When I hear a radio station play a promo bashing a rival station I immediately change to the other station. Just to prove (to no one but myself I guess) that it’s always better to take the high road.
I don’t own a smartphone and my cellphone’s memory fills up quickly. It takes everything within me to make myself delete unnecessary photos like ones I took of those adorable high heels I saw in a store or the really pretty mug of coffee I ordered.
Many simple things can completely change the mood of my day. Especially visually appealing things like pretty views/scenery. I always feel better after driving past a field where horses are galloping or seeing a plane fly overhead.
I cannot successfully get ready to go somewhere (hair, makeup) while I am engaging in conversation with a person who is with me. I get so distracted.
I am bothered by people who do not accurately credit borrowed quotes or photos to their authors.
"That awkward moment" hashtags compel me to confess my deepest, darkest and embarrassing awkward moments to the cyber world when I typically would not in other circumstances.
If a favorite song of mine comes on (the radio, in a restaurant/store) you better halt all conversation until it ends. I hate when people talk over great lyrics.
STOP treating single-ness as if it were a weakness to overcome or a disease to which the cure is “finding someone.” Whether you are a single young person or you’re the old lady at church trying to play match-maker for anyone over the age of 23, STOP.
Don’t see this time in life as merely a transition from one person to another. Being single is a time of empowerment and independence and discovery and possibility. If you are wasting this time of your life wishing it away for something that will “complete you,” chances are you will feel just as empty and unsatisfied after you receive that thing you spent so much time chasing.
The only thing that will make you content in life is learning to be content no matter the circumstance. It is a mentality that can be acquired. Start now. Then, who knows, down the road you might be surprised and swept off your feet by something wonderful.
