S.O. What! I’m Single

With another Valentine’s Day upon us, we are bombarded with messages of love, and many people who are companionless, like me, tend to feel down.

Well, at 34 years old I have only had a significant other for ONE Valentine’s Day in my life. Just one. Do I feel bad about that? Nope, not at all.

Sure, it would be nice to have a boyfriend…well, a man friend, but I am not the type of person to force anything just to be with someone. Why?

Because I love ME enough to wait on the right time and the right person. And enjoy my time and myself. If you’re single too, I hope you love you enough too.

If you’re blessed to be able to share Valentine’s Day, and more importantly every other day, with someone you love then be thankful and never take that person for granted. And don’t forget to love yourself too.

So, I’m single. S.O. What! I’m single.

P.S.  On Saturday, I’m going home to treat my mother to Valentine’s concert featuring Will Davenport, an awesome new artist. And, tomorrow, I’ll wake up and give my son a card and the chocolate-covered cherries he loves. I’ll call both of my grandmothers too. They are all my Valentine’s, and that’s enough for me. :)



I’m Summer Owens, and my passion is helping youth and young adults realize success no matter what obstacles they face. As an international resilience and leadership keynote speaker, author, S.O. What! Success Coach, and creator of the S.O. What! Literacy, Life Skills, and Character Education curriculum, I empower people to say, “So what!” to even their greatest challenges.  provide a framework to help people see past their challenges and focus on solutions using the S.O. What! Success System (Overcome Obstacles + Eliminate Excuses + Calculate Choices = S.O. What! Success). Through keynotes, workshops, books, online courses, and workbooks, I use life’s challenges and my own story of resilience as a rape survivor and teen mom success story to help others confidently pursue their dreams.

Looking for an inspiring college motivational speaker? A high school literacy curriculum? A middle school life skills workbook? A great example for teen mothers? A women’s empowerment or single mother’s conference speaker?  I’m your girl and will help any audience say, “S.O. What!”.
