Spiritual Healing- Solo Date Night

Solo Date Night


Untitled

I must say that I never thought I would be one of those people to do the whole "I'm gonna go to the movies by myself" kind of thing. Well as they say, there is a first for everything. And to be completely honest, I really enjoyed myself. I said I would be transparent on this blog so here it is: As I've been going through a break-up that is still pretty fresh (about 2 months now), I read a great article that encouraged me to re-learn to love my life- as is. And one thing I know I do love is a good movie. After a pretty busy week at work and a good pick of movies out in theatres for the season, I decided that tonight would be a great night to treat myself to a nice feel good movie featuring some beautiful chocolate people; did you guess it?  The Best Man Holiday!
What a great movie. And damn!  I didn't know that I would need to bring a box of tissues with me. Here I was,  just looking to feel all nice and cozy watching the beautiful people on screen and instead I end up bawling my eyes out half the time. Nonetheless, it was great and I encourage all you ladies (and men) to treat yourself to a night alone. And not be afraid to just BE. And be alone. I feel so refreshed with a sense of peace and self-assurance. Nobody stared me down at the ticket counter when I asked for "1 ticket to the 7:20 showing, please" and no one stared me down as I walked into Theatre 6, and sat in my seat, alone. I also tried to not be that person that nervously searched through their phone to kill the time. I sat, let my mind rest, and waited for the previews to begin.

Okay, wait. There was one lady 2 seats down from me who did give me a few double-look stares. Not sure if she was curious as to why I sat so close to her considering the theatre wasn't that full or if it was because she truly was perplexed that I was there alone. But anyway, I thought it was so cute to see her and some other older black ladies curled up in their seats at the theatres,alone, doing the same as I.

And on the way back home I turned on some Anthony Evans Pandora and soaked a little bit more. Not sure what soaking is? Just check him out, let your head lay back, relax and let God touch your heart.
