Date #1 Afterthought


I was telling some friends about my “First Date” experience the other day. We were talking about how much I enjoyed the camaraderie of the people sitting on all sides of me in the theater. A couple of them felt like we had been friends forever. Our interaction was so fun and effortless, and then poof, it was gone. The show was over and we all vaporized into the crowd as we made our way to the exits. We didn’t exchange any contact or social media information, so that’s the end of our one-night stand friendship. 🙂

I thought it was a perfect example of just living in and enjoying the moment and then letting it go like a helium balloon floating off into the sky. The memory of the fun I had with these people for a few hours is still there, but my memory of them is getting smaller. I have already forgotten what some of them looked like, but not how they made my heart feel. I wanted to write about this because there is no better way to grow and put things in proper perspective than to live in the present, rather than dwelling on the past or stressing about the future.

I’m not gonna lie…I’m definitely stressing about the future…Date #2 is this weekend…
