Two years ago I sat down with a mentor and asked her the question, “Why is there so little written to singles FROM singles?” I told her how much I looked up to her and respected what she had to say because she got married at 41, and is INCREDIBLE. I expressed with her my frustrations of talking to other friends and role models in my life about singleness and getting the response, “I know how you feel.” I was frustrated because simply, they don’t. In Texas, and in the community I’m surrounded by, so many people get married young, which is so great! But I wanted to hear more from other singles, or those who got married at a later age. My mentor then said, “Well, why don’t you do it?” And here we are.
This blog has been a dream of mine for a few years now, and I finally decided to take the plunge. I think the season of singleness, and discussion of how valuable and exciting this time can be is so important. My hope for this blog is to be a place that encourages singles to live purposeful, exciting and valuable lives, and to know that it’s not about waiting for what or who is next. This space is meant to encourage people to live their best single lives now.
Although singleness will be my main focus, you’ll also find other topics like travel, lifestyle, food and faith.
