Relationship Status: Single and I’m Okay With It and You Should Be Too

I’m SO passionate on the topic of “single girl swag”.

I’m single. I’m happy and there’s nothing weird about it! Glad I got that over with.

Now, onto the good stuff.

It’s odd to me that in today’s world with constant change, there are some people who still conform to a traditional mindset that a woman at my age of 25, should be engaged, married or have a baby on the way.

I think every woman has the right to steer her ship in whichever direction and pace she chooses.

Since I have been a child, I have always been incredibly independent, and I have always done things on my own time…ask my parents! They WILL agree!

I’m an only child and I’m use to things rolling at my pace. I have never craved the need to constantly be around a group of people and I enjoy my quiet time.

I always say, “my time, my way, my life!”

I love whenever I go home for the weekend or a holiday and go to the grocery store with my mom. I always meet up with a friendly, familiar face and the conversation usually goes like this…”Still not married?” “dating anyone?” Who’s your boyfriend?”

I know I’m not the only one who has experienced this!

I’m aware that people want me to be happy and they think this involves a guy in my life who will sweep me off my feet.

I am so appreciative for all of the people in my life who just want me to be undeniably happy, but the truth is that I am happy.

I am so unbelievably happy with life that I often feel undeserving of this overwhelming happiness.

I have worked my tail off for 7 years educating myself to prepare me for a job in a field I am passionate about. I landed a job, my dream job, right out of grad school and have managed to turn my passion for writing into a successful hobby.

What more can a girl ask for? A husband? A house? Kids?

Don’t get me wrong…that will come at some point down the line, but I’m in no rush.

What I wish most is that others would be open to viewing happiness from a different perspective.

You see, right now at this point in my life, I feel most fulfilled by personal success and accomplishments. I wake up each day with the mindset that I will do good and be good at whatever I do.

Most importantly, I want to be an example for those women out there who are just like me.

You are hearing it from me, you don’t have to conform to others’ opinions and views of happiness.

The most important happiness is with yourself.

I’ve got one shot to get this whole “life thing” right and the truth is, I want to get it right the first time and I’m willing to wait until that special guy comes along, no matter how long it takes, that will make me want to change my relationship status on Facebook from single to “in a relationship.”

All kidding aside, for now, my goals and aspirations are center stage and the spotlight is shining bright on my future…without a guy and that is okay!
