Living Wild in RVA

I'm actually going out to see a band tonight. Yes, you heard right, on a Friday! I can't believe how long it's been since that has happened. I have never heard or seen the band before, but the description of their music sounds interesting. It will also be at a bar I've never been to before and I don't expect to know anyone there.

This is my current idea of high adventure; new people, new place, and new music. Yes!

About being psyched, I'm just tired of being blah and blasse about everything. I want to look at all things as opportunities for knowledge and enjoyment and really start to live in the moment. I realized I don't have to be living the most exciting life as long as I'm getting something worthwhile out of it (see here). So looking for the best time, all the time isn't the way I'm going to be happy, because what if it isn't the best time, then?

So reading a book in a new park, trying a new restaurant, talking to a stranger in line about her cool shoes can all be good things that might lead to even better things...or not. So yes, the idea of new people and just new things in general gets me excited. It may not sound like it's going to be my favorite music, but who knows? That's exactly how you do find new things to like.

I think after Culinary Therapy, Wende should run Social Rut Therapy. Hell, if she won't, I will.

I love your attitude--I think it's easy to get "stuck" (I think I am there now where my job is concerned.) Making your mind up to see life differently and experience life differently is a good way to get un-stuck--but it has always been a challenge for me. I hope the evening was full of adventure! I'm going to see my favorite local jazz artist tonight-woo hoo!

I totally agree that life doesn't have to be exciting to be enjoyable. The simpler your pleasures, the more often you experience them.
