Looking back at that Embracing Single Life challenge, there were some great prompts in there just to have fun and be carefree, but also some good prompts to get me thinking.
Day 3 of that challenge was write what you don’t want…I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what I want, but only occasionally think about what I don’t want, which can be equally important.
So, what I don’t want:
- Someone who doesn’t share my faith. It’s the most important part of my life, and I cannot share my life with someone who doesn’t put that part of his life first.
- Someone who has no passion. I’m a passionate person, and I find people who lack passion very boring.
- Someone who lacks motivation and aspiration. I’m constantly moving & growing, I like to be around others who are. I get easily irritated by people who become complacent in life. Do we have to rule the world? No. But, we need to be able to work & explore & have dreams and goals.
- Someone who hates travel. I want to be on the move. I want to explore. I want to go. Of course, I want a place to come back to (and to take with me…Tiny house anyone?)
- Someone with no sense of humor. I love to laugh. And, if a guy can make me laugh, yeah, it’s super important.
- Someone who lacks compassion. I care about making a difference in others lives, something I hope to share with him. I can’t do that if he lacks compassion.
I’m sure there are more, but these are the biggest things that come to mind.
As a single, Christian girl in 2016, life can get lonely. But, I know I’d rather serve God alone than live a worldly life with the wrong person.
