I have learned once again to never say you will never do something. Whether good or bad, it will come back to bite you. Last month, when the Scarlet Heart Editor mentioned that they were still looking for articles for the Feb. Valentines issue, I knew I was in trouble.
I hate talking about being single. In recent years, I’ve shut out anything in my life that talks about singleness…books, blogs, dating sites…you get the picture. I figure “out of sight, out of mind.” Little did I know that God had plans to break me of this stubbornness. It was time to take the leap and write about the one subject I said I would never write about. Time to truly put myself out there and share what I’ve learned and am learning during this time of life.
It’s that time of year again. Stores are decked in pink and red, and hearts galore. Commercials for flowers, jewelry, or cute personalized M&M’s flood TV screens. Yep, it’s almost Valentine’s Day. This day brings many different feelings to people. Some look at it as just another Hallmark-created day to get more cash out of the consumer. Some love the day and get all giddy about being able to have a special day to show their loved ones just how appreciated they are. Others can’t wait for the day to go away. They feel left out and even more alone than normal.

What is something you’ve been asked to do that was totally out of your comfort zone?
