Single Over the Holidays
7-ways-to-embrace-single-life-during-the-holidays-and-not-be-miserable-2-e1511363398154.jpeg

Are you single and moving through the holidays going "seriously? this is my life?" I know how you feel.

Treat yourself well. This week you get permission from me to enjoy the holidays in the way it works for you. You don't have to be thrilled about it.

Hug,

My Eyes So Soft

by Hafiz

Don't surrender your loneliness so quickly.
Let it cut more deeply. 

Let it ferment and season you
as few human ingredients can. 

Something missing in my heart tonight
has made my eyes so soft, 
my voice so tender,
my need of God,
so absolutely clear.

Do you beat yourself up? Do you attach a judgement to a feeling? In this episode Sara points out that there is nothing wrong with loneliness...even partnered and married people feel lonely too. It's when you attach something to it that makes it worse, like "I'm lonely, so I must be a loser". That's easy to do when you've been single for a really, really, long time. Single girls, this one's for you. It's Not You. It's just life, happening for you.
