Saying Hi, And Some Thoughts on Indulging

I started my year off antisocial and have decided to end it that way, too. Time to get my head on straight for the year to come — I’m going to work out every day this week, cook healthy tonight, and take some time to myself out in the world.

I don’t have a lot to say yet, as it’s been a strange few days, but I will. :)

I did, however, make myself a promise tonight as I sat there soaking in a hot baby-oil-filled bath, sipping quality rye whisky and eating dark chocolate, and this is that: I will continue to enjoy good things like quality chocolate, but there’s a new rule. If I’m to “indulge”, I will do so in grand and glorious fashion.

Like, tonight, it was only an ounce of chocolate and 1.5 ounces of whisky, but enjoying them in a hot bath made it seem like it was so much more. It’s about quality this year. If I’m indulging, it’s not going to be a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup as I walk home from the bus, but rather a quality dessert shared with a friend, or 80% dark cocoa, or some other fantastic reason I should be cheating for.

Because a life without indulgences is a life lived on the sullen side.

Hope you’re enjoying the season, readers. :)
