Change is Inevitable, Might as Well Embrace It

As much as we might not want it to happen sometimes, change is inevitable in all aspects of life. Even though change is hard, it’s always best to embrace it since not doing so will just give you more problems in the long run.

I went out to happy hour at The Dublin House to say goodbye and I even tried a beer that I’ve never had before. I was not a fan, as I’m not a beer drinker. Some things don’t change, but at least I tried.

Its replacement was much better since it offered better food, generous portions and even tried to give a slick presentation of my BBQ Chipotle Chicken panini (originally a wrap, but they made a change for me with no problem). The owner called me “boss” though, which I always find to be phony because I don’t know anyone who naturally would say that.

That was the case when I chose to go to Cafe Picasso to celebrate the promotion I mentioned earlier with my girlfriend Beth. We had a three-course meal starting with Mozzarella in Carrozza, which is essentially fried mozzarella that was delicious and just enough for two people.

My main course was called Salmone alla Recchelina, which is described as blackened and pan seared salmone served with sea scallops, shitake mushrooms and asparagus finished in a brandy pink cream sauce. You can tell that it all looks delicious (they tasted as good as it appears, too). We had a slice of chocolate peanut butter pie as well. We’re coming back at some point.

The point of my blog is that stepping out of your comfort zone and change shouldn’t be something that’s feared. Change is going to happen whether you like it or not, so you might as well enjoy the ride.
