New Year’s Resolutions Every Single Woman
Are you going to be alone again this year? When the clock strikes twelve and the ball drops, you find yourself alone among the cheering crowd as everyone else has someone to kiss. And slowly but surely you feel your insecurities and other negative thoughts rushing back in as you think about spending yet another year as a single woman. Screw that! 2020 is going to be an amazing year and all you need to do is set the tone right from the start. And the best way to do that is making the perfect New Year’s resolution for that you can keep.
“This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change.” – Taylor Swift
Yup. It’s a cliché. That same old ‘New Year, New Me’ BS. But what if I told you it can help you become the best version of yourself despite how cheesy it may sound. All you need to do is bring about a small mental shift. Instead of seeking love outside, next year start looking for love inside. Tell yourself that you deserve the absolute best and you won’t settle for anything less, and that goes for dating and relationships as well. This is the perfect time to make a commitment to practice self-love and embrace the awesomeness that is YOU!
2020 Life Goal: Focus on yourself
“What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.” – Vern McLellan
So 2019 was disappointing. Your love life didn’t go anywhere and things actually got worse than you expected. However, as the New Year’s Eve approaches, we feel pressurised to have someone by our side to kiss at midnight. But when you’re a single woman who has had some really terrible dates throughout the entire year, the New Year’s Eve can feel depressing and unsatisfactory. But the truth is, that’s NOT what the new year is about. It’s not about how or who you date. A new year is about making the most of available opportunities to bring in a change in your life. This is a time for rebirth, renewal and brand new beginnings. The New Year’s Eve IS about that ‘New Year, New Me’ BS despite how much cheesy it may sound. And all that can start by making a killer New Year’s resolution.
Entering a new year feels like opening a new door of opportunities to better health, better career, better lifestyle and better relationships. This is a great time to reflect on what’s working for you and what habits you need to ditch. Whether you’re trying to heal a broken heart, relishing your independence, enjoying being newly single or looking for someone special, this is the time to up your game, in life and in dating.
Empowering New Year’s resolutions for single women
Making the right New Year’s resolution as a single woman to start fresh on January 1 can help you make the most of your singlehood and empower you to build the life you actually want. So are you ready to rule 2020?
With 2020 just around the corner, here are some solid new year’s resolutions for single women that will keep you motivated and help you start the year right.
1. Show yourself some love
“If you can’t take care of yourself, you can’t take care of someone else.” – Sahithi Setikam
Love yourself first and foremost. Make this your mantra for 2020. Unless you learn to love yourself, you cannot love another person. If you don’t take care of your mental, emotional and physical needs yourself, you won’t be able to take of your partner either. You will keep expecting them to take care of you and that will lead to an unhealthy and toxic relationship. So take yourself shopping, get yourself some flowers, go out on a date with yourself, have some great food and enjoy your own company. And ALWAYS tell yourself how beautiful you are.
2. Embrace your singlehood
“Single is no longer a lack of options – but a choice. A choice to refuse to let your life be defined by your relationship status but to live every day happily and let your ever after work itself out.” – Mandy Hale
As I mentioned earlier, being single means no relationship restrictions. So enjoy this freedom right now before someone great comes into your life. Being an independent woman and having the freedom to be yourself is the most beautiful thing. Enjoy it now and carry it into your relationship as well.
3. Delete all dating apps
2020 is the time when you take a much needed break from Tinder and other dating apps. Deactivate your account and uninstall them. Do whatever that works for you and stop wasting your valuable time on swiping through worthless profiles mindlessly. This is an unhealthy practice that keeps you trapped in the loop and makes you feel depressed and discouraged about love and relationships.
Moreover, you also need to stop posting negative stuff on social media despite how low or depressed you may feel at the time. Instead of letting the world know how desperate you are for a relationship, talk to a trusted friend. People online don’t care about the pain you’re going through. To them, you’re just content. So get rid of those pesky dating apps and use your smartphone smartly.
