Today marks the end of the first week of my 30 Days of “New”. So, I closed out with a double dose.
I’m normally a buttoned down, collared, dressy shirt or sweater type of woman. T-shirts are usually reserved for exercising or sleeping in. Today I proudly wore a graphic tee that I purchased from a rising entrepreneur. I like the design and colors in the shirt, but I love the motivational words on it “No Days Off-24 7 365”. I’m working on achieving some long-term professional goals so these words remind and inspire me to keep pushing.
New thing number two? Number two wasn’t exactly something that I haven’t done before, but rather something that I hadn’t done in a long while, before today. I had a table for one. I took myself to lunch and not at a crowded fast food spot where I could fade into the background. I enjoyed a quiet lunch where I was able to savor my food and my thoughts. I’m a slow eater so it felt good not to have to eat faster than I care to because everyone else is already finished and waiting on me. There was nice music playing during my meal and I was able to really listen to it and not just hear it, as would have been the case dining with others. Don’t get me wrong though, I enjoy lunch dates with my husband, friends, and family, but “a table for one can be fun” too.
I know for some these might seem like small things, but I’m the type for whom the “little things” mean the most.
Okay sappy quotes finished. Day 8 awaits, talk to you tomorrow.
