226. What would you like to change (about yourself)?
I would like to be a better listener, or rather, a retainer of the information I have heard. I can have a conversation with someone and forget what we talked about ten minutes later, whereas, some people can hear something once and remember it for a lifetime. 
 
227. How many people do you love?
Too many to really count. A lot.

228. What’s the best decision you’ve ever made?
Years ago I went on a hunt to find my passion. I was trying just about everything because I knew that there would be one thing that I loved so much that I would want to do it for the rest of my life. During the search I realized that the hunt was my passion. I became addicted to having new experiences and this became my passion.

229. What’s your favorite true story that you enjoy sharing with others?
Since my blog is all about new experiences and adventures, I have many. But, some of my favorites are swimming with stingrays, rappelling into a cave and eating lambs brain on my anniversary. 

230. Right now, at this moment, what do you want most?
At this moment, I want to feel content with where I am in life and the direction it is taking. Also, to concentrate on being happy in the present moment, forgetting about the past and not fretting over the future. That's a lot to tackle! 

231. What are you waiting for? How are you writing your life’s story?
Though I am waiting to be out of debt, for my blog to be a huge success and to have more freedom to create at my restaurant, I am always actively writing my life's story. I am consistently setting baby goals in order to achieve the aforementioned.

232. What makes love last?
Forgiveness, commitment and communication

233. What good comes from suffering?
There is always a lesson to learn through suffering. Most of my suffering has made me stronger in order to deal with the situation when and if it should happen again.

234. What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in the last year?
That trusting yourself is more important than trusting anyone else.

235. Based on you current daily actions and routines, where would you expect to be in five years?
Still owning Sugo Trattoria, but with more freedom to travel, having a line of some type of food product (& a cookbook), continued growth with my blog, dozens of checks off my bucket list and being paid to write about food, travel & new experiences.
