I Ate at a Restaurant By Myself for the First Time...and Loved It!

My mom got sick on the way to brunch and cancelled at the last minute so I decided I'd be a big girl and just eat by myself.
  1. As independent as I am, social anxiety has always kept me from taking this step.
  2. It was surprisingly relaxing.
  3. I read a book on my phone and ate a lovely brunch.
  4. If anyone was looking I didn't notice. I was enjoying myself too much.
  5. I even lingered over my coffee after the check.
  6. The best part is this is my first step to traveling by myself.
