Single Girl List

This is me way back when I dyed my hair. Don't worry, I'm still my natural dirty blond!

I'm SINGLE. And I'm going to EMBRACE it.
So I put together this list.
This list of things that are focused on me going out and making the most of myself. Living life, having fun, improving myself.
I call it my "SINGLE GIRL LIST."
So here's what I want to accomplish:

- Go canoeing
- Go hiking
- Dedicate at least 5 minutes a day to loving on my baby girl
- Read 52 books
- Attend at least 3 concerts
- Volunteer at least 20 hours
- Run a 5K
- Move at least once
- Buy fresh cut flowers at least once every 2 weeks in my future place
- Buy something wonderfully expensive and just for me. (Like this.)
- Learn to cook well.
- Bake something different at least once every week.
- Pay off all of my debt. Including my car! (Big dreams, I know!)
- Attend a pottery class
- Have a good workout routine and religiously abide by it at least 3 times a week
- Go white water rafting
- Picnic in the park
- Be a REALLY good friend
- Take a dance class. Ballet anyone?
- Take a kickboxing class
- Try yoga
- Check out the Smithsonian museums in DC
- Keep a journal
- Truly organize and purge my life of unnecessary or excessive possessions
- Let go of the desire to have children and let Him show me what He wants me to do in life
- Always admit when I've fallen in love
- Protect myself if it's obvious I'm going to get hurt
- Go parasailing
- Go on a tropical vacation with at least one good friend
- Put soap in a public fountain- and don't get caught
- Write an honest list of all my faults
- Address some of those faults
- Get really good at shooting (My aim currently blows)
- Get concealed carry permit in whatever state I'm living in
- Buy a gun
- Check out a new city
- Let a man do all the pursuing while dating
- Stop trying to master so many hobbies. Pick one and focus only on it.
- Plan a friend's baby/engagement/bridal shower
- Have a spa day complete with all the pampering you desire
- Go on a mission trip

Any ideas ladies? Anything you wish you would have done when you had more time to yourselves or anything you'd recommend?
Who wants to join me on this and make their own SINGLE GIRL LIST?

Happy Thursday everyone!


  1. Thanks for this!! I am only nineteen and have been in a relationship since I fifteen and am having to deal with being single now. I am having trouble figuring out that it is ok to be my and just be. Seeing this confirms that I need to learn who I am and I just want to thank you.

    1. You're welcome! I'm so glad you found it helpful :D I also have my "life list" here with tons of other ideas-

      Making time to find yourself, to explore, travel, volunteer, try new things; those all help you to fill your life with fun and meaningful activities that help you find a great deal of happiness on your own :D I wish you all the best, let me know if you come up with your own list and any ideas you have that I didn't list!

  2. I love this. I have a "To Do/ living the best life as a single girl" list too! I love being happy in life without having to need someone there to validate me or being stuck in a pity party. Time to live it up and have the best life, and when the right guy comes along he can join in on the fun! Nice to know I'm not the only cool single girl that does this! :)

    1. Yes, Emily! I love the concept that adventure and experience are part of life, not that we're just walking along until the right person finds us haha. I'm no longer single but for our first date in my now relationship, my boyfriend actually took one of the ideas from this list!


Hello gorgeous, I love reading your comments!
