4 Awesome Ways To Celebrate Being Single On Valentine’s Day/International Celebrate Being Single Day!


4 Awesome Ways To Celebrate Being Single On Valentine’s Day/International Celebrate Being Single Day!

On this day in 2015, I founded International Celebrate Being Day – on this Quirky Books blog! So that no single person has to feel alone on Valentine’s Day ever again! Instead, they can celebrate it as their special day, such as with a self-date! So today I am out on a self-date to celebrate being single on #ICBSDAY or #ICBSD! (International Celebrate Being Single Day – Feb 14th!) I am going to the cinema and for a meal! And I will be even more loved up with myself than usual!

I have to admit, I have always been happier being single than in a relationship! That doesn’t mean to say it will always be the case, but if it is, that’s fine! I get attracted to younger foreign asexual guys in their 20s, (I am an asexual younger cougar – so I like to kiss a younger guy, not have sex with them), so I am limited in finding someone suitable, especially as I don’t want (sex – as an asexual), marriage, or kids, and I love living on my own and still want 100% commitment but to live separate from someone special, and have them living just around the corner from my home would be nice – I don’t want to cook or clean for a guy, or share household bills with a guy, and if no guy likes that, fine, right now I really appreciate my single life and want it to stay like that for a while anyway!

How are you going to celebrate being single today?

Or if you are in a relationship, how are you going to go out of your way to make that someone feel extra special today? Yes, you may take them out at other times of year, yes, they may know you love them all year round, yes, you may buy them gifts all year around, but there is no harm in doing it today – what have you got to lose?

I never want to be with a cynical guy where Valentine’s Day is concerned or any other special day – and there are quite a lot of cynical guys or guys who have left their dating years behind – remember, if you are in a relationship, it is healthy to date once a week and to remember to not take these days for granted, as they won’t last forever! I believe any reason to celebrate life and love should be taken! I think life should be one big party from beginning to end! And quite frankly if a guy is not going to do anything in these respects, then I really don’t need him, as I make myself happy on every special occasion, yes, I never stay in on my birthday either, I go out, even if that means by myself! And I make myself happy all year round, so any guy who is interested in a relationship with me has a lot to live up to!!

Here are 3 awesome celebrate being single tunes to get you feeling that amazing – HAPPY TO BE SINGLE VIBE!

Whatever happens, however you spend February 14th, know that I love you, that I care, and I am here! And always celebrate being quirky you. Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy International Celebrate Being Single Day from me, lots of love, Sandra xxxxxxxx

P.S. Write soon – you know you want to!!

I Love Me A Poem By Sandra Bellamy


I love me.blog-post-image

With International Celebrate Being Single Day #ICBSD only a few days away, I thought it is time to celebrate being single and why it is important to say to yourself “I Love Me”.

I Love Me

A Poem By Sandra Bellamy

I love me for being unique, for being one of a kind and never bleak.

I love me for recognising I am like no other, for loving myself and taking the bother, to discover who I really am, my true purpose, because about me, I give a damn!

I love me for being my quirky crazy self, for understanding me, when no one else will.

I love me for cuddling me, for being there when things go blue, with a cup of tea or two.

I love me from head to toe, I love my lips, my hair, my eyes, my glow.

I love me for my deep appreciation of who I am, for being positive whenever I can.

I love me for every wobbly bit, for every sparkle, and for saying about life; that I love it!

I love me because I am my own best friend, from beginning to the end.

I love me to the ends of the earth, I love me to the moon and back, I love me just the way I am and that’s a fact.

I love me because I don’t try to be something I am not, and I love me for being me, weaknesses; strengths; the whole lot!

Hope you enjoyed that poem?

What do you love most about being you? And what are your plans for International Celebrate Being Single Day, #ICBSD, on Feb 14th??

Until next time, stay Quirky and Write soon

Awesome Quotes About Why It’s Good To Be Single #ICBSD


single quotes.blog-post-image

With International Celebrate Being Single Day #ICBSD, being only 10 days away (14th Feb), it’s time to start celebrating being single with these awesome quotes about why it’s good to be single. I love the last one “I’m single because I was born that way”. So many people push others to believe that by being single there is something wrong with you, which is totally untrue, it means that you are living a life in unity with yourself and that is an amazing feeling and very empowering. It means you are totally and utterly responsible for your own life and that is the true power of yourself, free to live your live and to care for who you want and be who you want to be.

International Celebrate Being Single Day #ICBSD, is a day I founded in 2015 so that no single person has to ever feel alone on Valentine’s Day – Instead they can CELEBRATE it as their special day too – By self-dating, or meeting up with friends. Every year since 2015 I have had a self-date on that day and I love it – makes me feel great. What do you do on a self-date?

Until next time, stay quirky and write soon

How To Overcome Setbacks: My 12 Simple Step Formula How To Overcome Setbacks! Happy New Year 2018!


How To Deal With Setbacks!

My 12 Simple Step Formula How To Overcome Setbacks!

Happy New Year 2018!

So last year I had a number of setbacks in succession. First I was made redundant from my day job of 5 years that I enjoyed, 2 days later, 10 of my websites got hacked and my account was suspended by my web host for all of my sites. It took me about 7 weeks to finally get them all back online virus free, databases mended, security learned to a high degree and installed on each with backup, and to redesign some and put coming soon notifications on the others – as I am changing some of them anyway this year (blessing in disguise?). The guy I was with turned out not to be so nice so I split with him and my printer did not work for 3 weeks – I fixed it and now it has stopped working again! My fibro book is yet to be finished, I have written the meat but need to rearrange some of the chapters!

My simple 12 step formula for how to overcome setbacks:

  1. Believe everything happens for a reason good or bad – this stops the ‘why me syndrome’, and know that life is forcing you to change paths somehow for your own good, you aren’t living up to your full life potential and you need to be on another path.
  2. Know that things often come in a succession but it is better to get all the s..t out and got rid of in one long go than keep getting lots of ups and downs (preferably short go) but accept that life is full of ups and downs anyway.
  3. Always remember when there are a ton of downs, law of averages means there is going to be a lot of ups coming your way.
  4. Remain positive! Have a positive attitude to life and use positive self-talk!
  5. Say, bring it on, I am stronger than you think and I can deal with anything life throws my way.
  6. Know that life will be struggle and expect it, so when it comes it is not as shocking.
  7. Believe in yourself and your ability to work things out.
  8. See all obstacles as challenges that you will gladly overcome.
  9. Know there are no failures, just lessons to learn from – therefore you can never truly fail.
  10. Believe it is better to have struggles, challenges, and be stretched, to develop and grow yourself into a stronger version of you than to stagnate in life and never change.
  11. See change as a good thing.
  12. Always count your blessings and be thankful and grateful for what you do have and that you are alive.

I hope that helps you.

As always, stay quirky and write soon.

Happy New Year 2018.

Lots of love and hugs xx
