Atilola Moronfolu is an entrepreneur, a writer and an editor. She got married last week and shared a very inspiring Facebook note to encourage single women to enjoy their lives.
There are so many things I learned from her, I particularly liked that she shared her own personal experience of rocking her singleness and accomplishing a whole lot while she was single.
“I travelled round the world, organised shows, taught teenagers every Saturday and Sunday, wrote books, developed IPs, performed at events, ran businesses… I had so much time to give that I invested every moment of my life in one cause or the other, and I enjoyed it…. So one thing I know is this, come tomorrow morning, when I am changing status, like we did in high school, I will hold my head up with pride, boldly beat my chest, and sign on the wall of fame of singleness “Atilola wuz ‘ere!” she said
Below are three things that really touched my heart from her note, I think every single woman need to embrace these truths in spite of what the society says.
- Marriage is not by force. You have a right to choose to be single or to be married.
- There is nothing wrong with a girl just because she is not married. She is not incomplete
- To be single means to be ONE in every way… to be CONCENTRATED… to be WHOLE… to be UNIFIED… to be SINGULAR… to be SINGLE-HEARTED.
