Day 70 - I Gotta Feeling

I've found over the years that I am great at making plans, love anticipating them, and then when it comes to maintaining and attending them, I occasionally get cold feet. I never doubt that I will have a great time once I'm at the event, but sometimes self doubt, anxiety and/or laziness attempt to talk me into going home, or staying home, instead of heading out for a night of fun.

Tonight, I almost let fear keep me from hanging out with three great friends whom I haven't hung out with in months, but of course, if I did that I wouldn't be typing this blog post. So, instead of torturing myself and using work as an excuse not to go out, I picked myself up by the boot straps, got into my car and blasted the most hip-hoppy-upbeat song I knew the lyrics to and sang (poorly) in efforts to pump myself up! Of course, no radio sing along pending a night of going out is complete without the Black Eyed Peas, "I Gotta Feeling (Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night)". And so it was! I had a blast scarfing down way too much Cantonese food, and catching up with my friends. My fortune cookie, now as I look back appropriately stated;

"Don't put off to tomorrow, what you can do today."

My advice, follow my fortune cookie and embrace the time with friends and family now. Set aside anxiety or preconceived notions, enjoy life, and hug more often!


  1. What a coincidence, we both mention black eyed peas in a post on the same day :)

  2. Catching up on Lynn blogging, keep doing what your doing!
