Happy International Celebrate Being Single Day. Don’t forget to use #ICBSD in your Tweets and posts to show how happy you are being single and how you are celebrating it.
Today is about celebrating self-love and the freedom you have as a beautiful solo artist of life!
Watch the above video, with positive quotes about being single and being happy to be single, to inspire you to celebrate this joyous ‘Celebrate Being Single Day’ today.
As I told you in a previous post, today I am celebrating being single and self-love with a friend. We are going to the aquarium in a place called Plymouth in the UK and then for a meal in Nandos – which is a Portuguese style chicken restaurant chain! Although their first restaurant was in South Africa.
Here is a self-love video I created, don’t forget to subscribe for more inspiring quote videos!
International Celebrate Being Single Day is on Feb 14th, #ICBSD, and this year, for a change, I am celebrating being single, and self-love, with an asexual (asexual = absence of sexual attraction) guy friend. It will be a really different experience for me this year. As always, I go out and celebrate being single on International Celebrate Being Single Day (Feb 14th), and this year is no exception. I am going to go to the aquarium in Plymouth, then for a meal in Nandos, and invited a friend along who is also single and loves going to aquariums and for food in Nandos too. Yes, it is ironic we are both romantic asexuals, celebrating being single together, but just because you are single and celebrating that fact, does not mean you have to do that alone each year, you can hang out with friends and celebrate it together
I was in abusive relationships in the past and thankfully have been free of those for over 7 years now! I can say with my hand on my heart that I have never been happier as a single person compared to being in a relationship! If you have been in a similar situation this is one of my very favourite songs for empowering you to be a single person.
What are you up to for International Celebrate Being Single Day on Feb 14th? Or if you celebrate Valentine’s Day that day, what have you got planned?
Being redundant can really suck, but what is worse is being made redundant and feeling lost as a single person. But all is not lost. Being single can be beautiful and here are 7 steps you can take to become happy being single!
International Celebrate Being Single Day is just around the corner (Feb 14th), and having founded this special day for singles to celebrate being single, you may be asking yourself, just what is so great about being single. For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you may have seen my www.Twitter.com/quirkycoaching profile and thought, just what is #powerofone. Power Of One is a powerful online training and coaching programme that I am creating, to show you, just how to be single and be happy being single.
Since being predominantly single from November 5th, 2011, I began to challenge my mind about the way it thinks about being in a relationship and being single. I was in relationships with guys who were no good for me since 15 years of age – until 2011 – about 19 years of my life! With the largest period of being single in that time, just 6 months! 2 relationships I had were long term (not good for me) and lasted years. I wasn’t a happy person back then and had low self-esteem. I did not like being on my own because I felt alone and very lonely, I liked to be needed, wanted and loved, and felt I wanted someone there for me 24/7 as life would be boring on my own. I am also a very romantic person.
It is fine to want to be needed, wanted and loved – but what I have discovered is that you need to get these 3 things from yourself first and foremost; to be at one with your own soul – then you will you be happy and fulfilled as a single person and less likely to get into a relationship that is no good for you because you will not ‘need’ to be in a relationship. In fact, you may fill your own life with so much joy and happiness that being in a relationship no longer appeals to you. Either way, you will have unleashed your power of one and be on your way to being a super successful single sensation.
Step 1. You need to take stock of your life and realise that you have a problem being single and find out why that is.
Step 2. You need to be willing to have an open mind and accept you need to change in this respect.
Step 3. If you have been in relationships for most of your life, you need to give yourself some time to yourself and vow to do all you can to stay single for a set period of time – mine was a year; so I could have time to stop ‘needing’ someone. If on the other hand you have been single all your life and would like to be in a relationship but don’t know how to go about it, then you have some work to do on yourself to ensure you can be single and be happy – as well as work to do on your dating and relationship skills. You can still enjoy dating as a single person and it is good to see what is on offer from a variety of sources, rather than thinking one person is the only choice you have!
Step 4.You need to explore and find things to build your confidence and self-esteem, as well as discover ways to help you to be happy being single. This could include learning from books, articles, training courses, magazines, blogs, videos, audio books and podcasts, or through coaching and/or being mentored.
Step 5. You need to decide what ways you learn best – visual, auditory (listen), verbal, written, – so you can pick which learning method is best for you and implement it. If you don’t know which suits you best, try each out until you find which works best for you. Being happy to be single is a skill you need to master and maintain and you need to recognise this and accept it.
Step 6. Take massive action. You need to implement what you have learned, if you are not prepared to do this then you will stay stuck being single and unhappy – everyone has a choice regardless of their circumstances. If you have no money there is free to watch YouTube videos, blog posts and online articles to read. There is no excuse for not changing your life!
Step 7. Evaluate and monitor your progress via each learning method. If something doesn’t work, then try something else until you can honestly say you are happy being single.
