You know that one friend you don’t like to go out to eat with because of their dietary restrictions? Tell them to get the our new Mushrooms and Grits (it’s both vegan and gluten free).
Still no ketchup though…..
Take yourself out on dates. It’s important. 💗
Growing up I was pretty shy. I didn’t like to try new things unless I was with someone else. I’ll admit I’m still that way at times, but now it doesn’t stop me from doing things I want to. When I went to college I started forcing myself to do things that scared the shit out of me. I hated talking to strangers, so I got a waitressing job. I also chose a major that required to me conduct interviews and go to places you’d never find me at—like city hall or a homeless shelter downtown Minneapolis. 😳
After college I moved to LA (which is a feat in itself as I grew up in a town with a population of 2000ish) I started taking myself out on dates. Not bc I was single, but bc I was kind of terrified to venture out into the city on my own. I would find little cafes and restaurants nearby and force myself to get out of the house, even if I was nervous. What I found out was that it’s really not that scary. It’s actually very empowering and fun. 💃
Plus, you get to CHOOSE the food. I’m a very easy going person (I will eat anything any everything), so I usually let whoever I’m with choose the restaurant. But not when I take myself out. ☝🏻Then I get to go wherever I want, whenever I want. To places like @cafelaurent where they serve pears wrapped in smoked salmon. 🤤 Shout out my girl @daisyp_13 for the recommendation. And free dental cleaning! 😁
Moral of the story, if there’s something you want to do, just do it! Especially if it scares you. That way, when you don’t die sitting alone at the movie theater, you’ll see that it’s actually really fun and you might even make a habit of it. Who knows? Anyway, thanks for reading along! I’m partly posting this as a reminder to myself. 😜 Tell me a fear you’ve over come below—or send me a DM if you don’t want to post publicly. Take care, friends! 🙏❤️
