Well this was quite an interesting holiday for me seeing that it was one that I disliked the most. Almost every year, I make a failure of an attempt to make it a wonderful night with someone special. This year I had thought I planned everything quite well. Made reservations at LA Prime and had the table we were going to be seated arranged with flowers and a gift. It took alot of string-pulling, but somehow the reservations and planned event was set. Now all there was to do was to get her to go. She mentioned earlier that she wanted to be surprised so I thought it would be a good idea to sort of try to get her on the fly. That’s where it goes downhill. I call her as planned and she came down looking amazing. Me thinking wow was she really already planning that something fancy would happen? Good! We said our “Hi’s” and then I told her flat out. Come on. We’re going to be late. As soon as I said that I knew something is wrong. The color of her entire aura changed and it wasn’t bright at all. Turns out someone set something up also a called it a “surprise” (Yup that was the surprise she was referring to the whole time). I didn’t have the heart to be mad or frustrated. I just felt…blah. After a short time I left without her. Driving aimlessly around not knowing what to do. I called my reservation and told them I had to cancel. Fortunately, the lady was understanding and didn’t charge me anything for it.
You would think by now…aww man you messed up bro. Yea I did, but promise it get’s better. Ready? Set? CONTINUE!
I end up going to K-Town because it always settles me down and puts me in a better mood. I meet up with my two friends/co-workers for M.V.P. Tintin and Danielle and we just talked and drank wine the entire night. In the back of my head I couldn’t help but to think about what happened. Why did I try to plan? Shouldn’t you have already known this would happen? What’s going to happen now?
It seemed like Tintin could read my face because he then started to talk to me about dance and what I want to do out of it. After talking with him about how I should be setting up my future, it hit me. I’m in the right position to start my path! It’s time to start focusing on teaching and dance that I shouldn’t be fretting over this like the way I was doing. After I left, I really felt good! Mind was past my problems. Heart is focused on the true goal. Eyes opened to the path ahead.
I was beyond happy and motivated by spending time with Tintin and Danielle AAAND new friend, Kelly. They helped me not think about it. They helped me refocus. They helped me DRANK! (hahaha) But really, I really do feel blessed that God has given me the opportunity to have people like this in my life. I’m pretty sure if I didn’t meet up with them I would have done something regrettable.
SOO that’s my story! At first it goes horribly wrong but because of that event I now have a refocused mind and heart for my passion. I was reminded that even in dark times there will always be a light of friendship waiting to help you out.
TO MY FRIENDS! CHEERS!!!!!!!!!!
