Today is all about my latest mission… finding a way to get to Australia to see Jimmy Buffett next month. Now that is living life! I just have to find an affordable way to make it happen that doesn’t take us half way across the world and back and 3 days to get there.
As much as I’ve enjoyed hanging out with the wine guy I’ve put it behind me and determined New Years Eve must be my Cinderella moment…. or at least the start of it.
It all makes sense to me. A few months ago I went to a bridal shower where there was a Cinderella quote on the back of a photo at my table.
That couple is holding a reception for their wedding on New Year’s Eve. There is the whole midnight Cinderella connection… and of course I can always buy a pair of shoes for the evening. Not to mention my car isn’t the most reliable ‘coach’.
The Tea Leaf reader is coming going to come on the show, we are the same astrological sign and she did say 2011 is our year. A lot of big things are going to happen… I’ll take her word for it.
While I was at work I got an email from my friend the Spa Girl. It said Person X is going to call you today.. you should say ‘yes’.
Her cryptic message had me perplexed, but also intrigued. I had no idea what it meant, but I trust her so I waited for the phone to ring.
I got a text message to my email from the person saying ‘can you call me’. I called from my cell phone knowing I would be leaving work soon for a hair appointment
On my way home the phone rang, and it was the person returning the call. She asked if I wanted to be a ‘complimentary media ticket’ to her upcoming seminars.
They are about leadership and empowering women, she said the 48 hours were life changing. I had to admit, in any other instance I probably wouldn’t have thought twice about it, but knowing my friend the Spa Girl said ‘do it’ had me convinced it was in my best interest.
I know I’ve got a few things planned this weekend so I asked if I could check all of that information out and let her know in the morning.
I am all about finding my happy place again, I could certainly use that, but I hate making myself vulnerable in front of strangers…. the thought of it makes me so uncomfortable.
I know the Spa Girl pretty well and I don’t think she would lead me astray so I’m going to have to say ‘why not?!’ Life’s short!
I certainly don’t want to sit around wondering ‘what if… I had gone to that conference… how would my life be different’.
So here I go…. I’m going to go for it. I’m a total gamer… what do I have to lose except my dignity I suppose… and I’m afraid that went out the window a long… long… time ago. Ha ha
Besides… it gives me a reason to take my flask on a weekend trip to try it out 🙂
