– Are you lonely?
– Not at all. But I am very much alone.
The bartender was pretty surprised.
Funnily enough, he came back after an hour of me happily drinking beer and eating pretzels.
‘You do seem very happy, I don’t know how you do it’ – he said bringing me heart shaped haribo sweets
Well, it’s quite simple:
* I actually finally like myself, so hanging out in my own company is pretty entertaining- I don’t get to do it as much as I would like to!
* I’m drinking beer while eating carbs and catching up on emailing people I care about – what beats that?
* There’s some magical strength that increases my confidence level when I know I am not lonely when I’m alone
…and when you know you can do that, the spectrum of things you know you’re capable of increases.
Also, who knows – you may get some heart shaped sweets out of the whole thing,too! ??
