I have been line dancing since I was 18 years old. My favorite part about is being able to look like a complete fool but still having a great time.
Because of school and work I haven’t been able to go for about two months. And last night my friends and I decided to make a very very last minute trip to the saddle rack for so e dancing.
I always seem to be surprised how happy it makes me. No matter how much I go, I am always energized and grinning from ear to ear.
A spontaneous trip with friends definitely one of the little things.
Today, while working during the craziest sale of the year, I was helping a man who just got out of the army. He needed the essentials for backpacking.
I didn’t treat him any differently than any other customer. But he was just so grateful for everything. He was so used to not having very many choices. It was really refreshing to have someone so grateful after a very long day.
And on top of that after he had checked out he came all the way to the back of the store just to thank me for all my help. It made me feel good that I had helped him that much even though I was just doing my job. But it also reminded me that going out of your way to thank someone, for even the smallest things, makes the biggest difference.
It comes full circle when you voice your appreciation for the little things that people can do for you.
I am currently studying Meteorology going into my final year of college. I am not sure what I want to do just yet, but I do know that whether I take a job or go to graduate school after graduation, I unfortunately will not be able to stay in the Bay Area. I want to be able to go wherever my future takes me. Because of this, I am scared to become attached to anyone because I know I will only have a year left with them.
I have always put my future ahead of all my relationships. It’s really hard to balance wanting to be successful and believing in love. So I have decided to find love and happiness in things other than relationships, the little things.
For the next year, I plan to write about concentrating on the little things, like the people I love and things that make me happy.
