Make Dates With Life & People * Dโ™ฅaโ™ฅtโ™ฅeโ™ฅs *

There is something so special about spending one-on-one time with people that you love and enJOY being with. To this day I can remember back to a time when I had lunch with my Dad, at a little local restaurant. I think this might have been one of the very few times, if not the one and only time, we had lunch together at a restaurant, just the two of us. I remember it clearly. And my father has been gone since 1995! That is how meaningful that seemingly simple lunch was.

Spending time one-on-one with someone else is a beautiful form of intimacy and connection that is absolutely special. โœฟ.๏ฝก.:* โ˜†:** โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ

My daughter Sivanna and I have a Tuesday date where we go out and enJOY some food together before her gymnastics class at 6:30 pm. Usually it is Chinese but sometimes it is Tacos for Taco Tuesday. ๐Ÿ™‚ It really does not matter where we go or if we are even going out to eat, it matters that it is our special time together.

Spending Time With Others is a ๐ŸŽ€ ๐‘”๐’พ๐’ป๐“‰ ๐ŸŽ€

Spending time with others is a gift to both parties, provided the people you are spending time with are a positive encounter. That is certainly a place that I have come to in life. I prefer to enJOY the company of those who reciprocate in lifting each other up and enhancing our lives with conversations of JOY, beauty, and excitement for life, sharing our thoughts on things that make us happy, new projects we are working on, goals, dreams, and anything that feels good. Not to say, I am not available to lend a kind ear, or an empathetic heart, but I do prefer to have those ‘special’ dates with life enhancing partners and where we both feel GOOD after it’s over.

My honey and I have our date night every Friday night. We both look forward to it greatly. We talk nonstop and bounce ideas off each other, we share our philosophies, we share and co-create ideas for what to write about, (we both love to write to express ourselves), we bounce around business ideas, updates, discussions about our daughter, and on it goes.

We love these date nights. โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ Sometimes we go out, sometimes we stay in, sometimes we dance to our own music, sometimes we laugh our a%#es off, and sometimes we have heart to heart talks… and it is all good. It is our special time. It is our date night and it is something we honor.

Our little table at the Lake House where we have had many romantic dinners together.

And I even do dates with myself! Yep. I walk into a restaurant and I tell them I would like a table for one because I am having a date with my best friend ๐Ÿ™‚ I do enJOY immensely having these times with myself. In fact, I enJOY them A LOT!

I love being alone with myself and with my thoughts. I feel so FREE. Free to be ME. FREE to do whatever I want in that time. It is GLORIOUS in fact.

A beautiful Butterfly FREE like ME

I hope you too see the beauty in having dates with life and the people that you enJOY being with. Why not start today and book something for this upcoming week? It can be as simple as sharing a cup of tea with a friend. ๐Ÿ™‚
