Taking time to get to know yourself and even take yourself out on a date are total confidence builders. So if you’re down to read more, please do, but you can also listen to our latest podcast episode here.
I recently went to a book tour event for Emma Lovewell’s new book Live Learn Lovewell, and it was not only fun, eventful, but also inspiring. She is a human with many skills, but also caring, kind, and self-aware.
She takes time to get to know herself. Date herself. Find time to do things that make her a better human, partner, friend, and family member.
Do you take time for that?
I know I did a lot more when I lived in NYC and spoke a bit about that in “do you enjoy your own company” here.
The advantages I see for dating yourself include:
- Appreciating who you are
- Putting yourself as a priority
- Being mindful with your time
- Understanding your own needs and wants
- Enjoying your own company
- Doing the things that make you happy
I know I have some hobbies, that not everyone else does. So I take time for myself each week — whether it a couple hours or a whole day. It depends on what I think I need in order to be a better version of myself. Is it always feasible, each week. Maybe not. But finding time even, to read a book in the evening before bed – time for me, with me, is important.
When I am a better version of myself, I am better for the people I care about in my life too.
When are you taking yourself out on a date?
Until next time, #radiatedaily
