I had the biggest ME DAY without planning it this past Saturday.
- Had pole dancing class
- Went shopping
- Ate lunch at a sit-down restaurant
- Worked away on personal projects at a Starbucks
It felt great. Heck, it felt AMAZING. To be on my own agenda, without anyone telling me what to do and when to do it. Being able to spend my time and money wherever I dictated. Quite a liberating feeling, especially when you come from an environment that needs series of approvals, whether it is in the office or choosing a place to eat with friends. But, when you are by yourself, all you have to say is ‘Yup, doing it.” and it’s done!
The newest experience is probably eating by myself. At the beginning, you feel like you should be using this as a social time, or you would think that the waiter is judging you a bit. Then I thought: “Why can’t we eat out alone?” I mean, why limit it to just ordering take out and eating at home while binging on Netflix? I want to enjoy the restaurant ambiance too!
Never thought I would ever say: “Table for one, please.” But hey, now I would not even hesitate doing that again.
