Spilling the tea on being single

So if anyone knows me well you know I’ve never had a serious boy situation in my life before. It’s not that I don’t want a relationship, in fact for the past few years of my life it was something I was desperately hoping for and wanting. Something I wanted so badly that I was pouring all my time and anxieties and extra time into thinking about. Spending so much useful time on something that clearly wasn’t meant to be.

In the past few months, I have poured myself into being creative with my social media and building close friendships in the city. Something I was desperately missing when I moved here a year and a half ago. To be honest it can be hard to just focus on myself at times but these past few months have been so rewarding in terms of growth for my blog and Instagram. I have ideas pouring out of me and not enough time in the day to spend creating it. I am so thankful for this period in my life of being single and content.

Being Content

Being content has been one of the biggest struggles, I have recently realized that nothing forced is worth the struggle and what is meant to be will be. It seems like such an easy concept but so difficult to accept on a day to day basis. It’s something I am constantly reminding myself to do. One quote that has really helped me is “remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck” I just love this quote and it is a great daily reminder for me.

Another thing I need to be reminded in this time is to not just wait around for things to happen. I need to really utilize the time I have and be really intentional in my choices. I need to stay motivated and do things. Doing things and being productive always makes me feel amazing even if I have trouble getting started. I feel keeping yourself busy with your passions can be a really good distraction. Especially if you begin to see success in your passions, it can feel even more gratifying than being in a relationship in my opinion.

My advice if you’re single, pursue your passions and goals in life and don’t look back. Everything that’s meant to happen will fall into place eventually. So I want to know, what passions are you pursuing in 2019? Leave me a comment, make me inspired!

XO,
