I was a bit naughty today and I went shopping after I had finished some work. Before going shopping in Liverpool I also treated myself to a solo lunch in one of my new favourite places, Amici. It was a delicious lunch and it gave me time to think. One of the greatest gifts in life is clarity and I really appreciate time to think and gain clarity on certain situations, in order to move forward in the right direction.
I do not mind doing things by myself, even though some people find the idea of dining out alone quite daunting. To me, it is second nature. I have always been very independent and I actually like my own company, living in Germany and France during my degree also made me a lot more independent, because I had to do things by myself or not at all...
Now, I just take a book or my laptop with me if I am eating or grabbing coffee alone and I find that it is a really enjoyable experience. Ultimately, I would rather go out alone than feel that I always need to have somebody accompanying me, as the reality is that friends or family might not always be free at the same times that I am.
It was a scorching afternoon and I just needed cheering up to be honest. The lunch and the shopping certainly did the trick. After all, they call it 'retail therapy' for a reason and I was determined that I would not start the weekend feeling down.
The sun is shining, it is the weekend and I have so much to be grateful for in life, but I guess we all get the blues sometimes. Anyway, I did not buy that much, but I got a couple of cute things in Primark and then stopped off in Starbucks to write this post.
