Society has the world programmed into thinking that in order to go out, you must be coupled up. True, the Bible says, ” It is not good for man to be alone,” but what do you do when you don’t have a boo? Everywhere you look, there are couples holding hands, laughing, sitting next to each other or kissing. There is no where to escape the fact that this is a couples world and when you’re single it could at times be quite overwhelming. Someimes a bit depressing.
But, be encouraged my single sisters and brothers. Just because that special someone is not in your life at the moment doesn’t mean you should stop living. Rather, realize that being single in only for a season. Everything has a season. At the proper time, the universe will connect you with your soul mate. But, in the meantime love on you!
Often times, I go on dates by myself. I use to think doing this was really weird, but once I started enjoying being with me, it became an awesome experience. Last night was one of those nights.
I got really cute, I even wore heels. (Something I rarely do.) But, this date was special. I was going out with someone special. I was going out with me. The date started with eating at a very nice seafood restaurant. The food was excellent! Afterwhich, a theater show. I so enjoyed my time with me. I was on time, I didn’t have to worry about who was going to pay, I laughed at all my funny thoughts, I opened my own door, looked at myself in the glass as I walked by and thought, “Now, that’s a FINE sista!” Finally, to get home without questioning about my where abouts. I put on my pj’s and snuggled in my bed. It was a great date. I’m actually looking forward to the next date with myself.
As a single person, I have learned to appreciate me. Love me for me and enjoy doing things for me. I refuse to put my life on hold because I currently don’t have a man in my life. I go where I want, do what I want, live how I want to live, drive what I want to drive and make all the decisions regarding my present and my future. I know who I am because I spend time with me. I appreciate me.
For all those who are single, I encourage you today to go on a date with yourself! Stop waiting to do things until you have a mate. Live your best life now! Your future partner will come in due season, but prepare yourself for their arrival by getting to know and loving you first.
