Practical Optimism #1 -- Be Content to Eat Indoor
You know whenever you flip through some home design magazine or pinterest (yes I'm a pinterest addict), there must be some extraordinary designs that are just so gorgeous yet you can't help but think "What if...?" Take this photo for instance. Doesn't if give you the whole "I wish I were there to enjoy dinner with my loved ones and friends"? I hate to break it to you. It's okay this doesn't happen in your life. First of all, there aren't many places in the world that would like you put up all this near a beach unless you have access to a beautiful beach. Second of all, it is a lot of work to bring everything to the beach for the occasion. And let's face it, in one way or another, you are creating pollution and damage to the beach by leaving behind some trash on the beautiful sand. But most of all, life always dish out something we are not expecting no matter how much planning and speculations are put into the decision making.
Because in reality most cases, the party will end up like this...
Be content to eat indoor. Be content with not being strike by lightning and run for you lives. That's just how I roll -- practical optimism and be content with the present moment. Happy Monday!
