There’s a feeling you get when you love someone or something. Family, friend, lover or your passion; you do feel something. For me, it is a sense of pride in that person. A sense of self-reflection in my career. It is the desire to see your loved one be the most beautiful them they can ever be. The ability to watch it take place, without complaining about the distance. Only to wishfully think you may have slightly contributed to the growth of such an incredible human being…simply because you adore them. To be linked to them is in fact, an honor. ☺
So what happens to you when it goes away? Be it a breakup, a sour business deal; a family bit of drama, a circumstance so specific to your personal life I can’t write about it…or the ultimate and unspoken one, when they leave the earth? I can only speak for myself when I say no matter the level of life exits, I have not handled it well. Not to the best of my ability. I will from now on.
I remember being in school and doing a final. An instructor gave me constructive criticism that was also coupled with a speech on being nervous. He implied had I not been so nervous, perhaps my entrée
would’ve come out better. I actually “lacked” in the places that brought me to enroll in the first place. I was super hurt but I also wasn’t going to disagree. It may be a stretch by far, but I coupled that with love in general: the more love there is for something, the more desire there is to impress before understanding it is in fact, a gift. Not just your talents, but to actually love in general- to have “that feeling” still beat in your heart. So the fear of perfection crippled me before the actual final or critique of my chef. I remembered all of this today. Right now. Everything else is but a memory or a lesson. Sooooo, what is a woman to do?
How about putting our thinking caps on and just go!?! What exactly would happen if we did that, 100%, 365 days out of the year? (Minus 2 good weeks of UH OHs!!! ha ha)
I truly feel that would be something worth loving.
Something worth pursuing.
Something worth the wait. Something worth embracing.
Something or somebody, that if death did do us part then you would be able to at least say, “I did the best that I ever could and I thought of all the beautiful spirits in my life along the way to make any dream I have a reality: close up or from a distance.” That is what I feel today.
Please believe I did in fact toast to this newfound discovery with a rather tall glass of a Mimosa and a deliciously sweet piece of chocolate!!! Don’t judge me 😉 Least not aloud, ha!
Cheers Sweet Friends! May you always remember the beauty in your loved ones; even if they aren’t supposed to be in your life right now, or can no longer be seen physically.

RECIPE for a Mimosa:
Your favorite Champagne
Your favorite Orange Juice
A fancy glass (optional)
I usually do a mixture of half and half, but if you prefer more carbonated drink, add more champagne than orange juice into your fancy glass. I sure hope you do enjoy. Add a frozen piece of fruit to keep your drink cold and for a sweet treat upon the last sip!
A sample chocolate of goodness.
