"When you're safe at home you wish you were having an adventure; when you're having an adventure you wish you were safe at home."
However -- "The more decisions that you are forced to make alone, the more you are aware of your freedom to choose."
These may seem unrelated, but for me they are to close not to recognize and validate. This weekend I am going to a Mid-Singles Conference. I have made the decision, alone, to go to this conference and be away from home for the weekend. I haven't done this in quite a while, maybe even since I moved to LA. It's a big step for me to be away from my bed, my things, my sanctuary. I am staying over at my friend, Dawn's parents place while we go on this adventure. I've never met her parents and it worries me a little to be imposing on someone's parents, unless I'm married to them or have been a long time friend. Dawn and I met last August in the ward. She is a great friend and now is my Visiting Teacher -- she and I get along very well. The weekend will probably fly by and I'll get little sleep --- but I'm praying for a safe, peaceful weekend!
My Horoscope said this today: "You should be feeling lucky right now. The person you've been wanting to meet is just about to make a well-timed guest appearance. They might be someone entirely new, and if so, you should feel as if you've known them for your whole life. It might be someone you've already known for quite a long time, in which case, you'll discover a whloe new side to each other. Either way, don't let them out of your sight!"
Just intersting given the event planned!!
Wish me luck!!
