To my single friends…
(and if you’re not single I bet you know someone who is single who you can share this post with today)
This week we celebrate Thanksgiving. And then a few weeks after that is Christmas and a week later it’s New Year’s Eve. A trio of holidays that happen in a span of five weeks. A trio of holidays where it’s not always easy to be single.
These major holidays seem to be built better for pairs than for single people. You might be okay with being single ten months a year, but then November rolls around, and you’re no longer sure if it’s okay to be single and then you’re at holiday gatherings where you probably hear…
“Are you seeing anyone?”
“Oh, I’m sure your turn is next.”
“My cousin’s neighbor’s friend would be great for you.”
And you suddenly start to panic and wonder if it’s okay to be single.
So I wanted to share a little advice with you today…advice I learned last week in an unlikely place. During the winter season finale of Scandal, Olivia Pope told Jake…”I choose me…Right now I’m dancing…Now you can dance with me or you can get off my dance floor. I’m fine dancing alone.”
So get out there and be confident about dancing alone this holiday season!
