I haven’t really had the time to reflect on the last few months of my life. Things haven’t really been busy at all but I haven’t had a free moment to just sit and think. Every time I do end up reflecting I tend to think of Omaha. I’m unsure why because things here haven’t been bad, they have actually been amazing. But when I think about my time in Omaha I often think about the time I spent making it “home”.
1. Spend more time taking care of myself. Ex… Working out, having alone time, practicing drums. Being in the moment and making sure my needs are met.
2. Explore California and all it has to offer. Hoping for 1 new thing every month that is California related.
3. Expanding my business. Having more clients and developing relations with them.
4. Find a new band. Leaving my Omaha band might be the biggest bummer for me this year. I love those guys and wish them the best of luck.
5. Learn something once a week and be open to new things wether it be tech or something more adventurous like surfing.
The other day Elizabeth and I went to Sacramento. We were visiting and checking out the town. After traveling all day long I had been using my cell phone and Elizabeth had been using hers as well. We stop to grab a bite to eat right after sun down. My sister-in-law Becca thought it’d be a good idea to charge our phones while we were hanging out so when it was time to leave we could use them for GPS to get around the town. The place we were at was fine with us using their outlets. I thought it was a great idea as well so I went out to go get our chargers.
While walking to the car I noticed a guy smoking on the porch fairly close to where our rental vehicle was parked. He was keeping a close eye on me for some reason and I got a weird feeling about the situation but didn’t think twice about it. I got about half way back to start charging my phone and turned around to double check to make sure I locked our vehicle. Sure enough everything was locked up.
After charging my phone we went back to the car to find the window shattered and all of my stuff taken. Turns out there isn’t much the police can do about the situation. In fact, they don’t even go to the scene unless its an emergency. So I figured I could either be mad about the situation or kiss goodbye my iPad, extremely expensive headphones, keys and clothes, take the bull by the horns and be thankful I wasn’t there when the guy decided to do this. No one was hurt and now I can look forward to purchasing a new devices in the future when I get the money for it. :)
I’m not saying it was the guy I saw on the porch it might have been some random person walking down the street. Whoever it was got away with stealing and it stinks that there isn’t anything that can be done.
You win some, you lose some.
I’ve found it’s a lot better to think positively about situations like this. Sure I was bummed, I complained to Elizabeth about the situation some but I just kept reminding myself its not a big deal. I was lucky enough to have those belongings for the amount of time I had them. Some countries don’t even have running water. Here in America I’m fortunate enough that I was able go to a Target and buy clean underwear, a toothbrush and have a hotel to sleep/shower in for my next day of traveling.
The older I get, the quicker time seems to move. I remember when I was 16 and working at Subway where it seemed like a shift there lasted three days. Now it seems like I get to work and there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done (not that I’m complaining).
It’s already the 13th of June and granted I’ve been busy. I’ve had 3 pool parties, been to 2 festivals, and 2 concerts it seems like this month has flown by. I suppose time fly’s when you’re having fun. I hope the rest of this month slows down a bit but keeps the fun factor.
Sometimes, life takes in weird directions. Somedays good, some bad. I heard a quote the other day on a movie which stated “timing is all in the heart”. Seems silly, but I agree. The moments that we enjoy the most seem to fly by and the moments we dread/hate always seem to last forever. Continue reading “Its all about timing…”
