Table for One

Imagine going to a restaurant, and the host asks "how many in your party?" You then smile and reply "table for one, please."If you haven't done this, I highly recommend it. Perhaps on another day (or even the same!) go catch a movie by yourself. What would life look like if you began to date and treat yourself in this current season? Tell yourself you're beautiful. Take yourself out. Laugh at your own jokes. Many are walking around frustrated in their season of singleness instead of taking advantage of the awesomeness that is staring them back in the mirror.


What happens if you find contentment right now? Can you enjoy where you are? If you're struggling with this, it's time to get to the root of the issue. There's a lot to be said for someone that is allowing the lack of a partner to bring stress and/or dissatisfaction. Not cool!


Examine the number one reason (or main reasons) that you desire a mate. I'm sure for every reason you list, there's a form of positivity to counteract it. Try it! Money, love, company, and sex all have a rebuttal of some sort.


In the mean time, be content. Your season may very well change before you know it. Then you'll have to share the dinner decisions with someone else. And you won't get to watch chick flicks all the time. For now, step out in your greatest outfit, prance into the restaurant and request a table for one. You're single, not lonely. You're alone, not forsaken. Set apart, not set aside.

Live fearlessly single!
