"Single During The Season"

Tis’ the season for couples to cozy up with one another, exchange gifts, and fall in love under the mistletoe. Awww, but for those of us who may not have that special someone to warm up to on theccse very cold nights, how do you keep from getting lonely? Long story short, I have no idea!

To be honest, I really haven’t been in the Christmas spirit this year. If it wasn’t for my daughter I probably would not have even put up a tree.  Although Christmas is not just about being with that special someone, I do long for the day when I will have a husband with whom I can form traditions with. I see people posting pictures of their families doing “Christmas stuff” and although I'm happy for them, that is something I would like as well.

I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels this way. In my case at least I have a little person in my life to make the season bright, as well as the rest of my family. Some people don’t have anyone in their life, let alone a significant other. This brings me to my conclusion and advice about being single during the season.

If you are single during this season, stop and take the time to reflect on yourself. Give thanks for all that you have and for what you have yet to receive. Whether you have yet to receive a special someone or maybe working on the relationship you already have, take time to look within yourself and give yourself a pat on the back for how far you have come.  You may not be where you want to be right now, but as long as you are putting in the work on yourself everything will fall into place. I know it may not seem like it, but trust me the universe have a way of working these things out.  The relationship you have with yourself and with God is the most important one. If you don’t have that I doubt any other relationship will to able to thrive. Even I have to remind myself of these things from time to time.
