Taking Yourself Out On Dates!

 


"I am special
I am beautiful
I am wonderful
And powerful
Unstoppable
Sometimes I'm miserable
Sometimes I'm pitiful
But that's so typical of all the things I am"

 -Hilary Duff: I Am

 
It's time to feel that spark of being happy, skipping down the street with a smile and feeling as free as a bird. It's time to put on your favourite outfit and take yourself out on a date missy! Yes just you and yourself!


I first heard about this idea from Gala Darling http://galadarling.com/ and happen to think this is a fabulous thing to do! Whether you're single or in a relationship, taking yourself out on dates is a refreshing reminder of the beautiful human being you are!

Quiet often you get stuck in needing people to go with you to do something and you are too scared to do something by yourself. Think about it for a second how many times have you wanted to go do something or go somewhere but haven't because you don't have anyone to go with? Maybe your life is stressful and you don't get enough time to yourself or maybe you're just hating everything about life and yourself. Wherever you are in life and whatever you're going through NOW is the time to explore date days!
 
These are days you spend doing wicked things alone and appreciate all the magnificent things about yourself. You might be thinking "Agghh I hate being by myself I get so lonely and bored!" Sometimes we feel being lonely is a bad thing but being lonely doesn't have to be bad nor boring...let yourself feel being lonely and then go and do something fun and enjoy the time alone! Being able to enjoy your own company is empowering and rewarding. It doesn't matter how young, old or your gender celebrate and treasure yourself because as the saying goes "You deserve your love more than anyone"

My Top 10 Things To Do On Date Days!

1. Exercise: Go to the Gym/hiking/walking or do different outdoor activities. Roll down hills in bubble wrap! Breathe in fresh air and feel the sun shining down on you.
2. Movies: Treat yourself to the latest big screen movie or have a quiet night in watching chick flicks, horror movies or whatever you like. Make sure you have tissues or you've closed and locked or all the doors and windows...
3. Museum: Go explore your local or another cities Museum and discover all the historical stories.
4. Library: Put on some geeky glasses and go learn! Live in a world full of Queens, Kings and fairytale endings. The possibilities are endless!
5. Playgrounds: Swing as high as the sky and play with furry friends.
6. Spa day/Bubble baths: Relax and pamper yourself while reading tragically trashy books. May I suggest making your own fruit facials which are easy and cheap!
7. Window shopping: Use all the testers in shops until someone looks at you disapprovingly or kicks you out.
8. Pic nic: Go to a park or garden, blow bubbles, pick flowers and write poetry.
9. Drawing/Painting: Put on music that suits your mood and create another world.
10. Mediation/yoga: Go somewhere quiet and find your inner peace.



Treat yourself like a motherfuckin princess or prince because after all your worth it! ;D
