New Year’s Evening

It was a cold, rainy evening. I had a cold, and I didn’t really wanted to go out. That was my comfort zone claiming its place. I’m glad that I didn’t let it take over.

This New Year’s Evening was one to remember. My partner and I made some home made pizza. The pizza base was made of cauliflower (?). I didn’t knew it existed, and it tasted like the real thing.

I was recovering from a week of poor sleep, and I passed out on the couch. We were watching a podcast on YouTube. By the time I woke up, I believe two hour episodes passed by. 

To my surprise, my partner made home made chocolate chip cookies. I’m not a fan of sweets, but these cookies were good. No bias. 

We decided to go to Balboa Park. The park was close to empty, and it was gorgeous. We started taking lots of photos. It was an awesome experience.

What’ve I learned was to not let my comfort zone take over without asking myself the reason why. Of course, it seemed natural to stay home because I was ill and sleep deprived. I stopped for a second to think why it seemed logical.

It turned out that my reasoning was not enough to justify that decision. I decided to go out and have a good time with my partner. Worst case scenario, if I started feeling worse, we could just drive home.

In short, when you make a decision based on your comfort zone, ask yourself why, and see if you can justify it. 

I’ve been able to sleep well for a couple of days. I’m slowly returning to baseline. I’m excited for the future.

Wish you health, success, and strength for this New Year.

Thank you for reading,
