upswing

Things have been going extra-well lately.

I feel healthy and energetic, I'm surrounded by people I love, and BrokeAss Gourmet is in the midst of an unbelievable traffic surge. Every morning I wake up excited about my life.

I get to be creative every day. I get paid to play with olive oil and invent delicious recipes. I chronicle my silly kitchen adventures and people actually want to read about them.

Things are changing inwardly too. Without frivolity taking up space, I feel like I'm getting to know myself in a whole new way. I feel good about how I present to the world, as well as how I am alone.

My friend Anne quotes Rainer Maria Rilke and tells me "No feeling is final," and I know she is right. So I want to encapsulate the way I feel right now. I want to keep it in my spice cabinet (next to my kosher salt and pepper grinder--you know, where I keep the important stuff), so it's on hand in case of a disaster. Or even just a day where I feel not-so-great.

At the very least, I want to make sure that this particular upswing is documented so I can be reminded of it when things look less-than-bright.

I'm waiting for my own upswing, Gabs. I got a haircut, which usually brings good tidings, but we'll just have to wait and see. You post does give me hope, though, which is all I can ask for right now.
