New Beginnings

Posted by The Wine Whore |

There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth… not going all the way, and not starting. -Buddha

Too often does life grip you down a path, running wildly towards something you know you want and can't wait to hold.  Distracted and overwhelmed yet focused on where you are heading, you realize that you forgot to take along something you once cherished.  Until one day you stop, turn around, and see those things you forgot, vaguely lost in the distance. If it's not too late, you can run back and pick them up. If it's not too late, you can start again.  And if it's not to late, you get a chance to turn them into something new.

The man staring at me in the mirror is not the same person I once knew.  He's now a father of two young boys, a loving husband, and a successful leader.  Although he's lost some hair over the years, he's also lost over 50 pounds.   He's traded in his love for fatty steaks for a fondness in fish.   He rigorously trains for an upcoming marathon and exercises religiously.  He's moved into a new house with his family.  He takes every day as a new challenge, striving to love every second of it.

One thing STILL remains the same... He still loves the grape. 

For some time, the decision to begin having kids made it difficult for my wife and I to enjoy wine.  Baby bottles took the place of wine bottles and we now passed out from exhaustion instead of passing out because one of us had just one glass too many.  We deeply love our children and wouldn't change a thing but it took us a while to discover that parenting and wine actually go hand-in-hand.  It took us a while to rediscover our love for wine and carry it with us once again on our journey.

Today, I'm hoping to start fresh from where I left off.  Things won't be the same, they'll be better.  I have a new perspective on life, love, and of course, wine.... and I can't wait to get back to what I mistakenly left behind.  I can't wait to turn this once awesome idea I had into something new.  I can't wait to see what the future holds.

As always, your support on my wine journey is greatly appreciated!  I look forward to hearing again from everyone that used to stop by.  I look forward to hearing how your lives and love for the grape have changed over the years.  I look forward to reconnecting.

I can't wait to see what's out there right now and pick up from where I once left off.  If you are reading this and work at a winery or PR firm and would like to be a part of this crazy adventure, please contact me at thewinewhore@winewhorin.com.  I look forward to hearing from you too!

Until then....
