A few months ago I was at the local library, and I was browsing through a women’s interest section when I stumbled upon a book called The Single Girl’s Manifesta. While the book is not one I recommend, I did find it somewhat inspiring because she talks about embracing your singleness wholeheartedly and choosing to live abundantly (her word was exquisitely) as a single woman.
One of the things that I loved about the book is that it is a manifesto, a declaration of how she wants to live as a single. While I personally don’t agree with how she wants to live as a single, I loved the idea of writing out my own declaration of how I want to live as a single so here is my manifesto:
The BarnPrincess’ Single Manifesto
Have you ever considered writing your own manifesto? What would you include?
Want to write your own manifesto but don’t know how?
Here are 5 steps to writing your own manifesto from The Huffington Post:
- Be inspired.
- Make notes.
- Write a rough draft.
- Put it away and then proofread.
- Live it.
Now get busy and write your own.
(BTW: I don’t recommend the book because she talks about and encourages sex outside of marriage. I don’t, but that is a discussion for another post. I also don’t like how she defines single. She says that singleness is a state of mind and that you can be part of a couple and still be single.)
