I’m not the type to bend to peer pressure and I never was a “social drinker”. I used to love eating alone at a restaurant and even going to the movie theater alone.
And I didn’t go in hiding or as if ashamed to be alone.
Red lipstick and high heels came along for a fabulous night out with moi.
This had nothing to do with picking up a date or anything either.
After all, we are all worth treating ourselves right, right?
This doesn’t mean I put others last or that I always put myself first.
It just means that instead of bashing myself all day, I try to be nicer and more appreciative.
The way my body looks drives me bonkers since giving birth to twins but, ahh isn’t it nice how my belly stretched to absurd greats just to accommodate two new lives-kind of magical no?
It was about just getting excited to spend quality time with myself.
Long ago the thought of going out alone would have killed me.
People poke fun at me for being a total nerd, but on the other hand isn’t it fantastic when someone loves learning and gets excited over Albert Einstein’s quotes!? In many cases people hold their self-worth lower than other people. Example: If you need to lose weight, tell yourself that you are so worth cooking healthy food for.
Now I’ve romanticized the idea of taking care of myself and appreciating my own company.
I honestly have convinced myself it’s the cool and fabulous thing to do.
