What’s funny about this post is that i JUST RECENTLY did the same thing. Well, it was a different opportunity, but, same mindset. Being too overly cautious. I originally wrote this on December 31, 2008. The current missed opportunity borders along the same lines, but, an entirely different scenario. Actually, it was a decision that i felt would be beneficial long term but, knowing what i know now, i should have thought short term. The short term benefits would have made a GREAT time. i would have had more fun, more action and probably more to write about!
So, i find out today that i royally screwed up a great opportunity by being too cautious. i did the exact opposite of what i wanted to do because i gave too much thought to it as opposed to doing what i should have done. Don’t you hate when that happens? I was given something on a silver, no, gold platter and because of nervousness, i bungled it. i didn’t want to be too forward for fear that i would be looked upon as being too pushy, yet, i played the wrong role at the wrong time and i wish i could go back to that night and get a do-over.
NEVER AGAIN! The timing couldn’t have been sooner! A new year starts in less than 24 hours of this writing and my main objective is to not think and just do and worry later! Instincts will take over thinking! i VOW that from now on, as of this writing, i will go with the flow!
And to the Woman Who i messed up this opportunity with, i only hope that i be given the chance to prove that You made the right choice and i promise you that it will be twice, no, three times better than it would have been, than it was! When i get that chance again, TRUST ME, i will NOT disappoint, i will meet all and every expectation!!!!
This is a new year!!!!!
