I need to head to the big city to get my car serviced, so I’m taking myself on a date.
I plan to sit and savor food in a restaurant and go to a book store and stay in a hotel.
I don’t feel a strong need to “get away” from anything, I just know that spending some quality, intentional time alone is so important.
Without a list, without expectation, without coordinating logistics.
I know that taking this time for me makes me more present and open with others.
It makes me return to home with gratitude for the life I lead and the people I love.
And… it's fun.
What would you do on a date with yourself?
Perhaps it's time to schedule that.
