to dream big because you have the power to achieve your goals! You call the shots remember that!
2. Happy Home: Learn the value of bonding with your parents and siblings
As my dad would say, “no man is an island.” You start life with islands surrounding you to help you when you were born and these are your family members. These people are what you can count on the most and you should always remember that. Realizing how important these people are in your life can make you feel secured and loved as you grow into a well-adjusted adult. Sure sometimes they can be annoying with their rules and regulations, especially from your parents, but you have to realize that they do it for your sake as well to help you become a more stable adult later on. Communication is key and don’t forget to tell them you love them everyday.
3. Strong Mind: Sharpen your skills and improve yourself at work or in school
You may think you’re already smart enough and competent enough because you graduated or are starting a job soon, but that’s actually just the beginning. Or if you’re still at school you may also think that because you learn in the classroom there are things you don’t have to study in the library to enhance your knowledge as well. Well, to be honest here are different kinds of intelligence. Some are gifted to excel academically while others are good at dealing with practicality and are creative. Find out what your strengths are and use it to develop a strong mind. You may need it later on in life when you upgrade or level up for that promotion or award you really want so it is important to also hone your skills.
4. Best friends: Be a good friend an reap rewards of strong bonds
What is life without friends? It’s dull and gray if you ask me. Friends brighten your life in so many ways. They listen to your concerns, share your interests, and help you deal with problems. They accept you for who you are while encouraging you to be the best version of yourself. Find out what role your best pals play in your life and see how you can be a better friend to them. Be there when they need you the most and if there are hurdles in your friendship, the best way to do it is to exercise patience and understanding. Make strong bonds by going on adventures and basically letting them know you’re there for them. Some friends you might just meet for a while and some you may become friends for years. Either way hold them close in your heart because a journey through life with friends is so much sweeter than going through it alone.
5. Caring heart: Give back and make a difference in your own small way
So you’ve made time for yourself, what’s next? It’s time to give back. For me what I do is try as much as to give people advices through my social media sites. How about you? If you have something that’s tugging in your heart to do like loving your country, fight for your land, care for people, choose a fulfilling cause and passionately pursue it. You’re young and single and have time on your hands! Use your youth to inspire others as what I am trying to do as well.
Bonus: Falling in love
So you’ve fallen in love after years and years of being single. It’s okay! Falling in love is one of the best feelings in the world. You’re excited, giddy, and frantic at the same time but it all doesn’t matter because you’ve found someone who connects with you in another level and finds you the most amazing person they’ve known. But before you take the plunge, find out first if you’re really ready for a relationship and if what you’re feeling is True Love. Take time to understand the other person, be friends with them first then decide if you want to be lovers. You might meet a lot of wrong persons before you meet the right one but consider them as lessons and steps closer to your one true love. It will be all worth it in the end.
And always, always remember that if you ever feel lonely or depressed that you’re single. DON’T! Remember YOU are LOVED by the ALMIGHTY GOD and is His CHILD and you deserve all the happiness in the world. I know I do, that’s why I have this burning fire in me. 🙂 ❤
So there you have it, here are 5 steps (plus a bonus point when you decide to take it to the another level) of being single in my book. Note that these concepts are not entirely of my own some are taken out of other articles as well so definitely these are legit advices. Hope you like it!
