Yesterday, as planned, I went out to dinner with friends and family. Needless to say, I had a blast. I had washed my hair and tried my luck with flat twists but the results were OK. Washing my hair at home is a battle–a battle in which I always lose.
After failing miserably to tame my mane, I managed to pull it into a pony tail, create an acceptable flat twist, throw on some subtle eye shadow, and proceed with my plans.
*Feeding my Face
It’s always good to be in the company of people who genuinely love you. We shared laughs, smiles, and memories while simultaneously making a few. Just being in the company of my family and friends really makes all that seems so weigh heavy on my heart, easier to bear and deal with. We celebrated and basked in the ambiance of life. So, that gives me an idea.
*My Dinner – Cornish Hen
I didn’t want the night to end but since I had been up since 5AM and went to work from 8AM – 5PM, my body insisted I should get to bed soon. But, as I prepared myself for bed, I thought of ways to reacquire that feeling of joy, happiness, and pure bliss. I’ve concocted a list of places and things to do with my family and friends. I want to be able to remember their laughs, their smiles, their chuckles, and I want to be able to witness their enjoyment through those facial expressions that I know.
To do this, I’ve created a budget. Well, I’ve had this budget since last year and perfected it earlier this month, but I’ve recently factored in these outings that I plan to have with them. And not just for outings, but just so life flows even smoother than now. Looking back, I can honestly say that I’ve come a long way from where I once was and I’m quite proud of my progress. Mentally, Physically, and Financially, I was not as stable as I should have been. While I still have some ways to travel, I’m looking forward to what is to come. And perhaps, you may see a section where I chronicle life’s adventures. Stay tuned!
