Let’s speak frankly

So guys … what have you done for yourself lately? Yes, just for YOU!!

When last did you just go out and buy a new shirt, or treat yourself to a good meal or do something that makes you happy? We are allowed to do that kind of thing you know… it is normal and you don’t need to even feel like you are being selfish. You don’t need to feel guilty or that you are betraying anyone. This is not time that you need to work for, or beg for…this is an experience you are entitled to have.

I spent the weekend chilling, getting up late and just absolutely relaxing. That is my kind of treat because it is something I could never do before; you know how something so simple can turn into a full blown war hey…

Took a drive with a very special person to a small little town where I had my senses and my taste buds completely blown away… WOW what an experience it was to taste an Italian pizza that took my breath away and then…oh my hat…the lasagne, it was so good I thought I had died and gone to Italy – yip sorry, I don’t think heaven could make such a good lasagne.
Let me just add here, I had lost my love for food and taste experiences a long time ago…food was pretty much something you had to do in order to stay alive… everything tasted the same and it was all bland and very boring. This from someone who grew up with a chef as a mom and who personally loved cooking and making all sorts of goodies. I know, it is very sad but oh so true…

I cannot remember when last I got excited about food…just didn’t happen for me, but then my experience on Saturday awoke something in me that I thought I had lost completely. The ability to get and be excited about simple things again without feeling stupid. Without feeling like I had to justify my reaction…without feeling like I was breaking some international bloody law.

Guys just get out there and do something, it doesn’t matter how random it seems, just do something that you enjoy or haven’t done for yourself in a awhile. Allow the experience to wake you up again, something that will allow you to feel, and something that will allow you to see and feel the excitement of the little boy inside…

I know right…it sounds crazy to get excited over something so small and seemingly stupid, but it is important that you do something for you on a regular basis or you will wake up one morning and realise that you are no longer, you don’t know yourself anymore because you are nobody.

Get out there and go and experience something awesome!!! Today, don’t wait till tomorrow because that is how you ended up here to begin with…
