Single life re-do.

August 04, 2010

After graduating college and moving to Arizona all on my own, I lived by myself for two years. Two solid years that I wouldn't give back for anything.

While I dated off and on during this time, I was for the most part single. Everything that happened during those two years led me to where I am now - married and happy - so technically I wouldn't change a thing.

But, I did learn plenty along the way and I could have saved time, energy and heartbreak if I did things over.

I wouldn't question my gut and I'd go with my instincts.
I’d stay true to myself and my own heart before compromising it for someone else.
I would go out each time I was asked by girlfriends.
I'd cook myself dinner more often instead of always resorting to cereal or leftovers.
I would shake it off and cry a lot less tears.
I would never choose a worthless guy over a girlfriend.
I would put a lot more into savings and not get sucked into credit cards.

What did you learn or are currently learning in your single years that you'd do over?

  1. Life is all about choices. Some are good and some are bad. But as long as we learn something, I think that is what is important. :)

  2. Oh sister, you hit 'em all! I think another thing I would've done is spend more time with my family. My parents lived 15 minutes away from me in college, then right after I zoomed away to California and now I hardly ever see them.

  3. I learned to appreciate my alone time and that life isn't all that bad when you're able to be your own boss. I wish I would have played more :)

  5. I loved this. I haven't really ever been single, as I have been with my husband since we were 15. But since having a baby I have learned some things.

    I also don't ever turn down going out with girlfriends. I've learned to appreciate alone time, no baby, no husband. I am TRYING to learn to not only do things for my family, but also for myself, so I don't become one of "those" moms.
