Debbie: Going on a Date.. With Myself!


I miss going on a date with myself, so I decided to go for it today. Among other things, it really helped me reconnect to the fact that I am the only one that can make me happy. Happiness is a choice, and to depend on someone else, or some circumstance, for it, is not my thing. What also makes me happy is spontaneity – the excitement of not knowing how the day will unfold, and being open to possibilities. And so it started…after work, I walked around the neighborhood, from the World Financial Center down Greenwich until I wandered into Soho. Holy Smokes – most of the trail was all unfamiliar terrain – novelties! It’s  like you are in another city, in another country… as if you were on vacation! I loved every second of exploring it. I deliberately took different, unknown routes to get myself lost on purpose. Thank gosh for GPS, when the time comes to find my way back!  There is no more need to depend on a guy to be your GPS. Anyway, I ended up finding the perfect spot for dinner due to it’s name: Principessa! Italian for “Princess.” So enticing!

I guess I was attracting positive energy with my smile, because the waitress, Anna, immediately brought me over a glass of Prosecco on the house. I finished it in 5 minutes, lol.

I ordered some yummy food, and then decided to go with the elixir that never fails to make me feel good – the one and only Bellini!

Although the date was intended to be spent by myself, I found myself calling friends and having deep conversations. I am reminded of the fact that fulfilling friendships are a big part of a fulfilling life.

On my subway ride back, I ran into a cute baby Pomeranian!

At home, I spoke to my mom on the phone, which was good.

Then, I spoke to my boyfriend. In those moments, I am reminded of how lucky I am to have someone like him.  I can be happy with who I am, and not need anyone, or anything. However, he makes me even happier! ❤
