We’ve been trying to get this brunch together for over a year. Why did it take so long? She got sick. Then I did. Changes in plan. Traveling and then not. The point is that it really doesn’t matter why it didn’t happen until now. The point is that if I get stuck there, I’ll stay there.
Interestingly, ever since I decided to do the metabolic surgery, all sorts of things and opportunities have opened up and worked out. Miracles abounding!
I’m driving to Western Mass to pick up my sweetie from Acting Camp, and then we’re going into town Saturday night. Brunch with Nancy, Sanctuary Seminary, and then a quick trek home to B’town. A fast and dirty trip.
The thing I’ve realized is that I can feel good about this trip or I can feel bad about it and the choice is thoroughly up to me and me alone. That’s true of everything but it came home to me particularly around this trip.
There were myriad details that we not worked out when my sweetie left on Monday. I could have fretted; I didn’t.
I needed keys to the place where we’re staying. I could have fretted; I didn’t.
I wasn’t sure when I could pick her up so I couldn’t make parking reservations. I could have fretted; I didn’t.
There were other things, but you get the idea. Choosing how to feel is a real option.
P.S. [a quick PP added on Monday before posting] We didn’t meet Nancy for brunch. When we got home there were four messages from her. She wanted us to come to her hotel for a meeting. We blew into a cab and tore down to the Milburn, met for an hour, and wow! She was very cool; our connection was great, and I finally got to look into her eyes.
