I happen to believe there are very good reasons to enjoy being single. Take it from the girl who has been proposed to, can rock “casual” like no one’s business, been in a serious relationship, done serial dating, and dabbled in the ever so popular millennial term, “hanging out”, being single is by far one of my favorite stages of a love life (aka no love life).
There are so many pros to living the single life, especially in your twenties. This is the time to, excuse my cliche, but really find yourself and have fun. While being a single millennial, you should be traveling the world, having fun one-night sexcapades, building your girl squad, working on your career, and of course, getting to truly figure out who you are and who you want to be. Coming up are 7 reasons to enjoy being single and how to truly “slay” them.
“Eat, Pray, Love” girls! But really, you’re going to wake up later on in life and regret not traveling. I am 100% someone who was not the adventurous type, but I also got tired of living vicariously through these amazing travel bloggers on social media. I kept seeing all these women travel to these beautiful places, solo or with friends, and thought to myself, “I wish I could do that!”. And so I did. Exploring the world is such an amazing way to really better yourself as a person. You become so much more of a strong independent woman, gain life experiences, and of course, score some epic social media photos.
One way to explore the world is getting involved in charity work. There are a large variety of charities across this planet ranging from big to small, but just to name a few; Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Turtle Teams Worldwide, United Nations Volunteers, The Greatness Foundation, and much more. Another opportunity is if you are in school and can travel abroad. Ask any student who did at least one semester abroad and they will tell you it was one of the best experiences they ever had.
You don’t even need to vacation somewhere for a long time. Just heading out of town for a weekend can be revolutionary. Go camp under the stars in Aspen, grab your girlfriends for a spa weekend getaway in Santa Barbara, drink your way through the underground speakeasies in San Francisco, or take a road trip down Route 66. For the more venturesome, plan a trip to hike Machu Picchu, climb the Great Wall of China, Surf Jeffrey’s Bay in South Africa, or go dive the Great Barrier Reef. The possibilities are endless!
