Enjoy Yourself

I just want to take a moment and talk about being alone.

Nothing is wrong with it.

The time you have with yourself is equally as special and important as the time you spend around others. As we experience things with friends and family, we learn more about them and our relationships grow as a result. We should do the same for ourselves. Take time to experience the world alone every now and then. Get to know yourself and the way you adapt and respond to it differently as you age and mature. I do believe that the peace and comfort we have with ourselves by ourselves, overflows into other relationships in our lives.

Treat yourself! Take yourself on a date. Go see a movie. Go eat and have a drink alone. Go to a market. Take a stroll with some ice cream. People watch. Travel and explore a new place and test your comfortability.

Simply give yourself some mental and emotional breathing room to be, know, learn and enjoy YOURSELF.


A couple of verses that speak to the things I have learned and continue to learn and discover about myself during my "me time."  
But let it be the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of god.  
-1 Pet 3:4 
So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.
-Colossians 3:12-14
