For lunch the hubby and I met up with 6 friends for All-You-Can-Eat Sushi at Miso Ya.
I had a some of everything pictured.
Last night we went to a surprise b-day party for a friend. The theme was 80s! I am totally a child of the 80s, and I LOVE the fashion from that decade.
I sipped Guinness throughout the night, and ate green curry for dinner.
This morning I made baked eggs (2 eggs, 1 -2 cups chopped steamed spinach, 1 small yellow tomato, Gruyère cheese):
I also juiced some oranges and pears and had a nice fresh glass:
Lunch was leftover green curry. It was even better today!
It was pretty nice out today, so the hubby and I went for a nice leisurely walk while we talked about life, work, the future etc.. I came to a realization today while we were walking. For as long as I can remember I have always longed for something. I have always thought, "Once I have ________ my life will really start - I will be 100% happy." When I was growing up I always thought that once I was living on my own, life would start. Then when I got married and we lived in an apartment, I always thought that once we bought a house, I could really start living and I would be SO happy. Then we got a house. Then I wanted a permanent position at work. And once I got that I figured life would start. What I failed to realize was that life was happening the whole time. While I was busy wishing and wanting my life to "start", life was going on all around me. I have heard it been said that we are never truly happy. Once we get what we want, we want something new.
Well, when I was walking today and talking with my hubby, I realized that for the first time in my life I have everything that I want. I am not longing for anything right now. I am 100% happy. For the first time in my life I am not waiting for anything. I am just living. And life is good.
Supper was at the in-law's house today.
We had chicken cordon bleu, wild rice and carrots, with "Sex in a Pan" for dessert:
Do you ever feel like you wish your life away?
Do you ever feel like your life will really start once you have _______?
I have spent so much time wishing and waiting, and I am done with that now.
I want to live and want for nothing. I have everything that I need.
