You love having flexibility in all areas of your life, and it sounds like a perfect fit, since you have a crazy schedule. So you set up an appointment to take a tour to see what machines and other fitness classes they have to offer. You think to yourself, “I might as well check out the singles while I’m at it too.” You’ve got to be efficient with your time and a little eye candy never hurt anyone. Living with passion is one way to be single and happy.

You push open the big glass doors and the cute woman at the front desk greets you with a smile. She’s also wearing a big diamond ring, and it’s so pretty. You comment on how beautiful and sparkly it is and she talks about her wonderful husband. She asks where your hubby is, and you tell her you are single. She looks at you and laments, “Oh honey, I’m so sorry… you’re single.”

Wa wa wa wa… You swear you can hear the tiny violin pity-party concerto creeping out from inside the free weight room. So that’s where they hide all the single cute men.

Paaaaleeease! Put the bows away maestro, it’s time to get your band back together and it’s time to get you back together. Being single can be incredibly amazing if you learn to have fun and dance to your own music.

There are a few simple things you can do to be happy while you’re on your journey to a partner that is the perfect fit for you:

So get out the steel drums, and your island dress because it’s time to calypso!

1. Appreciate being single

Yes! When you are single you have so much freedom to live your life exactly how you choose. You can drink straight out of the fresh squeezed organic OJ container with no complaints from anyone, and no alarm clock waking you up before you have to get up for work, and listen to your favorite album five times in a row if you feel like it. Although there might be a man out there somewhere who really appreciate the Indigo Girls on repeat.

2. Bask in the feelings of love (even if it is through the eyes of someone else)

door to love
When you see a happy couple, don’t be jealous of what they share. Feel the love between them. This love is inside of you too; you just have to learn how to tap into it. Just because you don’t have a partner right this very second, doesn’t mean he or she isn’t right around the corner. Your partner just happens to be getting ready for you right this very minute.

3. Get in touch with yourself

Figure out what makes you happy, and then do it! Make sure you take time out of every day to take care of yourself and do something that makes you feel really good. These can be things that you can do at home for free. Meditate, laugh watching the Ellen DeGeneres show, (she likes meditation too), paint your nails, dance to your favorite band while you fold towels, take a salt bath (this will also help release negative energy in your aura), or drink some herbal tea while you watch the sunrise.

Do things that are good for you. 

Because when you give yourself love you will attract more love into your life.

This love is found everywhere, in nature and inside of yourself. Love is all around, and you will notice this love if only you are aware.

Tap into your heart and listen to what it has to say. Even if you feel sad, (and sometimes you will), I promise those feelings won’t last forever. Everything is in perfect balance and when there is sadness, happiness must follow. When you tap into the love that is inside of you, the backup band will play the music that makes your heart sing. Be brave. Dance like no one is watching and always love yourself.
