Hello beautiful people,
Many times I go out for drinks with people and they’re shocked that I drink alcohol, eat steak among other things, I find their reaction funny for sure but I get where they’re coming from, I mean, have you seen my instagram! One time this dude actually called me pretentious, ouch!
Am choosing to share here with hopes that it positively impacts on your life, I know a lot of you can’t bear the thought of giving up your hip-pop music video esque life for veggies and 10:00pm bed time, I mean what is life without happy hour LOL
First of all, YOU’RE ALLOWED TO INDULGE!
My healthy lifestyle is by choice, a decision without any external influence so no dude, am not pretentious!
Here is a little truth about my lifestyle: The things that keep me grounded are sometimes boring yet I appreciate them more than those that get me high on life and that’s because when am grounded, am at my humblest, collected, grateful, kind and non afraid to express my emotions, I feel so confident and hopeful and that in itself is fulfilling.
Eventually, nature calls, my age group is famous for being in “the bathroom getting higher than the empire state” any given weekend. Sometimes I talk to older people and they tell me the things they did at my age and I’ve got to admit, sometimes I crave staying out all night dancing to single ladies in six inch pumps.
When I crave, I go ahead and do it but now that am older, I know better not to down 6 tequila shots at a go and all that comes with it, oh what a time to be alive! My go to is a Gin and tonic and if am feeling very adventurous a spicy margarita or a tequila shot. I always keep it at a minimum and know when it’s time to go to bed talk about experience! But, once in a while, I go overboard, these things happen, but instead of beating myself up, I simply just go back to my healthy lifestyle[80%], doubling the effort because for me, it’s not worth the anxiety, it’s just not!
So please enjoy for as long as you keep your indulgence at a minimal level. Life is all about finding the right balance and for me its 80/20. There is nothing pretentious about that and I don’t hide it! Check my snapchat for evidence
