I have a confession to make. I’ll start by saying that through my life and work, I talk to a lot of people and I meet a lot of people. And so many of these people do not feel the way I do so I’m going to confess…..
Now before I confess, I will tell you that I don’t always feel this way but I really do en-JOY the opportunities I’m talking about, when they present themselves.
Okay here it goes… are you ready?
Okay here it goes …………..
I love being alone with myself!!!!
I think it’s AWESOME in fact. I en-JOY my own company!
So today I pondered on this and here is what I came up with.
I’ve come to the conclusion that the more that I love myself, the more that I like being alone with myself. I truly am my own best friend and hanging out with a bestie who is unconditional in their love and who is excited about their life is the best ever!
For the most part, I don’t even like music on and I rarely watch TV unless it’s something I am learning like a webinar or an uplifting movie. I LIKE being alone with my own thoughts because I use my thoughts as tools and use them wisely. I use them to bring me JOY and pleasure and to get excited about the gratitude I have for my life and my day. Now, of course, I don’t always feel this way and yes I do beat myself up sometimes, but not like I used too. Yep, this bestie has gotten smarter and wiser as she progresses along in life.
The other cool thing is when you are alone, there is no one to argue with or to have confrontation with, unless of course you are not being your own best friend, then you might need to revamp that to make life more smooth and to let ease and grace into your life.
And do you know what else I love? Going out to lunch by myself!!!! Again not always as I enJOY the company of others but I will tell you I enJOY my own company just as much and when I want to just dig in to all that delicious food I don’t have to stop and be polite and chat! LOL! Truth! Let me at this amazing food! Go for it Bestie! 🙂 When the wait staff ask me if anyone is joining me today, I say “Yes my best friend, ME”.
I hope that this confession inspires you to love yourself more, use your thoughts wisely, and to be your very own best friend… BFF … forever and for always and in all ways!
I send you who is reading this nothing but Blessings and I wish for you a JOY filled day.
