AN 'AW, ISN'T THAT SWEET' EDITION OF READERS ALWAYS WRITE!!
Laurenne left a comment on my 'Saturday Musings' post, where I talked about one of the feeders of my last 'shake' being the Jill who flirted with me at the fitness center and my annoucing I was going to take part in challenge to feel and think positive thoughts for the next 3 1/2 months:
i love this challenge! And I think so many others (almost everybody!) needs to do the same when it comes to being a pushover.
You shouldn't do anything in life that you don't want to do.
Easy to say!
Also, I can't believe nobody's flirted with you! Don't believe it at all. My mom saw your comments on my blog and said you were (in her words) a hunk! ha! Moms.
Aw, isn't that sweet! I am actually fine with no one flirting with me... and I am also cool with not meeting people for right now. Part of the confustration that I felt in talking about Exercise Jill, is that I am going to have to adjust to really being alone soon. The simple things that I have enjoyed doing are things that did not require another person's company, such as going to Applebee's and gorging out on their $20 bucks for 2 entree's deal. I like the idea that I can hold that out as a 'carrot' at the end of a good week or keeping all my appointments and training dates.
Sometimes I do think about how cool it would be to have company... go to a movie or go for a walk in the crispness of the early fall... and how fun it would be to look forward to spring and pinic lunches (I can deal, but I don't like the winter... if I don't have to go outside for those three months, I think I won't!!) with a person who had the potential to be someone special to me... but I have had plenty of tries at that and that isn't a fail I am particularly looking forward to rediscover.
For instance, I think Nebraska and me will always have issues with understanding one another. That is cool between friends because there is no big problem when someone stomps off mad... even best friends have to take a break from one another. But when you mix in the relationship part and the supposed added intimacy of being boyfriend and girlfriend...
Yeah, maybe there were other women than Jill whose attention I may have attracted and unknowingly ignored or knowingly dismissed. But as I hope to rediscover during the next 3 1/2 months of this challenge, is how much I do really like myself and my own company.
