5 Things to Do When You’re Single
by Habiba Abudu
I never had a boyfriend before (cue gasps). I know. I know. How can a fabulous gal like me be condemned to singleness? You may be shocked, but I believe God is protecting me from all the fluff that is out there. I truly believe that society as a whole is looking at singleness wrong. This year my perspective has radically changed and I am really not interested in getting tied down just yet. Here are some tips that have helped me:
I have no babies or man and I can go wherever I please (albeit I need money first), but I am looking forward to the places that God will take me this year.
- Become a Good Steward
I am learning how to manage my finances, my house and myself. The spirit of self-control is real y’all. I am also using this time to raise up strong women of God and develop a sisterhood. Sowing into other people’s lives is one of my greatest fulfillments.
- Get in “Rocky Balboa” Shape
I am getting in the best shape of my life. I do believe taking care of your temple is a major key to success. I participate in runs and can walk for hours. Exercise and a good diet has really developed my self-confidence.
- Develop Intimacy with Christ
While many girls are looking for a relationship, there is a real man who is ready to begin a relationship with you. His name is Jesus Christ. I can spend hours with Christ. Whether it be in the Word or just praying, the process has been really sanctifying. It is through this process that I can share my fears, my failures, my hopes.
- Pursue Your Dreams
When you married and have kids your time is limited. Right now, the sky is the limit. I am able to dedicate myself to various individuals, go to networking events and be used mightily by God to do big things!
