Table for One Please

Professional Speaker-Personal Development-Positive Attitude

I did it! I finally took some time for myself – without making excuses or feeling guilty. And I loved every minute of it.

I admit that I don’t do this too often, but a couple of days ago, I reserved an evening for myself, and it felt oh sooooo good.

I decided to grab my favorite magazine, the one I never find time to read, and headed for a lovely restaurant in town. Not the kind where you pick up your meal in a box, but a real restaurant with a white tablecloth and all.

I have to admit that as easy as this sounds, I did have some trouble making this happen. After all, it was much easier to put on my sweats, turn on the TV, and assume a predictable place on the couch. You see, my husband was out of town on business and I had the entire evening to myself, to be sloppy and messy, with no one knowing.

But I talked myself out of being a couch potato for this evening and headed to a local restaurant.

I started by ordering a cocktail, told the server not to hurry my order, and cracked open my magazine.

And what a lovely evening I had. Who knew that a date with myself could be so enjoyable!!! So guilt-free.

So, with our days filled with work, errands, and all the “have to do’s”, I encourage you to open your calendar and schedule some time just for you. That’s correct – write it down just like any other important appointment. After all, what’s more meaningful than your own sanity. I know I’m looking forward to my next date with myself. In fact I’m going to start planning it now. I can’t wait to see where I end up.
