it was a blessing being at court today (ironic, i know). i had the chance of speaking with three people: a global cuisine chef at sheraton (!I KNOW RIGHT!), a musician/writer, and a ucsd alumni like me (actually… i assumed he was an alumni. not sure if he’s still a student).
i was disappointed in myself, however, during the time i was speaking to the 2nd individual, the musician/writer. he asked me what i was reading (sherlock holmes) and then went on to telling me about this really good book he found online regarding this spirituality / buddhist / re-incarnation ficional book. i didn’t know how to further the conversation, just wanted to find out more but didn’t have the courage (?) to ask more personal questions. the moment passed. we moved on.
in my head, i knew. God was nudging for me to speak up, but i couldn’t - or rather, wouldn’t. sigh. oh the shame of not taking advantage of that moment, God!
may you give me courage and hear your nudging next time you give me the opportunity… help me be bold!
ugh. silly me for transferring a good chunk of my $$ from checking to savings, then writing a ginormous check to pay back my tuition and for forgetting to check the amount available in my checking acct before doing so. stupid bank charged me $34.00 for having “insufficient funds”. >[
i could’ve bought something useful or treated someone else to dinner with that $34.00 ><;
