It’s a funny old time of year, January, as you know that you want to kick the bad habits of the festive period but it’s just difficult to shake off those lingering lazy cobwebs.
The above couldn’t be more true when it comes to relationships and if you find yourself weighed down or held back by your current partner then perhaps this is the best time of year to say out with the old and in with the new?
Of course, there’s no need to be so drastic if you’re not in a relationship and if you find yourself single and solo at the start of 2014 then read on as below you’ll find out the reasons why this is an absolutely splendid position to be in.
A new year often signals the start of a change of fortunes and in the work place is definitely the best place to look if you’re hoping to make more money and forge forward with your career. When you’re in a relationship it’s often tricky to put your job prospects first without outwardly appearing to be slightly selfish however, if you’re single this is not the case. Work long hours, study at the weekends and have fun with colleagues after work hours because this is your best chance of getting ahead in the world of business.
It may seem strange to think that we can gain self-confidence when not in a relationship but this is exactly what we have to do sometimes to build a stronger picture of our true selves. What music we like to listen to, how we like to socialise and even what food we eat goes up to making our personal identity and not having to compromise on anything enables us to get a better picture of who we really are. Finding ourselves prior to embarking on a new relationship will no doubt stand us in better stead for future commitments and help build self confidence as a single human being.
When enjoying a partner’s company we sometimes neglect our friends as from spending time together over the weekend to taking our annual holiday as part of a couple, finding time to fit in all your mates is often put on the back burner in favour of your most significant other. If you’re single then this doesn’t have to be the case as you can spend as much time with your good old pals as you wish. Watching the footy, visits to the cinema and nights down the pub that last into the wee small hours are all yours for the taking so enjoy them in 2014 while you still can.
Often when we have a partner the need to compromise comes into play and in order to have a healthy and balanced relationship give and take is simply what we have to do to make it work for both parties. If you’re on your own this just isn’t the case and one of the prime examples has to be where to take your next holiday. Heading off alone, with a group of friends or on an organised singles holiday with a company like TrekAmerica is a brilliant idea if you’re looking to do whatever you want to do and there’s no better time to book yourself on that flight than in 2014.
Follow your Dream
We all have a dream that we’ve kept close to our hearts over the years and sometimes meeting the perfect partner can see this dream shelved for a fashion or even diluted beyond recognition. If you’ve always wanted to do something but have been putting it off due to your partners wishes then stop right now. If you’re single in 2014 then you can do what you darn well please and if you want to buy that campervan or go on a trekking tour in India then now’s the time to save up your pennies and go for it.
The start of a new year is exactly what you need to kick start your finances, your health and your general attitude to life and if you find yourself on your own then there’s no need to feel down in the dumps in fact you should be feeling just the opposite. Be positive, keep to you resolutions and enjoy whatever it is that life has to throw at you because if you’ve got a path to follow then going it alone can often be the only way to travel. Be brave, find yourself and only commit to a new relationship if you’re sure that you’ve completed everything that you need to make you the person that you’re truly destined to become.
