There are legit reasons to scorn this holiday, but surprisingly more reasons to love it.
Stepping into others' singles experiences feeds my curiosity and is important to the work I do as a writer. It's interesting to know what's important to other singles, what worries them, what makes them happy and what they're completely over!
Sometimes I run across things that fill me with pride in knowing that I'm a part of "them." This is one such occasion.
By now you probably know that I'm obsessed with being thankful in all things. So much so that I occasionally get on my own nerves.
There are days I just don't want to be thankful. I want to complain about having to do the laundry and my hair, or dread the drive across town to see my dad, or park waaay in the back of the parking lot. Then I feel like a jerk and go back to being thankful.
