Becoming the best version of yourself

Is “One” The Loneliest Number?

Sometimes the words to that old song ring true for all of us.  I’ve never been one very comfortable in going to a restaurant by myself to eat a meal.  I always felt that sitting at the bar alone was like hanging a sign around my neck that says “Can’t Get A Date”!!

You’ve heard of “dog shaming”?  Well this feels like “single woman shaming”.

However, after reading this article today, maybe I”ll try it again.  Maybe the times have become more relaxed?  Maybe since the divorce rate is SO high that there are SO many more of us that it’s become the new norm?

Guess I better charge up the Kindle and download some interesting stories and start being more brave.  After all, a girl’s gotta eat, right?  Or maybe I just need to let you all know where I’m eating and we can all fill that community table?  : -)

    Do what you want to do! No one is judging us.

    Yes! Be brave and comfortable! I spent many years traveling for business, both single and married, eating alone in restaurants or bars. It has changed over the years. How others perceive us is not what’s important. Do your thing–daring greatly, as Brene Brown says!
