Im not sure about you, but as for me I find that sometimes its just soo much easier to express myself in english then in Swedish. And going to the US, I might as well practice - right? ;)
So, as this blogg started as a project not only to keep track of hopes and dreams but also to make them reality, here is a few thoughts about being a single lady of today.
💓 It's Time to Live Your Life!
Being single can be a wonderful thing, It's just the idea of being content with where you are in life. Being happy with what you have at this present moment.
💓 Don't put your identity in another person.
It's dangerous to tie your own identity so fiercely with another person because that's exactly what they are: a person. Avoid putting your whole identity in that. This choice can be spiritual, too. For example, if you are a Christian that means that you find your identity in God instead. This can make all the difference in the world when it comes to how you treat yourself.
💓 Take that trip you've been talking about.
Whether you want to explore a place that's 100 miles or 10,000 miles away – now is the time to do it. You don't need Mr. Right around to enjoy the beauty of the world.
💓 Spend time growing your confidence.
Do you want to finish school? Learn to play an instrument? Write a book? Take time to develop the goals you want to achieve. So enjoy this time of your life when you can do what YOU want to do!
💓 You have the right to be content. Right here. Right now.
Keeping your heart happy with what you have right now can make a big difference in how you live your life. Chances are if you are a happy person now, you will be a happy person when you are in a relationship. It's the idea of being happy with what you have. Work on the relationships you already have.
💓 Volunteer and give back.
You're free at the moment to go where you want, when you want. Check out the places where you can volunteer at an animal shelter or a soup kitchen (just to name a few).
💓 Focus on your career
Thinking of starting a business? Trying to work for that corner office? If you're single then you have a lot of time to devote to your job. Use the time you have right now to focus on that promotion.
💓 Work on the relationships you already have.
A kind heart is one that has been practicing love for a looong time! So is Mr. Right is the big relationship that you should focus tons of your attention on? Most of us have brothers, parents, friends, sisters, and coworkers surrounding us - and guess what - they want attention too. Focus on these relationships and find happiness in the people you already love and who loves you for who you are.
💓 Remember that you aren't alone.
You aren't the only one who might feel lonely every now and then. Don't dwell in your sorrows. Remember, you could be a role model to younger people just by the way you live your life.
💓 Know that confidence is attractive.
Men can be attracted to all different kinds of things in women. One of these attributes can be confidence. Men enjoy seeing a woman that is happy where she is and with what she's doing. So take care of yourself - You deserve to be happy - never forget that :)
💓 You can eat strange things for dinner.
Since you aren't cooking for anyone else it's time to fill your grocery cart with all of your favorite foods! Discover different things to eat – and be sure to cook whatever you like best.
💓 Girls' Night Out can be any night.
Which women have inspired you in your own life? Get to know them better! Enjoy your time of being with the girls. Your single years can be a great time with girlfriends that you might not have the chance to have again.
💓 There's no guarantee of finding Mr. Right - and that's okay.
Some people get married in life and some don't. That's just the way it is. But just remember to protect your own heart and happiness. There will be lonely and sad moments, but be careful not to dwell on them.
Get out there and celebrate today!
This is YOUR time and YOUR life to enjoy.
