Every Wednesday we like to post an inspirational quote to help get you through to the weekend. Today we posted two quotes just in case you were having a rough week. Our words of wisdom relate directly to a lesser-known holiday, Singles Awareness Day.
This holiday is a response to the most romantic day of the year (arguably), Valentine’s Day. Celebrated on February 15, Singles Awareness Day is about not being in a relationship. Although the name may seem a bit SAD (pun intended), being single is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, being single is something to be celebrated. The quotes above are meant to remind you of just this.
If you are in the midst of a divorce, a new divorcee, or been divorced for a long time now, congratulations because you are no longer in the wrong relationship. Whether you have been single for years or are just reentering the single life, not being in a relationship means you can focus on yourself. Remember how you ex would never take you to any shows no matter how many times you asked? Now you can go yourself. Remember how you stopped fishing once you got married? Maybe it is time to get back to that forgotten hobby.
The great thing about being single is that you can put yourself first. You will become stronger and more independent. Not to mention you may pick up a few new skills along the way like cooking or fixing things around the house since your spouse is no longer there to do it for you.
Although spending Valentine’s Day without a significant other may be a bit of downer, use today to celebrate the perks of being single.
