Treating yourself to a dinner date just might be one of the most empowering, liberating experiences you could ever have. It can be easy to focus on spending all of your free time with friends and family, but time spent alone is equally as important, and shouldn't be overlooked. When you spend time alone, it gives you the opportunity to get to know yourself on a much deeper level. I personally love spending time alone, and it's definitely helped me grow into the woman I am today. In fact, I took myself out to dinner, and it was one of the best dates I've ever been on.
I learned a long time ago how necessary it is to spend quality time with myself — "me time," if you will. I always enjoyed shopping alone and even going to the movies alone, but eating at a restaurant by myself felt a bit weird. One day, I decided to go for it, and treating myself to dinner is now one of my favorite pastimes. Once I got over that awkward feeling of walking into a restaurant and asking for a table for one, I realized that it was exactly what my mind, body, and soul needed.
