Get it? “One”derful.
As a single person, I know how this time of the year plays out. If you’re in a relationship, you may not quite know if you’re at the stage of gift exchanging. If your heading to the office Christmas party(where you can bring your mate), you may be fishing around to find a suitable date. If you are going to visit family, you trying to figure out a polite way to answer the ridiculous question of why you’re still single. Let’s not forget, New Year’s Eve is right around the corner. Who’s gonna kiss you at midnight? LOL!
I can laugh and joke about all of this now because I’ve matured. It hasn’t always been that way though. The ridiculous amount of time and energy spent wondering how all of this will play out to people who could really care less is no longer worth it. How many useless relationships have we held on to just for the sake of getting a gift for Christmas or having someone to go to a holiday party with? My relationship goals are much bigger.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, be content in this single season. When the time is right, Mr. or Ms. Right will show up. If you are out here trying to force a glass slipper to fit, you will be disappointed, hurting and ultimately still alone.
Being single is not a bad thing during the holidays. It’s a great time to focus on yourself and do things for others. Volunteer, donate your time, have fun and live on purpose. Heck, you can even travel solo somewhere. 😉
What are you doing with yourself during this holiday season?
