5 Yummy Advantages Of Being Single During The Holidays


5 Yummy Advantages Of Being Single During The Holidays [EXPERT]
Pumpkin pie isn't the only delicious thing about celebrating Thanksgiving single!

5. I had the freedom to skip Thanksgiving and go on vacation! With no one holding you back, you can opt to skip Thanksgiving entirely and go on vacation instead. Grab another single girlfriend and head to the Caribbean or someplace warm. Or, if you like winter sports, head for the mountains to go skiing and snowboarding. I tried this, too, and it was a wonderful time to get away.

So, free yourself from holiday traditions. Once you free yourself up from traditional ways to celebrate the holidays, the world is your oyster. You can do anything you want! Now isn't that a better perspective on being single than feeling sorry for yourself on Thanksgiving? Sure is!

Enjoy a generous slice of "gratitude pie" and most importantly, I recommend to all my dating coaching clients that they take time to remember what is working right in their lives. Everyone has so much to be grateful for when you give it some thought.

No matter what is going wrong, when you think about it, you can always find a few things that are truly a blessing in your life. Gratitude is the best slice of happiness you can create for yourself. So take a big helping of gratitude pie and enjoy yourself this Thanksgiving!
