Hi friends the title of this episode is Date Night, let’s jump right into it. Before I begin I have a disclaimer. I enjoy my wonderful podcast platform but I do limit what I share on here regarding my personal life. I was given permission to discuss my date with you guys by the gentleman who inspired this. When he found out about the Beauty & Soul Podcast he suggested I do an episode so here it is.
So friends, yes I went on a date this past weekend but it wasn’t a regular date. It was a blind date …kinda… yeah I know. Initially, I wasn’t nervous at all. Lately my fearlessness has been on another level. I have been slaying goals without hesitation. I wasn’t hesitant to go out until he started getting closer to pick me up. Then I was like what did I just sign up to do??? Too late to cancel though. Fast forward the date was definitely the best one I have been on. I will keep the details of our date between him and I. I’m glad I didn’t allow myself to back out because I was definitely about to. This unexpected situation caused me to think about how many other opportunities or relationships I may have missed out on by talking myself out of moving forward. Why do we get in our way? I believe unintentionally we may think less of ourselves then we should. Now this can stem from various reasons, we all have them, but ultimately we are in charge of what we believe about ourselves. I’m grateful for my date because I realized how much I have changed. I raised the standards for myself which in turn demands another level of respect of people. I remember going out with guys and having a horrible time but not speaking up. Somewhere in the past I lost myself and thought it was okay to accept whatever was offered to me not realizing I could get 20x better. But I know you’re wondering how did I get here:
- I stopped playing games with myself. Sometimes we aren’t getting what we want because there are broken pieces within ourselves we need to fix. Until you get real about the harsh realities of your mess you will never experience bliss. Not in your life, love nor business. It’s okay to be lost… when you find yourself you’ll love and appreciate yourself even more. Besides it’s hard to fully love someone if you aren’t in love with yourself.
