11.11 Singles Day
So, what is ‘Singles Day’? Me, not knowing what it is, jumped to ask Mr Google about it. Singles Day turns out to be a popular holiday amidst young Chinese to celebrate their status of being ‘single’.
I then started to think, “Why celebrate Singles Day? What is its significance?” I let my train of thought ran freely until I reached an epiphany: what if celebrating Singles Day means paying tribute and acknowledging liberation of the self?
At X NIHILO we don’t necessarily see that celebrating Singles Day is about your relationship status. Singles Day means the freedom to show strength and empowerment – not only to the outside world – but also most importantly to ourselves.
It is remarkable how far acknowledging yourself can bring you. It is of the utmost importance that you know your identity and believes that you can make a difference to make one and taking care of yourself physically and mentally.
“Self-care is not an indulgence. Self-care is a discipline. It requires tough-mindedness, a deep and personal understanding of your priorities, and respect for both yourself and the things you choose to spend your time with.”
