So, I have decided today was kind of blah. I got a few things done (cough 2 projects!) and then I was done. A rough Monday if you will.
This past weekend was filled with interesting happenings. First off, I think as we all have specific energy that helps gravitate others either away or toward us. It’s almost like seeing people of light and of dark in a sense. For me, I tend to attract some pretty cool people but, they might not necessarily be anyones first choice. I love them! Those are the people who make things happen. For an instance, on Friday night when I was getting my nails done, Nicki was the name of the woman who took care of me. She was going thru some guy issues. I could tell she had something on her mind, so I asked. Sometimes, people just need you to ask! We had an at length conversation about boyfriends, marriage…etc. 🙂 She had a dim light because of all the crap she was going thru…but I guarantee once she eliminates that–she will be in good shape!
Next, my friend Katherine and I ate dinner at a restaurant that has really good sweet tea. We walked in, out of the cold, and had a delightful time. I am sure people thought we might be sauced because both of us together are all giggles and politeness. 🙂 Then the manager came around to check on us and we struck up a conversation about his situation! He was planning a wedding with his 24-year-old fiancée and so we were drilling him on that! How great…then out of no where he asked me if I wanted a gallon of sweet tea! UH HECK YES I DO! My inner child was just jumping for joy! Best part being I got it for free.
The attraction just kept coming thru the last part of our night at Karaoke. While we were up singing, the table right in front of us participated in our singing antics. We were energetic, and just having a blast. AND the one that I had a connection to was named Gopher. He was a regular. We talked about everything. Literally. He probably gave me the biggest complement ever that night. He told me that the reason why I could carry a conversation on with anyone about anything was because I was secure with in myself. That means this stranger could see what progress I made in the last 2 years. That is huge. His light too burned brightly. So did the stage lights though….
OH my did I feel like such a Rock Star up there! “DON’T STOP BEELLLLIEEVVING…..HOLD ON TO THAT FEEELLLING! STREET LIGHTS, PEOPPLLLE!” (excerpt from Journey-Don’t Stop believing) By the end of the night, we were dancing on tables and singing at the top of our lungs! I never thought that would be possible but OH yes it was! We ended up closing the bar down.
Well on Saturday, it was all about my Special Olympic athletes. 🙂 Totally had Bowling State! Everyone did so well. There were 13 athletes that competed. We had two athletes place first and it was super awesome. There is just something so special about them. You could see the nervous looks on their faces as well as succeeding…it is one thing you can just never replace. I think the coolest thing that happened though on Saturday was when an athlete from another team got a strike. She ran and gave me a hug! I just hugged her right back but how precious is that?
I think that if you really think about things and about how we all connect, you might be more inclined to let your light shine a little brighter. Deal with the situations you are given, take a lesson from each and move on! Those who understand, will always support you.
Visualize: A dark world with little specks of light scattered around it, some brightly burning and others dark as night. Imagine if the specks gravitated toward one another. What a bold visual! What if then the semi bright ones also reflected in the darkness and made them bright too? What a beautiful bright world this would be. Let us strive for that kind of world today!
Carry your candle 🙂
Peace and Love,
