Lately I have been going through many pictures from last year and all the memories connected to them because change finally came which made last year was very special. My life was turned upside down. The narrative I used to know was turned around and in the words of Kate Winslet in “The Holiday”: “I became the leading lady of my own story.” At least when it comes to love.
It was about two years ago and I was sitting on my green chair in my living room thinking about life. This question came up on the inside of me asking, “Are you willing to give it all up, the life you have created, your independence?” And boy oh boy was that a hard one to answer because I love being single. I love my independence, not having to ask anyone about anything and I love having time by myself.
Well, I made you a virtual cake we can have with our virtual coffee 😊 but really I just want to celebrate the journey so far.
This blog is turning 1 year today and it has been the most incredible year. It has pushed me to be creative. It has pushed me to be more vulnerable, to share my life and to let go of the lies that tell me I am not good enough.
I do not know where you stand on the “single spectrum”. Maybe you just got out of a relationship and are newly single, maybe you are single and ready to mingle or maybe you are single and dating. The fact is you are not married and this single life is here to be enjoyed.

Can we have a soul talk today? I just want to take today and raise a few questions. Is that ok with you?
Have you ever watched a romantic comedy, completely fallen in love with the male character and totally obsessed over the romance of that movie for weeks?
… me too.
I believe we are still single as long as we are not married which is why you should maximize your singleness. I am sharing a great sermon about this today and a few other cool things.
The other day somebody commented on a picture that Valentine’s Day is just like any other day and I have had many a conversation with other people about how useless Valentine’s Day is. But I believe Valentine’s Day is just a great opportunity to stop in our track and be reminded of how important another person is for us.
I honestly used to cry a lot on V-Day and I used to hate it until I made a choice.
