Eating lunch alone woohoo!

Talk about a radical change...

Ever since I was little I've never been able to do things by myself. I guess it's because I've never really been alone. I've always had someone with me.

This has created problems for me when it comes down to doing things alone. For example, in high school when my friends wouldn't go to school, at lunch time, I would just skip lunch all together. I would not dare sit alone.

This carried on into adult hood, literally yesterday!

So yesterday, at work, I had to take lunch on my own without my 5 close friends.  Typically, in the past when I've had to do this, I would simply go through drive-thru, sit in my car and listen to the radio. But not yesterday, no sir ree bob.

Yesterday  I went to subway, I love subway...

and instead of taking my food to the car, like am I accustomed to, I sat outside and ate all by myself, woohoo!

I know, I know, you may be thinking what's the big deal. The big deal is that these things are all new to me, and even as small a change as they may seem, it's still a change, and therefore a different outcome is inevitable.

Not only did I sit by myself, which is huge in itself, but because I knew I had to blog about the experience, I wanted to take pictures.

So there I was, surrounded by people, and I started to take pictures of myself, and I didn't care what they thought about me. I didn't care if they thought I was weird. In fact, I kept thinking, they are probably intrigued by me, they must be wondering what are all the pics for (more than likely no one noticed lol). But that's what's great, no one cares! People are too self absorbed in their own insecurities to be worrying about yours. And when you realize this, you will have freedom!

Needless to say, on my way back to work, I felt amazing because I had accomplished something huge for me.

So here are a couple of pics from my adventure, eating lunch alone.

Imagine how amazing your life could be if you just did whatever it is that you've been wanting to do. How would this change impact your life and the lives of others.  In the words of John Lennon, Imagine.. Take a listen to this rendition by ACE..Imagine
