When I turned 18, my mom gave me my grandmother's diamond ring. "Now you never have to wait for any man," she told me. I remember feeling a newfound sense of independence as my finger sparkled before me. No longer would I have to wait on another human being's validation of me to get a little bling. I already had the power.
Even though I still wear my ring every day, I haven't thought about that moment in a few years. Somewhere along the way, I lost that sense of security which my little token once gave me. I'm sure broken hearts have a tiny thing to do with it, and I also will give some credit to the neverending Facebook posts of friends getting engaged which let's face it, beats up us singles from time to time. And those damn "He went to Jared" commercials!
Nevertheless, the diamonds constantly call us. And make us feel powerful. And celebrated. They make us remember our worth. Yet, so few of us indulge in these secret wants and rather, wait for the guy(s) in our life to get a clue. But I'm taking my independence back this year! No longer will I gaze at those Tiffany windows wishing I could go on the fourth floor if ONLY I had a man beside me. Sure the engagement one celebrates a milestone, but there are too many beautiful diamonds in the world to just wait for the big day.
So with the holiday season around the corner, there's no better time to channel your inner Samantha. I challenge you to give yourself a little sparkle love. I'm personally digging this fashion ring from Diamond.Com.
Let's face it-the men in our single lady lives may come and go, but there's no denyin' our diamonds are rock solid. And therefore, our very best friends.
I'm Off the Market & In the Moment!
