Have you noticed there is a destination happiness? Yes, I’m not the first to proclaim it nor am I the last but I am one that can make it momentarily answered while you work out the negatives in your moment, day, week, year(s), or whatever time element you care to wrap around this time reference… to each their own.
Mine will be placed around getting my body under control so my life can proceed on to the next moment of happiness. Being homebound is an old norm that I’m not keen on too much these days.
I lived inside in seclusion till I came out in remission in 2017. I was in a flare that lasted on and off for three years then it spiraled into this new space of being in remission for quite a bit of time and I’m still here. However, this new problem my blood has about remembering it wants to stay in my body is a problem so until I can pull it together, I am going to look at this food and say that my next destination will be to go back out to dinner and eat some delicious Italian food and enjoy my beverage of choice with people that I love.
Experiences are the glue for me in life. Material possessions are great and all but let’s face it. I may be the last woman that is a professional or blogger that doesn’t own a Louis Vuitton… I am rough with my items in my overscheduled life as I run from place to place so I don’t spend my money on things that can get roughed up in transit.
Where I do spend money is at restaurants. Food is the ultimate gathering because let’s face it, we all eat. Eating with others is stimulating because you get to try bites of food if they share it with you and you get an outside source that is giving commentary on your life and theirs. Being that eating is intimate, I tend to eat with my most trusted loves in my life; husband, friends, and family.
Bringing my mentor and sister to Sarino’s of Louisville in Germantown was a high point for me going into this new season as we caught up on all things personally and professionally. She’s one of the very few people I can say anything to and know it doesn’t leave her heart because she guards me like none other. This is my next destination… to spend more time with those nearest and dearest to my heart.
It may sound silly but I don’t mind. It’s my own life and I choose to do live my best one with “we” experiences because I’ve lived all the “me” experiences and the new ones will never stop the future from approaching but the “we” ones make my heart soar.
We had a great evening. If you haven’t been to Sarino yet to have a “we” experience, what are you waiting for?
