So I get back to the hotel and there is a lady... a lady who speaks English who says dinner time is at 6. I'm not going to argue... she freaked me out by knowing my name (mind you I'm the only american here).
I show up and at first I'm about to be all American and be like no I won't eat this or won't try that and something amazing happens.... I don't.. I'm a picky eater but this time I just went with it. Now 7 course Japanese meal was not my plan and to be honest I had stopped eating for the day.
But I did it.
One thing I've learned over the years is that if you don't want to spend time by yourself how can you expect someone else to want to spend time.
If you don't love you how can you expect another to love you.
I love me. I realize I am just happy and content being alone but I'm happy and content with others.
To see the growth and to feel it is nuts!
