Adventures in going out: Week 23

The More than meets the eye edition.

This post can only mean one thing, I have succeeded in going in time and have successfully changed the past, without destroying the present. As far as  I know.  However I may have caused the rise of Donald Trump, sorry about that, but hey, I had fun time traveling…

Anyways, this is now week 23. Which, IMHO, is more exciting than the Summer Olympics. It also means it’s another outing into the wilds with only my boomerang, and slingshot. This week I started a little earlier than usual. On Thursday I went out to scope out a store 30 minutes away. People from my meditation class told me about this place, and invited me to a meetup there this coming Thursday, so I decided to check it out ahead of time. Picture that. Going to a random meetup, at a random building, with random people. A year ago that would have sent a shiver up my spine, and I would have been afraid that I had bitten off more than I could chew. I love being at a place where I do not have to hesitate about such a thing, or worry about it, or think of ways to getting out of it. Now I can go out there, and have fun, and meet new people. They are even having an 8 week class there starting in September that I am very interested in attending. I am doing so much, it’s like I am making up for lost time. The store was a lovely little store, easy to get to, and near places I have been before.

Then today I decided to take myself out again and get some fresh air, and some sunshine. Even if it was a little warmer than my liking. I went to a local park, Laurel Acres Park, and walked around for a little bit.Of course while there I ran into someone I work with, that works in one of my stores. The one thing people don’t really want to run into on their day off, people from work. At least I get on well with this individual, and was not my boss. We talked some video games, and then we went our separate ways. While walking out there it looked like the Zombie Apocalypse was upon us, as everyone was walking staring down at their cell phones, transfixed, and pretty much oblivious to the world around them. Kind of sad how dependent we are on technology.

All in all it has been a good week, and I look forward to meeting up with some friends, and make some new ones. The year has been incredible for me. It has shown me I can accomplish much in life, all I have to do is try. It gives me hope for other dreams that I put off for so long, like illustrating a children’s book. One of my life long dreams. And now, I have the courage, and the faith, to work to one day achieve it. Whether it takes me 2, 5, or 10 years. I have hope that one day I will reach that goal. Just need to hone my art to get it to a professional level. I can do that. If I can go on vacation by myself, a few states away, I can do this.
