Alright friends – here’s what I need you to do. I need you to rock out this single thing. If right now you’re miserable in it, then I’m here to give you hope (hence the blog name) because well, I’ve been there – and I left. I don’t mean that I’ve left the season of single yet, but I’ve left the frustration and misery that focuses on why you don’t have something you want. I now have an understanding of the amazing gift that the season is. It’s a chance to pursue wholeness in an undistracted way which that looks very different from doing it when you are having to share your heart with someone else — and like most chances in life, you can take it or leave it.
I came from a divorced home and had a sheltered upbringing mainly because my mom wanted to protect me from what I eventually fell into anyways. I went to college and started looking for love in all the wrong places (sadly, literally). I then experienced the 180 degree about face that finding my faith brought and through my Christian walk, I have gone from too flirty to possibly not flirty enough, from a bad relationship to no relationship, but also experienced the amazing gift of going from guilt to grace. I have since fallen and gotten back up (on repeat), and now, at the age of 36, I have found peace and understanding of who I am, what I stand for, and the confidence to share it all with you.
I know for some of you my enthusiasm for the season will seem unrelatable, but trust me, for me it still ebbs and flows. However, I focus on the flowing but I write a lot about the ebbing because it’s real. I’m going to take you through all of the things I’ve learned (typically the hard way because well, why not) – but I want you to avoid the heartaches and wrong turns I’ve made because all of them leave consequences and baggage that will eventually have to be dealt with whether or not you choose to believe that.
So, let’s do this. If you want to really see if you relate to me, read my Intro: Season of Single. Then, keep reading. Subscribe to keep updated. Spread the word. Message me things you want to hear from me. Here’s how you can keep in touch:
