Single and Glowing

“You can not be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with”.  Dr. Wayne Dyer


Remember Elvis, the King, asking in a song:  “Are you lonely tonight?”
For many singles this is a very sensitive question. Too often, we who are single  fail  to take advantage of this stage of life, nor do we realize  that this status can be the most productive period of life when the focus is on personal growth and development.

More often than not, this phase of life is zoomed through while one wishes and hopes for marriage. Believe me, there is nothing wrong with marriage ; I have been there, and, had I focused more on pursuing my dreams and getting rid of more of  the  warts  in my life when I was single, I believe my marriage would have lasted more than seven years. I say this because  first, I would have married someone different, someone who had a lot more of my interests and values, and, I would have dated my prospective husband longer.
These three, I believe are still very important in selecting a husband or wife.

Singleness is such an adventurous time when we are experiencing life at every level, and as a result, we are also growing and glowing in all areas of life. As this happens, we automatically attract the people most like us in mind and spirit. Think about this the next time you find yourself alone on a weekend with the newspaper, the pet, and a pint of your favorite calories, I mean ice cream.

What to Do Next?

1. Ask yourself the hard question: Are you joyful and active while single?

2. Is there an area(s) of your life you need to tweak so that you become more like the person you desire to become?

3. Are you taking daily actions to improve this area (s) of your life?

4. Do you like yourself and where you are now?

Honest answers to these and other questions like them, can be invaluable in getting you to the point where you begin to see and like the many advantages you have being single, and when your status changes, you will take into your marriage the best You imaginable! Still lonely?
