I am addicted to the finer things in life. It happened at an early age and stayed as I matured. This includes gourmet food (for the most part), nice clothing and accessories, and a late model luxury car. I could add living in a good neighborhood in a state-of-the-art home and having the best fixtures and furnishings. I love to pursue the arts. All this is actually a fantasy of mine because we can’t have it all. I just want to have “some.” How about you?
I spend most of my idle time pursuing great restaurants, the best wine, recipes, cooking techniques, and new sources of caviar. I threw in that last one to show how broad a range exists in this foodie category. It may sound far-fetched, but in point of fact it is true. I have my preferences but am pretty open to new cuisine and all sorts of delicacies. I love to share my passion with readers who might be of the same persuasion, so to speak. People often ask, “Aren’t you interested in anything but wine and edibles?” “Of course,” I reply. I am into maintaining a proper image of refinery and elegance. This means attending to my shirts and ties, matching shoes and socks, and a trendy watch. Everything gets dry cleaned, pressed and polished (in the case of the shoes). An 18K tie tack keeps my tie neat and in place. My hair is freshly cut on a monthly basis and immaculate. I am a spectacle to behold. Just kidding! It is not vanity to present your best face to the world.
My accessories such as my business bag get the same close attention. You can’t go about your life being stylish unless you address every little detail. I leave no stone unturned to make it clear. My bag gets dirty inside from a change of shoes or a dusty watch case. Outside there are signs of some wear and the bag needs regular care and treatment to keep the leather soft and supple. I keep it looking like new. It takes work to maintain your look, my friend. I imagine the criticism: “you could do better more useful and productive things with your time.” I beg to differ. Looking good beats acting like a slob. I see so many overweight people in torn jeans and ratty tees. Are they really proud of their flip flops? They never leave them by the pool.
I am proud of what I have become. I have worked hard to be the best I can be every day of my life. Everyone should desire the same for themselves. To say that you only live once may be trite, but it is certainly true. Select what is important to you and pursue it with a vengeance. You will regret it for sure if you don’t. I counsel friends, family, and colleagues to follow my lead; and I am now out to recruit you.
