Seeing that my adventure is all about loving yourself for who you are and are becoming it should come at no surprise that I asked myself out on a date. I mean in ‘regular’ dating people go out and do fancy things to get to know each other, why shouldn’t I do those things for myself? I have taken myself on many dates in the past and enjoyed it very much, but since it was a Valentine’s day date I fell for the trap of having to do something special.
As a token of having fallen more in love with who I am, I planned a special treat yourself. However I realized I have no one to impress but me and seeing that I get impressed by how happy I can spend my day, I decided to cancel all the plans. If I am going to show myself love, I should do it properly. Which means showing it with things that would actually make me happy. Normally I go on icecream dates but since I do that often I figured I had to do something else.
There was one thing I have been wanting to do for a very long time but every time I get a chance I collapse in bed. Not this past Saturday. I planned for my day to end at six PM, so I would have plenty of time to prepare everything at home. I had already gone to the grocery store and bought all the cliches. Chocolate, cookies and candy. I also picked up a can of my ultimate guilty pleasure, a Pepsi in case you were wondering. All of this I decorated in the most girly way on the table next to my bed.
The next step was the preparation of me. Normally this would mean scrub, face mask and some oil therapy. Not last Saturday since I was not up for doing all that. I took a regular shower and continued straight on to the start of my night. I was just too excited! All there was left to do was turn on my nightlight and start my comedy. Which I had been wanting to watch for a couple of weeks now, very happy I cancelled my fancy plans!
Measuring love is best done by measuring happiness, I can assure you I spend my night happy as could be.
