A day off (because my manager looks out) to tidy the apartment (because family from Florida is visiting) before going out downtown for dinner (tapas on the patio!). A more perfect midsummer Friday there is not. Especially when you can talk openly & frankly about your life & lifestyle.
It’s beyond rewarding to show my loved ones who I’ve become and what I have to offer the world as a young man. You can appreciate these sort of encounters so much more when you’re not on an endless pursuit of Party.
There is more to life. You can make decisions unhampered. Like instead of ordering shot after cocktail after beer, I can choose whether to order a dessert…or another tapas plate. Tonight I opted for chicken empanadas with guacamole to follow cilantro pork belly & truffle-coated hanger steak, instead of a pastry or cake.
I’m not sure what that says about me, but tonight was a damn good night. Tomorrow…back to gym, or/and a good run. The finest meats money can buy come at a price that has more than just a dollar sign affixed to it.
No complacency; keep it moving forward. Physically, mentally, spiritually. Body mind soul.
