I took myself on a solo date today – to see the movie Safe Haven.
While sitting in the theatre waiting for the movie to start I thought about how things are so much different in movie theatres for me today than they were 5+ years ago.
In the past – I would have been sitting there with a LARGE or even EXTRA LARGE buttered popcorn and a 32 ounce diet coke.
Today I was sitting there with nothing to eat or drink. I was just there to see a movie – not eat or drink.
In the past – I would have been stuffed into the seat. At 300 pounds, I typically ‘overflowed’ most seats – whether in restaurants or theatres. I would have been uncomfortable. I would have been encroaching upon the person sitting next to me and using some of their space.
Today I sat comfortably in my seat, room to spare, crossing my legs with ease and thoroughly enjoying the movie.
It was a good day.
Color me grateful.
