Seems like I'm not the only one who stays safely in the confines of her quiet little life!
So I'm going to grab the proverbial bull by the horns and as Nike would say...JUST DO IT.
I've decided to challenge myself to do something that takes me out of my comfy little
(And no, OHN, it will not start with wearing a bathing suit in public!)
There are plenty of things I'm fine with doing alone. I can go to the bookstore, the coffee shop, shopping, anything like that by myself. I could go to a museum alone (although I never do).
I think f8hasit said it best..."I like being alone sometimes, but not doing social activities alone".
That's my problem.
I have an aversion to doing things solo that most people tend to do coupled up.
Like dinner out. A movie. Going to a bar and listening to a band. See a Broadway play. Go to a concert.
But the thing is, there are a lot of movies I want to see! There are a lot of places I'd love to go for dinner! And there is many a Friday night (most of them actually) that I really want to get out of the house and do something, but because I don't have a date, I stay home and watch TV.
So I've decided, that in light of my 49th birthday being right around the corner (March 22nd, in case anyone wants to send presents), this year I'm going to stop missing out on things just because I'm single.
This year, I'm going to live the life I love.
This year, I'm going to love the life I live!
Tomorrow night, I am going out to a local bar, one that I go to with friends every few months, and I'm going to pull up a bar stool, have a couple of drinks, and listen to some live music.
Next week I'm going to go to this great Mediterranean restaurant that I've been dying to try.
The week after, I'm not sure what exactly I will do yet, but something. Whatever it ends up being, it will be...
I'll be blogging about my solo adventures, so I hope you will continue giving me your feedback, and ideas on things to do!
Wish me luck tomorrow. I'm gonna be pissed if someone slips a Rufie in my drink while I'm in the bathroom though.
Well, unless he's hot, of course.
