The Journey of singleness is a gift, an adventure, turbulent and chaotic at times, heartbreaking and rewarding all wrapped in one big bow. Exploring who you are as an individual is really only possible to its fullest while single. How amazing that is! Of course, there were times when I felt like I was on the single journey way too long. But as I look back on my journey, there isn’t one thing I would change….the good, the bad and the ugly!
Every season of our lives has a reason, a story to tell, a lesson to be learned, an adventure to be had, a heart to mend and learn from. It’s life, and life is a continuous voyage into the next season. Today, single women are finally getting noticed for more than just being single. We’ve figured out that, although we are not married, we are strong and intelligent, make mistakes just like everyone else, date the wrong guys, own our very own companies, serve, are wonderful friends; we are on the journey just like the rest of the world.
Life goes by too fast and is too short to live in the future always thinking, “When this happens, life will be amazing.” The journey of life is every season and creates us into the woman we were created to be. Embrace it, love it, live it! I embrace my past, the lessons I learned, the friends I made and the escapades I experienced. There all “things” that made me who I am today…. they’re all a part of my journey. The Journey of singleness helped me identify who I was as a woman and who my husband fell in love with. It’s the journey that taught be how to be strong, confident, soft, loving, alive and worth the wait.
During this Christmas Season as I reflect on the years past, I’m thankful for all that God has given, brought and loved me through. It’s all set me on the journey to becoming the woman I was created to be and embracing who I am today. Single ladies, you are worth the wait! So embrace your journey, love it, live it!
Now, While You Are Single.
