Through interviewing women, in #Beautychronicles101, all over the world, I’ve gained the courage to share my own. If you would like to receive updates about my journey and allow me to take part in your journey [SUBSCRIBE HERE] !
Having “me time” is one of the best gifts I could give to myself! Whether I take myself to the movies, dinner or even to the spa; it doesn’t matter. After a stressful week, I honestly look forward to alone time. When I worked in Customer Service, I had to sit and listen to customers complain their way up the corporate chain. The customer hated the product but wanted to keep it and get a refund.
Sigh! Oh- the sounds of suspicion.
After sitting there fighting to keep my sanity; the last thing I wanted to do was talk, yet alone listen.
Some people may think “Oh, she must have no friends!” The list can on and on; however, the fact is none of those claims are true. I have my group of friends. We don’t always get to see each other because life gets busy. But when we do get together; it’s as if time hasn’t passed.
I actually thoroughly enjoy spending my “Me Time” reflecting and conceptualizing future goals. It’s so funny because random people that I have met think I’m crazy!
“What you’re here by yourself? Where are your friends?”
Let’s not forget the famous “Oh my gosh. I could NEVER do that. I HAVE to have my friends with me wherever I go.”
I get how going solo can be Scary! However, there are far scarier things in the world. Unless you are scared of getting to know yourself! Haha.
It’s so fulfilling to rewind in a positive way. Taking myself on dates has increased my confidence and it has allowed me to see the world in a different light. The world actually seems to move at a slower pace when you’re on your own. Why not stop time for a little bit and enjoy the beauty of life?
Did I mention it’s always fun to people watch? You are missing out if you haven’t done so yet. From witnessing a man get on his knees to propose to his long-time girlfriend to watching a mother became hysterical as her newborn baby broke glass with those Mariah Carey notes. My heart filled with sympathy for the new mother; however, it reminded me that I wanted to wait a bit longer before having children. Oh – haha. And I had to get married first!
At times, I even run into like-minded individuals who aren’t afraid to take themselves out on a date. You never who you’re going meet! Of course, that is only when I was in the mood to speak!
I didn’t plan on being in the customer service industry for long. It was “just” a job to get by. I wanted to stay in the city and be an adult. So – I took whatever job I could get at the time. When I silenced the world – I became more productive in how I was going to bring my vision into fruition.
