Date & Pictures From the Weekend

I don't want to jinx myself, but in case you were wondering, my date went well.  I have had a permanent smile on my face ever since Saturday night.  

He's nice, he was a gentleman, good conversation all evening, he paid for dinner (lately, guys never pay!) and he sent me the cutest texts after the date.  I went home, turned on some Taylor Swift and danced around my apartment like a teenager. Embarrassing.

He is ridiculously nice.  So much in common.  His texts make me blush like crazy.  So, being typical Jess, I am thinking this is way to good to be true.  Guys aren't nice.  Guys don't pay on dates anymore. Why would a guy even like me? This whole thing is way too good to be true, so I am sure something will go wrong any time now.  


Then I stopped myself.  These thoughts are SO self sabotaging.  If I constantly am waiting for something bad to happen when things start going my way, I am never going to have good things.  This is the old Jess creeping back in, trying to convince me that I don't deserve good things. I can't push away every good thing that comes into my life. 

So, today I am going to work on reminding myself that I DESERVE GOOD THINGS.  I deserve good things, good relationships and good friendships.  I deserve to be happy, to be content with myself and to have confidence.  I am worthy and deserving just like everyone else.

I deserve someone great, someone who will love me for me, flaws and all.  Each time I have a self sabotaging thought, I am going to remind myself of these things. I have no idea what the future hold for me or when I will meet my Prince Charming, but I am thankful for this weekend.  I was reminded that there are still nice guys out there and that makes me happy.

I genuinely hope I get to see him again and hope he enjoyed the date like I did.  I am happy - and deserving.
