Self Development By Mae Davies / September 12, 2014 Happiness is a state of well-being and satisfaction in one’s life. For some single women, the absence of a partner can sometimes have an effect on their happiness – some say that they feel unhappy, lonely, and uncared for – but the truth is they just don’t know how to find happiness in the midst of drought. In a single woman’s world, happiness may seem like a difficult thing to find, but we’ve got four ways to show you how to be happy in a single woman’s world. Think Ahead Focusing on becoming successful in your career, getting excited for your next vacation, or looking forward to becoming a better woman are ways for you to stay positive. Thinking ahead to future plans helps to keep you motivated – to think positively about things to come. Sometimes when present situations aren’t going your way, looking ahead can lift up your spirits and give you a feeling of happiness. Compliment Yourself We all have our bad days, days when we don’t feel beautiful in our own skin, days when everything just doesn’t go the way we want them to. This is perfectly normal, but in order to overcome one of those bad days, you just simply need to compliment yourself. Heartening words such as telling yourself, “You look good today” or “You’re a strong woman, and you can overcome anything” helps to develop an optimistic character. Single women need to continually encourage themselves so that they can build up their self-confidence and become a better woman. Find a Hobby When women are preoccupied with something that they enjoy doing, they are most likely going to be in a better mood. Acquiring a new hobby is a great way to relieve stress – it is a way to express how you feel, improve your skills, and challenge you in new ways. Activities such as sewing, painting, dancing, or cooking are great examples of hobbies that you would want to improve your skills in. Find something that you are passionate about, something you love to do, something that will make it less of a burden for you to accomplish – bringing you joy and excitement every time you are doing it. Make New Friends There’s nothing more enjoyable than making new friends, creating memories, laughter, and sharing thoughts and ideas. Creating new relationships makes women be happy and joyful, and enthusiastic to share their life and build a certain bond that could last a lifetime. For a single woman, the kinship they create with others cheers them up and makes them feel important, that they are loved and cared for despite their singlehood life. Singlehood is a period in life that should not be taken for granted. Moping around and being miserable won’t get you anywhere – so why do it? Finding the light in the midst of singlehood will mold you into a much stronger, optimistic, and beautiful woman you could have never imagined. All it takes is the right attitude and an optimistic mind that chooses to be happy despite life’s challenges.
