I love planning events and with maturity I've begun to develop the super power of actually being in the moments I work to create.
My capacity for joy is unreal. Unreal. I get disappointed too, I've just gotten better at not lingering there for long.
Every now and then when ordering drinks I ask the bartender to surprise me. Worst case scenario: "surprise - bad drink". Usually I end up discovering something great that's not on the menu.
