Twenty four seconds, yeah, you better not stop. You got twenty four seconds, can you beat the shot clock?
Ella Mai's song has been stuck in my head all weekend. Maybe it's because I was in the Queen City (Charlotte, NC) for NBA AllStar weekend. Maybe it's because I put SO much pressure on myself. Whatever the case, I feel like I have been wasting a lot of time lately. Time that I could be spending enjoying life and finding new things to love.
I love to travel! I love hanging out with my family! I love positive energy! Oh yeah, and I LOVE food! Why would I not be doing things that I love?
It was a last minute decision for me to go to Charlotte. I was joking on my Facebook page about going. And then I thought, why not go? So in a mad dash, I got my kid situated for the weekend, told my sister I was coming, and wildly packed a suitcase and hit the road. I. Had. A. Ball.
I made tons of not so smart eating decisions but I regret NOTHING. I ate some truly amazing food. I need to spend more time in Charlotte! We saw a lot of celebrities...most of which I didn't recognize until someone said their name. Cam Newton was randomly walking around Uptown, but apparently he does this very often. I fan-girled a little bit.
If any of my readers are familiar with Charlotte, please let me know some of your favorite things to do there. With it only being an hour and a half away from me, I feel like I'm going to make the trip more often. And not just to go to Ikea!

|We saw some ballers. Ben Simmons and Karl-Anthony Towns|

Charlotte, I love you. And I will see you again, very soon! I'm making a personal goal to enjoy life more. No more just running down the shot clock. We have to make sure we are winning the entire "game."
