Well it’s now half ten in the evening here and I’m writing this since pretty much everyone departed from the homestead – I’ve had a really good evening seeing friends who decided to show up. Had a bit of a “guitar duel” with one of my other friends who plays the guitar that was funny.
But something that was bugging me all evening long was the people who said they were coming – ended up not coming, without warning and it saddened me that they did that – it was very difficult to choose people and I did leave quite a few friends out, people who I probably should have invited over the other people who didn’t show up (who said they would). I mean yeah it’s always a bummer when people say they can’t make it but at least they said.
Something I’ve learned today is that there’s a limit to how much of a “Good Friend” you can be to someone, when they start using you – regardless if you want to get laid or not – it’s probably time to bail. So I’m bailing on someone.
I had a pretty good evening – had a laugh or two with friends and had some funnier moments as the event drew to a close. I can’t wait to see what next week has in store for me, what challenges I get to overcome, what experiences I get to have and what new people I get to meet.
When life drops someone in your life, get to know them first – if there’s something that you really don’t like about someone, don’t stick around, chances are that’ll bring you down and a good degree of optimism is key to making you just that positive person to keep going in life.
