I have never let being single get me down. One year I even celebrated with a quirky alone group! We all went downtown for dinner! Each personable quirky single person more than happy to live the solo lifestyle!
Often there is a stigma with not being paired up, but I find living a creative life takes so much time. It wouldn't be fair to pull another into that mix when all things creative take precedence! If the truth be told I rarely see a couple I'd want to be anyway!
I've been the envy of some married friends, yet being single is always a trade off. As enjoyable as not answering to another is, there can be fiscal challenges. Being resourceful and handy is imperative for a woman alone! When something goes wrong, you're on your own!
Some women are treated as a threat, ousted out of couples events. Not much of a man hunter I was never a threat. Fortunately I was still included with my married couples. However later in life there is never a shortage of single women to hang with. Having dabbled in the marriage scene with adverse affect they have no desire to pair up again!
So if you're newly single, dreading that day of love, do something kind for yourself....
Splurge on your favorite take out meal with some junk food in the mix!
Buy yourself your favorite flowers, a new lipstick, or a new cd.
Visit your favorite place in nature.
Buy a new book, a magazine, a new cozy pair of slippers.
Call another single friend to join you for a movie
Explore somewhere new in your city
Splurge on some fancy new art supplies...
Buy your favorite spirits, make a nice place setting and watch a movie.
What ever you do, don't fret without a partner.
Choose to make yourself happy first!...it's only a day...
it can be anything you choose it to be!
No matter what, love yourself the best way you know how,
because you're worth it!
Be proud of your choices, be proud of yourself!
What special thing will you do for Valentines day?
Happy paint party Friday and 29 faces .....I am on #11 only three behind.....
