My Ultimate Me Date (Thus Far)

One of my most favorite things to do is to go the beach alone. If ever I’d have company, it would be Bubba. But being alone in the beach, just sitting under the sun and watching the water and just listening to the quiet in my head, has been the most wonderful thing I have discovered over the past three or four years.

Lately, since I have limited time and a not-so-flexible budget, I have learned to substitute my solo beach trip to random me dates. At first I would go out of my way to go to places where there wouldn’t be too many people, after all, asking for a table for one in a restaurant usually raises a few eyebrows. But I have learned to enjoy it quite a bit. Sometimes I go on a margarita me date, or perhaps sit in Bag of Beans with just my sketchpad and some pencils, and so on and so forth.

Yesterday, however, I had the ultimate me date thus far….I caught my favorite singer’s concert on my own. It was a strange feeling at first, admittedly, and I came really, really close to not doing it but a friend of mine convinced me to go and she went on to say it would be quite liberating to actually do that. And she was right 🙂

Sure it would have been more fun to have had a friend along, but I realized that if I didn’t go and missed out on the concert (which I PRAYED for for SOOOO long!) that would make me more of a loser than having to have gone alone, right? It was a blast 🙂

I’ve written about Lenka several times already and in those posts I said that her music is just so happy and bubbly and you can’t help but smile when you hear it. Yes, even the songs that are kinda “sad” sound very, very optimistic and cheery.

So last night was an ultimate challenge thus far and I must say, it was well worth it. Happy happy joy joy.

Oh, and I have a new favorite song 🙂
