Single + Free
Hello, friends! I hope your Friday finds you well! I'm back at school and busy unpacking and settling in, but you can read my post over at Our Yellow Door about being single + free today! The unbelievably sweet Rachel, who is the brilliant mind behind OYD, graciously allowed me to join the amazing women who are a part of the Singleness Series on her blog.
Y'all, if you haven't read this series, you need to. It's so chockfull of good advice, real life young women who experienced/are experiencing singleness, and a view centered on Jesus. The single life is a topic I love to talk about, so I'd absolutely love it if you hopped over to join the conversation about living Single and Free.
Singleness. It’s a word loaded with heavy - and often negative - connotation in today’s society. Hands up if you've been asked by a pestering aunt, cousin, grandmother, well-meaning family friend, or even your mother whether you've "met someone?"
I graduated high school as a single girl who had never dated. I wasn't going to college to find a husband.
Even if part of me secretly hoped I would.
Rather, I tried my hardest to make sure that wasn't what college would be about, despite getting this advice: "Now, you know, Grace, you'll probably meet your future husband in college, so make sure you choose the right one!"
Whoaaaa. Talk about pressure. I dismissed it without a second thought and I'm so glad I did.
Two years after receiving that advice, I'm still a single girl in college.
And guess what? I. Love. It.
