The Single Girl Diaries: You + Me = US

Does anyone else remember this song. It was on like a Disney or Nickelodeon movie wasn't it?

"I know my calculus…it says You + Me = Us"

Okay thank GOD you cannot hear me singing this right now, because my singing voice is anything but a joyful noise. 

Anyways, I feel like this sometimes in my singleness. Like I cannot fully complete my life's mathematical equation until there is a "you" and an "us." I get caught up in well I want to do a, d, c, and d with my life, but I don't have a husband so I better wait until that large piece of the puzzle is in place before I go making any huge decisions. 

I feel like so many single women are pressing pause on their hopes and dreams simply because they don't have their significant other. Women are holding off on opening their dream business to see if they should open it elsewhere because "you never know where you could end up when you're married." Or women who buy the SUV instead of the sporty convertible because they just know in a few years they'll be married with kids. {:By the way I know this girl who did that, bought an SUV because she thought she would have kids in this cars lifetime, and it didn't happen. Instead she's moving to Australia. Oh no! Not me, because there are clearly tons of single chicks moving from my area to Australia:} Or how about this one: no, I can't do what God's called me to do. I'm not married yet. Once I get married I'll do all of that stuff with my husband.

Okay sister dependent…You + God = EVERYTHING! Not, you+your husband+God+2.5 kids+a white picket fence=everything 

We get in this mindset sometimes like God has asked us to put our hopes and dreams on hold simply because we aren't married. That's not true. Rather it is the perfect time to peruse them because He knows you'll rely more on Him and not an earthly man.

You are enough. You are good enough, you are strong enough, you are smart enough, you are equipped enough to do everything God has called you to do {:and some fun shenanigans on the side too:}
