Earlier this week I did a quick post on how being single can be sexy. This week
I've had a lot of interaction with my divorce clients and there was so much
heaviness around starting over. I just feel like I need to bring a little levity to the discussion. Trust me, I don't take divorce lightly, but there is always a silver
Let's face it, being single can be tough. You're constantly bombarded with
images of happy couples in love, and it can be hard to feel sexy when you're
flying solo. But believe it or not, there are some upsides to being single. In fact,
being single can be downright sexy! Here's why:
You're Free to Do You
One of the best things about being single is that you're free to do whatever you
want, without having to answer to anyone else. If you want to stay in bed all day and binge-watch Netflix, you can do that! If you want to go out on a spontaneous road trip, you can do that, too. When you're single, you don't have to worry about what someone else wants or needs – you can just focus on yourself. And that can be pretty empowering.
You Can Be More Spontaneous
If there's one thing that most people crave, it's spontaneity. And when you're
single, spontaneity is your middle name! Since you don't have to check in with
anyone or make sure that your plans align with someone else's schedule, you
can pretty much do whatever you want, whenever you want. That means more
impromptu trips, spur-of-the-moment get-togethers with friends, and overall a lot less planning and a lot more living in the moment. And who doesn't love that?
You Get Me Time...a Lot of Me Time
Whether we like it or not, we all need some time alone every now and then. And when you're single, me time is basically built into your schedule. Whether it's taking a long bath, reading your favorite book cover to cover, or just taking a leisurely stroll through the park by yourself, alone time is an important part of self-care – and when you're single, you've got plenty of it! If you have children, hopefully you have a good parenting plan in place so that you get some time to yourself. If you don't, make sure you give me a call.
So there you have it. Who knows, maybe being single is exactly what you need
right now. Embrace your independence and enjoy all the perks that come along
