“Be alone. Eat alone, take yourself on dates, sleep alone. In the midst of this you will learn more about yourself. You will grow, you will figure out what inspires you, you will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you meet the person who makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it because you are sure of yourself.”
I am so so so in love with this quote! Sometimes I wonder why this simple concept is revolutionary to me. I mean, we are humans and we are supposed to treat ourselves and care for ourselves,right?I guess it is because for a long time caring and treating myself was only validated if done by someone else…someone male to be precise…ah but dates to McFrys, at home and to the salon later, this isn’t making as much sense anymore!
So I am about to have some 85 days of TLC,love, dates,gratitude, growth, dreams, devotion, working…Days of being gentle with myself, adoring myself and looking at myself in the mirror and marvelling at God’s great work…
I will be like: “Chebet what are your dreams? What are your hopes? What are your beliefs ,like really? What are your fears? What’s your 20-year plan? Do you want to have a 20-year plan? What do you love? What are your weaknesses and what do you want to do about them? Breakfast in bed today? Jazz, Saturday night?” Woohoo! Excitos! I think in as much as I am afraid of staying alone and the dangers that may come with it…I can’t wait to date myself and just love Chebet even more.
I think this can also be done when one is in a relationship with someone, I am just happy I will be doing it alone…Here’s to 85 days of extreme self-love, only the boot camp for a lifetime full of it! *clink*(Invisible wine glass taps the wall)
I love you mind body and spirit and I will continue to treat you right! Thank you!
