The Bright Side of Singleness

In Advice and Encouragement, Single by Debra Fileta

Welcome to‘s #TheSingleLife blog series!

I am SO pumped about all the great content and guest posts we have coming your way as we dig deep into this important conversation about #TheSingleLife. 

With more singles than ever before in our nation, it’s about time we took this topic seriously and offered some different perspectives.

I wanted to start this series looking at the Bright Side of Singleness…because we’re going to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly coming up, so it’s important to have a balanced conversation along the way.

So for this first post, I believe that there is no one BETTER or MORE QUALIFIED to write this article than….YOU. My single readers! I love and appreciate your insight so much, and I know you have so much wisdom to encourage each other on this journey.

So let’s tribute this post to the bright side.

The truth is, in life  we always have two options: to look on the bright side, or to look on the not-so-bright-side. I don’t know about you, but for me, my tendency is DEFINITELY the latter. I think it’s important to discuss the bright side as a community of people, because it’s easier to see the bright side when you aren’t feeling so alone in it. And frankly, it’s a habit that needs to be cultivated. In all of us.

Let’s get this party started. Comment below answering this question, and interacting with other’s comments below. This will be like a singles chat room (remember those? yikes….I’m aging myself).


PS. *Please refrain from posting negative comments or discouraging others in any way, shape, or form below…it won’t be tolerated.

PPS. I can’t wait for the day when someone emails me and tells me they are getting married and met their spouse in the comment section of my blog. I can dream, can’t I? 😉

I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts and interacting with you along the way. Be sure to follow along on Facebook, too!
