Dear single lady,
Today I want to tell you a story and I hope that we all learn a bit from it.
I would have gotten married about 3years ago if I had agreed for a certain banker.
He was nice, kind and didn’t drink alcohol.
He said he liked me.
I was young, fresh, had a beautiful smile and a free spirit.
We met in a Bank.
He told me he wasn’t playing games, he didn’t want me for wanting sake, he wanted to settle down and even had plans to move into his own house, ofcourse with his wife – me(if I would agree)
I thought about it for a bit, I didn’t really pray about it because… well, because I didn’t really know that God was so interested in my marital story then.
But still, I said no, I felt like I still had a lot to know and learn in my single life and 3years later, I seeÂ that I was indeed right. I still have a lot to learn in this single life. God hasn’t released me into the next phase yet, He is still working in me and teaching me certain things.
What things you ask?
Well, He only showed me last year that every marriage is actually meant to show forth His purpose for both of the couples, #Ministry
He only just showed me that my relationship with my spouse is only a reflection of my marriage with Him.
And He is also just showing me that I don’t have to look all sunken and depressed because I don’t have a man.
I can learn from Him, build my character, develop myself, engage in things I love and milk dry this single phase of all He has for me.
Last year, I did this post where I talked about my visit to Olumo Rock.
It was a goal I had for myself for 2014 to go somewhere alone as a single lady and start seeing places.
Well, this year, it is also a goal but I took it a bit farther when I saw a post talking about how to travel in 2015.
I am taking a challenge of seeing 12 places I have never been to before in 2015.
One for each month and I am throwing it open to everyone of the single ladies who said that they “wished they could be that adventurous… Well, this is an opportunity for you to turn the “wishes” intoÂ “I can”.
You want to make something of your life as a single lady?
See places? Travel? Here is a chance for us to do it together.
Now, you don’t have to break a bank to do this, I googled Ekiti State where I am right now and saw close to 10 tourist centres.
Same with Ibadan that is close to me.
So if you don’t have too much, look around you where you are right now.
And some of us will say that we don’t have time but one day during the weekend in one month isn’t too much is it?
I thought to throw this open to us all.
I am going to do it and of course feature each of my trip on the blog.
If you want to share your trip and pictures with us here on the blog too, you are welcome, I will publish them.
The goal of this is to debunk every claim that a single lady must definitely be a miserable lady.
You don’t have to cry at the lack of a man in your life.
Let’s use this time for some things we can look back at and smile fondly at shall we?
Yes we can do it!
Give me a high five in the comment section below if you are in… 🙂
