Setting Goals For 2020

You may not have pictured yourself living alone when you were younger but based on changing
life circumstances you find yourself on your own. Many women find themselves living alone
today, either by choice or due to their spouse’s/partner’s death or even more commonly, divorce.
The good news is that you’re not really alone, as more women are living independently and
loving it! There are a lot of reasons that living alone is actually a great place to find yourself.

If you are not thrilled about being solo how can you learn to love living alone? Easy! Just check
out some of the reasons living alone is an incredible opportunity for independence and growth!

You Get To Enjoy Your Alone Time!

Research shows that women simply ‘do’ better when living alone. Studies find that when women
live alone, they feel relaxed and they actually like being completely alone. Living alone means
you get time to yourself, to do what you want, and you can live life on your terms. This is such a
phenomenon that there’s a movement in which committed couples are even living alone, together
(termed LAT) and finding much fulfillment in being part of relationships that still end up with
you getting the bed all to yourself at night.

It’s Easier to Make and Keep Friends.

Research also finds that women are better at ‘friendship’ than men are, and it’s a lot easier to do
what you want to do with your friends when you don’t feel obligated to the needs and wants of
another. Having no one to answer to when making your own plans means you get to nurture
friendships with time and experiences, and you don’t worry about emotional obligations to a

When You Live Alone, You Do What YOU Want To Do.

Let’s face it, women shoulder the majority of the workload, particularly at home. Living with a
partner often means that you follow traditional roles, and those traditional roles have always
meant you were doing the lion’s share of the work. Solo living means you only take care of
yourself. If there’s a towel lying on the floor? You put it there and if you want to leave it there,
you can! No worrying about the unfair load of responsibilities when you’re on your own.

You Can Live The Life You Want To Live

When you know how to love living alone, you really are living for yourself. There’s power in solitude,
and you can decorate how you want, eat how you want, watch or listen to whatever you want, and there’s
no one to answer to but yourself. Women who love living alone find that they’re able to explore,
travel, and adventure more than before. They also find that they don’t feel pressured by time or
people to do anything they don’t want to do. There’s power in knowing you’re in charge of the
life you want to live.

When you know how to love living alone, the world really is your oyster. Living
alone means you have space, time and motivation to do what YOU really want to do, and
you’ll find that it’ll be easy to fill those ‘lonely’ times with people and things you really want around you. It’s the
opportunity to focus on your wants, needs and the life you want to lead.

Karen Rae

I was becoming an empty nester, a woman of a more interesting age and in transition. Sound familiar? I was at that place where we question our purpose, value, and worth and what in the world are we going to do with the rest of our lives.

I noticed women have a huge hunger to belong to a community of women where they can feel safe, share openly from their heart and have other women to do life with! This is why I created my Fave Lifestyles.

Fave is for the woman who wants to call Fave her community of women who support, uplift, and make her feel better about herself. I want to create a place where we help her answer life's questions and just do life together!
