Single and Slaying

I’m going to talk about single life, but probably not as you know it. I’m not going to say that I’m lonely and lost, or that I feel incomplete. I’m going to tell you that it’s okay to be single, that single life can be brilliant. You are allowed to enjoy being single.

I am in my third year of being a single pringle and from the moment that my last relationship ended I put my foot down and declared that never again would I date. Never again would I allow myself to be anything other than the best version of me. So far, nothing has changed my mind. If I compare the person I was in the wrong relationships to the person I am now I am utterly slaying it.

I’ve been through too much and gained so much strength that I don’t want to live it again… I don’t want to experience a bad relationship again. As Mum every single day is an adventure with Diego, it’s me and him vs the world. As an employee I work a job that I adore, and then we go home to our pets. Our family may be little but the members are precious.

It has taken hard work and dedication over the last couple of years to become the person I am, I have overcome anxiety and low self-esteem, and every new task that used to scare me is now a new opportunity to improve myself. I am ready to be a queen.
Besides, with the battles we face in life and the way we are forced to stand up again and again I think we deserve to wear that crown.

Single life isn’t always lonely, sometimes it’s about ruling your own kingdom. Step up, head high.
