Do ya’ll ever wish God would just walk into your room and sit on your bed and just be like “okay so this is what you should do, this is who is going to walk into your life, etc.?” I know I have this issue.
Over time, I have realized that I tend to overthink things. A LOT of things. Pretty much my whole life at times (lol). I constantly wonder what decision I will make next and what special person will walk into my life. I would always wonder who would walk into my life next, and sometimes, the daydreaming would become exhausting. Overtime, I have just learned to forget waiting, and just embrace my season of singleness.
Being single has its perks and disadvantages; it always has not been easy or fun. There are some things that I loved about being someone’s companion and sometimes being single feels straight up lonely.
So whether you are now just entering this season, or you have been in it for a while, here are some things to remember and celebrate about embracing who you are.
DISCOVERING WHO YOU ARE IS EXHILARATING.
Relationships are about compromise. But you know what is most exciting? Being able to make all of your own decisions and discovering more about what makes you, you. This is your season of adventure. Enjoy it!
MORE SEASONS LIE AHEAD
I can remember when I had my first heartbreak. I came home from school in tears, the only thing my dad could think of was to give me a huge bowl of chocolate peanut butter ice-cream. I then spent hours crying on my bed or the kitchen floor just thinking, “why me? why wasn’t I good enough for him?” After a couple days of suffering, I can remember both of my parents giving me this piece of advice. They said to me “There will be more seasons amongst your life. You have the rest of your life to find a boyfriend.”
At the time, I didn’t take their advice wholeheartedly. It made me feel worse about myself. But after two years, I have realized that they are right. I shouldn't be looking and searching, and neither should you. Instead we should wait and trust God with our happily ever after because He has awesome plans for us all!
YOU ARE ALREADY ENOUGH
Whether we say it out loud or not, relationships have a tendency to boost our ego. Our companions constantly reminds us that we are beautiful, loved and cherished but the reality is, we already are all of those things. Most importantly because all of those things can be found in Jesus Christ.
You are loved more than you will ever know by someone who died to know you.
Singleness is a sweet, beautiful place that's intended to be cherished, appreciated, and fully taken advantage of. It’s our time to become a better person for ourselves and the people we’ll end up with someday. So embrace it.
Embrace being single: so what if you’re alone right now. Embrace it. Go get coffee alone. Shop alone. Drive alone. Watch movies alone. Binge watch Netflix alone. Get to know yourself. Nothing bad can come from whatever wave to self improvement you’re blessed with in the moment.
