I try not to get too excited about things. Don’t get me wrong, I am a very excitable (didn’t know that was actually a word until now, thanks spell check) person but there have been a lot of things in the past that don’t end up happening once I get excited about them. I’ve started to somewhat believe that I jinx myself by either telling someone else about it, or just by being too excited. Yes, there have been times in the past when the opposite has proven to be true. I really wanted to go see Taylor Swift, but didn’t manage to get tickets. My best friend knew how much I wanted it, and her mom managed to get some for us THREE DAYS BEFORE the concert. That same friend also made a super awesome weekend trip happen, when otherwise it wouldn’t have.
So yes, sometimes telling people about your excitement pays off. If and when they can help you achieve those goals, that is. When it’s something that is fully up to you to pull off (well, and a few other factors that are out of your control), it can be extremely disappointing to have something not end up happening. It’s been a little over a month of the potential without me getting too excited about this, but now the time is getting closer and closer. It’s getting harder and harder to NOT be excited about this.
And there’s still a huge chance it won’t happen, must like in the past. But I’m a believer in karma and that everything happens for a reason, so I’m choosing to believe that somehow, somewhere, someday… this WILL happen. I just hope it’s sooner rather than later. And it will change everything.
(And I do realize I’m being totally vague and I apologize for that, ’cause I know I’d want to know. Y’all will find out in due time, I promise. Hopefully I’ll be blogging with good news.)
