I’m not quite sure but the idea of commitment right now at this point in my life scares me. Not that anyone is there in the first instance and the only thing I’ve really commit to is an overpriced two year iPhone 7 contract. *sigh*
BE YOUR OWN BAE
I’m slowly getting out of my quarter-life crisis and a few things have happened in 2016 to make me realise life is way too damn short. I can happily admit I’ve come into my own this year; I’m slowly learning to go with the flow and if it means flying solo – who cares? I’m my own bae. Here are a few ways you can be your own bae too:
Treat Yo’self – Coffee, those shoes you’ve been eyeing up for week, a new book. As much as I’m trying to save, it’s also important to not completely deny yourself…
Dine Solo – It’s cheaper than splitting the bill, you often get better service, order as much or as little as your like. Food is fuel.
Invest in yourself – Mind, body and spirit.
Travel – Staycation or vacation; getting out of your everyday surroundings is the best way to gain perspective, challenge yourself and find inspiration. I travelled solo to Milan earlier this year and it really helped me find confidence within myself and realise that my hand doesn’t need to be held every step of the way.
Self Care – Can’t stress the importance of this; look after YOU. I wrote a post here and here where I’ve spoken about my favourite self-care tips.
Volunteer– Help others, it doesn’t have to be monetary donation, sometimes the gift of time is greater.
Learn/listen to something that discuss relationships in a positive (and negative light) e.g
The Receipts Podcast – I absolutely LOVE this series featuring four smart and funny girls discussing the perils of relationships.
Sex & the City – One of my guilty pleasures; I reckon I’m the Miranda…
BKChatLDN – Be warned some of the opinions on here are trash ♻️
At the end of the day, the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. If it means taking a break from certain things, people to find out what you want or don’t want, so be it.
