Weekly Inspiration: The Importance of “losing”

I came across this story submitted by our member Diane Genovese, about the importance of losing and teaching your kids that it is OK to lose as long as they get up and keep on walking to their goal. We live our life scared to lose, therefore sometimes we don’t take the necessary steps because we are afraid to make mistakes, and by being scared we do not live life completely. When I was little, I was always afraid of making mistakes because it would lead to losing but as years flew by I realized that it is ok to lose, it is ok to make mistakes, it is ok to fall, sometimes even necessary, as long as you stand back up and keep on going.

Let’s have dinner on top of a tree!

I am not only talking about organically grown food but also an amazing location. Let’s throw the restaurant on top of a tree, and make sure that it is by the ocean. You think I am joking? I am serious! This unique restaurant sits on top of a massive tree’s huge branches, about 20 ft above the ground, overlooking the ocean. Don’t worry, you don’t need to climb a tree to get to your table, the restaurant has spiral stairway and an inbuilt tree trunk elevator. It specializes in locally grown and organically harvested foods brought straightaway from the farms. The restaurant serves not only Japanese food, but also Thai, Korean, Chinese and even Indian.
