160. What’s the next big step you need to take?
To plan a trip around the world. This, of course, is a several step process. I am currently concentrating on the first, which is setting up my restaurant to be run remotely. Some would say it’s “impossible”, but they don’t know me very well.
161. If today was the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are about to do today?
Of course not, I wouldn’t be working. With that said, what I am doing today is not in vain, it is a step in my path to conquer my dreams. Everyday I try to make the choices in my life by asking myself, “will this simplify my life, get me closer to my goals, inspire someone or bring happiness”. The answer leads the way.
162. If today was the last day of your life, who would you call and what would you tell them?
My mom: “I felt a sense of security knowing your unconditional love. Know that I have had an adventurous and full life, no regrets. I hope that all the memories we have shared will bring you joy and you realize that even though I am not here, I am with you.”
My husband: “I loved you the best way I knew how, but I wish I could have done better. I should have held you longer and said ‘I love you’ more. The experiences we have shared have been some of my most cherished. I hope you think of me every time you eat something bizarre, have a new adventure or enjoy a nice bottle of Zinfandel. Never forget me, but also find happiness with someone who supports and loves you like you deserve.”
My best girlfriend: “Thank you for always telling me like it is instead of just telling me what I want to hear. That is true friendship. We have been through so much together and I will never forget your support. I would be looking down on you sending you angels of happiness for you and your girls.”
Okay…now sobbing like a baby…
163. Who do you dream about?
Brad Pitt in Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Actually, I don’t dream too often and when I do it is loosely related to whatever is on my mind when I go to sleep. I can’t tell you how many times I have woken up in a cold sweat dreaming about a line out the door of my restaurant, trying to cook all the meals by myself and angry customers throwing tomatoes at me.
164. What do you have trouble seeing clearly in your mind?
The end of the path. I have trained my mind to be in present moment, so visualizing what I want my long-term future to look like is extremely difficult.
165. What are you looking forward to?
My next major travel adventure, which will be to Spain and Morocco. I can’t wait to ride a camel, get a henna tattoo and be engulfed in Spanish cuisine. Right now, I am completely obsessed with the planning of this amazing experience, because it builds the anticipation.
166. What is the number one thing you want to accomplish before you die?
To create a lifestyle that allows me the freedom to travel around the world.
167. When is love a weakness?
When it is blind.
