I realized last year that there are lots of things I don’t do because I don’t have a boyfriend. As a self described “permanently single” person that’s a big problem! I can’t control when I’ll meet the right guy for me, but I can control how I enjoy my life. I decided to see the positive in having complete freedom over my life and embrace adventures on my own. One of my goals this year is to travel abroad alone! I never thought that would be something I’d do, but I’m in a place that I think it would be really a beneficial, growing experience for me.
I have no idea where I’ll go and honestly the idea scares me. I practiced a little last year when I took a day trip to Chicago (shout out to Spirit’s crazy Black Friday deals!). I planned out all the places I wanted to visit before hand. I knew how long I would spend at each place, how much the uber would be and what I had to take photos of. It was an amazing day and most importantly I didn’t feel sad about being alone at all.
I think when I look back on myself 10 years from now- no matter my relationship status- I’ll be sad about the experiences I didn’t have, not the amazing adventures I had on my own.
