A Solo Signing

Outings alone means a lot of selfies, you'll need outside help for a full body shot.

I remember when I was in my early twenty's explaining to someone how I never really felt like I fit in, to be honest I had the same conversation last week. This has got to be one of my best traits, it has allowed me to have some of the greatest experiences. The downside to accepting my differences would have to be having to have these experiences alone. I have interests in some things my riding partners aren't into, often I miss events because I don't have company. Why do we do this to ourselves?  

This time I sucked it up and went to a book signing by myself. I turned on my GPS (it was a bit far) put on some music and was on my way. I was a little late because I was so nervous and didn’t really want to go alone but I made it in time for the wine and delicious finger food. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The end was a little weird standing around feeling awkward, but after speaking to the author, Sophie Kinsella and taking a photo, it was over and it wasn’t bad at all.

Attending social settings are a lot harder than going to dinner or a movie alone, but I felt so proud of myself and would do it a hundred times over.

Is it hard for you to attend events by yourself? I want to know!
