Happy Wednesday and congratulations on making it halfway through the work week! That’s always something to celebrate right?
We are really excited to (FINALLY) be releasing this episode. Ever since we recorded this one, we knew it would be a big hit, mainly because this is a question that we get asked a lot, whether it be from friends, listeners, or even ourselves.
Waiting can be so difficult, especially when it seems like everyone around you isn’t having to wait as long as you are. So in Episode 1.6, we wanted to talk about how to wait well as a single woman. We’re going to break that down for you in two different ways.
First, we talk about what it looks like when you’re in a season of waiting, and you have your eye on a particular guy. We answer questions like…
These are all such important questions when it comes to navigating dating. We have both experienced many trial and error situations when trying to figure out the answers, so we want to share them with you in hopes that you won’t make the same mistakes we did.
And second, we talk about what it looks like to wait well while you’re single and you’re not interested in anyone specific. My mom has said for years, “Kristen, you can’t sit at home all day and wait for the UPS guy to deliver your husband to your front door. You actually have to go places and do things if you want to meet someone.” As much as I would try to prove her wrong, I figured out that she’s absolutely right! We have to be willing to put ourselves out there if we want to meet someone.
But even beyond that, we can’t just spend this season of singleness in a waiting pattern, hoping for marriage to come along. I came to the realization not too long ago that I didn’t want to look back on this season of my life and regret waiting around and not doing anything because I was buying into the lie that life starts after marriage. Because that’s just NOT TRUE.
There are so many opportunities and experiences we have available to us while we’re single, so why not take advantage of them? And that’s exactly what we want to address in this episode. We give you practical ideas of how you can spend your time and how you can enjoy this season to the fullest.
We hope you enjoy this episode and that you finish it feeling encouraged to make the most of your singleness right now, whether you’re interested in someone or not. Plus, we would love to hear about all of the fun and exciting things you’re doing or interested in doing in this season of your life. So be sure to hit us up (is that still a cool phrase?) on Instagram or Facebook, or shoot us an email and let us know what you’re doing to make sure this season is memorable and meaningful!
P.S. I mentioned a blog post I recently wrote that kind of goes along with this episode. You can read that blog post here!
