There are 25 things you should do when you’re single and in your thirties. If you want to see what they are and bypass my mini vent, then you can scroll down. I promise I won’t feel any type of way because your girl can talk.
I used to dread being single. I won’t lie, I wanted a husband, the dream wedding, a daughter I could dress up to look just like me, a dream home, and a chocolate poodle with a waggling tail named Choco-lit. I not only wanted those things but I wanted them like yesterday.
I used to sit around and wonder when my time would come. Like seriously, I was exhausted from being the bridesmaid and maid of honor, until I wasn’t.
Now don’t get me wrong, I still want these things, but in the midst of all my wanting, I’ve realized something.
I discovered that it wasn’t my time and that’s okay.
My singleness is a time to get to know myself. It is also an opportunity for me to date as many eligible bachelors as possible and discover what I want. But, that’s another blog for another day.
Let’s get to this list baby!
Instead of being a “Debbie Downer” about my singleness, I came up with this incredible list. It’s a list of a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but everything to do with living your best single life.
Use what you can girl but just do me a favor; promise me you’ll start enjoying your singleness.
