Big Easy Cafe

I am a Cajun food addict and now my husband is too! We love all the spices, thick sauces, and of course the seafood. Nothing has beaten the Cajun cuisine I’ve eaten in New Orleans, but we found a spot here in San Antonio that has brought those flavors to us. It’s like a bit of good ol Louisiana right here in SA. Aside from the food being yummy, the staff is great as well. As soon as you step foot inside Big Easy Cafe everyone is friendly and ready to make you feel right at home. My husband and I each picked a different dish (pictured at the bottom.). We were so stuffed there was no way we had room for dessert. As we comfortably enjoyed our lunch, it almost felt like we were in New Orleans listening to some live Cajun music playing. We totally recommend Big Easy Café & will be back soon! To learn more about their catering services, live music events, and view their menus, please visit their website at: www.bigeasycafesa.com

Loneliness

Loneliness is an interesting feeling. Just a few weeks ago I was on the beach; it brought back a feeling of loneliness. The last time I had been on that same beach, I was lonely. I have many friends, a great family, and many would be surprised that I would even feel that way. I think at the time when I was at that very same spot, separated from my husband, trying to get my business going, I sort of isolated myself from the real world. I needed to let go of all the heartache and pain that had been troubling me. That is exactly what I did too; it took time and wasn’t easy, but it is possible and was done. I started to move on with my life, take charge of my own emotions, and focus on the things that made me happy. Before I knew it, the loneliness started to fade. I think I made myself feel lonely because I was not happy with all that was going on in my life. I was using it as a defense mechanism, it felt more comfortable feeling that way, and was easier to deal with the heartache at the time. This past year I have grown so much and I know what I don’t want to be like; lonely is one of those things. This time around as I sat there on the beach with some of the most important people in my life, all that loneliness that I once felt was gone. Not because my heart no longer aches either; I think after you have had your heart broken, a tender spot always remains. That feeling was gone because I chose not to feel that way anymore; I realized all the good I was hiding myself from and didn’t want to do that  because I am not alone, I have so much to be grateful for and many to share it with, and I love too much to keep it to myself. Think about that when YOU ever feel lonely.

Loneliness: Ocean Quotes

  1. Sadness because one has no friends or company. Feelings of depression and loneliness. The fact of being without companions; solitariness.
  2. The quality of being unfrequented and remote; isolation.

 

Us that love the ocean, as beautiful as it is, we often fail to realize how much human emotion is just like it. From the sensation of the sand, the crash of the waves giving you butterflies, the temperature of the water against your skin, and its bold blue color, I strongly believe its natural therapies are healing. Just as the waves can roll onto the shore with ease, they can roll back out and take all of your pain with them to deep sea where they disappear. Think of that next time you are at the beach.
