Hey love bugs!! This was just placed on my heart to share with those who are single. If you are anything like me, you may have moments that you struggle with the idea of being single. Maybe you wonder if you will EVER find the ONE…or will you remain single for the REST of your life…or maybe you struggle with loneliness…maybe you’re divorced or widowed and this new single life is foreign to you…I’m not sure where you are on the spectrum, but I encourage you to embrace this season!!
One thing that has helped me, and continues to help me, is that life still needs to be lived!! It is important that you don’t rush this season for there is much to gain and discover in it. It’s the perfect time to serve God and discover things about yourself that you never knew. Life still needs to be lived.
When I speak to singles in workshops or at conferences, I often ask: If you never get married or go on another date, what would you do? You can’t let life pass you by or miss out on opportunities/discoveries because you are so worked up in waiting for your mate to do things.
As I sit here right now on a deck of a restaurant overlooking a reservoir, sipping a cocktail, and watching the sunset and its reflection bouncing off the lake, I can’t help but to thank God that He has brought me to this place of contentment in my singleness. It’s okay to take yourself out! And while I’m on my date night, I discovered that I’m a cheap date because my dinner and beverage was less than $20!!!! Lol!
Seriously, enjoy this life you have…embrace the journey…and remember life still needs to be lived whether single or married!
