The looking good. Feeling good edition.
It never ceased to amaze me when I look at my calendar and see it so booked up with events I am doing, or attending. When it was not that long ago when my calendar was empty. This week was no exception. This week I was all over the place. And I loved every minute of it.
My adventures this week started on Sunday, where I would attend a fundraiser and do card readings at them. The event was a wonderful experience that really opened the doors to new things, and allowed me to learn and grow more. That is what life is all about. Allowing us to learn and grow. Sadly many of us refuse to do that, and we end up facing the same lesson over and over again. From there I would go to a metaphysical meetup at a place I have taken classes at, and that was another great night, with great conversation, with like minded people. It is a wonderful feeling to be around like minded people. The laughs, and the conversation, are so much fun. I would have never thought I could ever attend something like that and I am so glad that I am able to do it. They have changed my life for the better. I have changed so much over the last couple months, from this timid person unsure of himself, to moving forward with a purpose. And I couldn’t imagine my life any other way now. This is my life. I am happy for it.
Then Tuesday I would go out with some friends that I have met at classes and we would go and have some tea, and have more fun conversation, and we even do some oracle card readings with each other. And I had one of, if not the most delicious Chicken Cobb salad I have ever had. I had it at a diner of all places. Do not sleep on diner food, is apparently the moral of this story. Wednesday I would go to class and have another fun night, and did another card reading for someone that really enjoyed it. With Thursday and Friday being the only days I did not go out and do something.
That there was an action packed week and I could have easily said that was my week, but I have been having fun doing things on Saturday that I was not going to stop there. This time it was my niece’s birthday party and she was having it at a Water Park at a hotel. Some place called Coko or something like that. I had never been in there before. It was strange doing a water park party in the middle of October. I was wearing a sweatshirt and pants and they were splashing in their bathing suits. I will say, I did wish I had my trunks, it looked like a lot of fun them going through the tubes into the pools. There’s always next time and now I am in a place where there can be a next time.
After that fun I went to my old high school to watch my niece do some cheers during the game. It’s crazy to realize that this is 20 years since I graduated high school and I was seeing this place for the first time in over a decade. It sure made me feel old. Luckily they did not cheer for long as the sun was brutal out there and did not have to be outside for too long. Since there really was not much shade to hide in. After we left me and my sister went to get something to eat… And I think that may have been the first time I’ve ever just gone out to eat with just me and my sister. It was a nice change of pace in my life. No chicken Cobb salad as they did not have the Cobb salad but I did get the maple mustard salmon which is also delicious. After lunch me and my sister went shopping all over the place while I was looking for a bag and eventually after a few stops was able to get something I liked. All together my and my sister spent the day together, 7 hours, of fun, adventures, and conversations. Something I would have missed out on doing when I was younger. I missed so much in my life, when anxiety and fear was running me life.
I am glad and happy that I was able to get my life back and live it and enjoy it. These are the moments and memories I will have for the rest of my life. I am completely thankful and over the moon.
