Today was filled with small happenings that reminded me that life is worth living no matter the absurd and depressing circumstances I’m facing. It started out when I saw a familiar face in my yoga class, an old high school classmate. Then it came to witnessing Mama M’s patience with a frustrated customer. It reminded me of the motto: “Breathe and let go,” which I often forget to do in tough situations.
In a conversation with Mama M, I revealed to her that I might have social anxiety disorder, which has been negatively affecting me and my acting. We discussed it further and she told me something about “tapping”. “Tapping” is a form of acupressure in which you apply pressure to certain pressure points in your body to relief different forms of anxiety, stress, anger, etc. Sounded interesting.
Going back home, we passed a Starbucks and I said, “I can’t even remember when the last time I had Starbucks was.” It was then that Mama M remembered she was given a Starbucks gift certificate. So we went in and got our favorite: White Chocolate Mocha.
We conversed about the whole notion about “Ask. Believe. Receive” and realized that it is true in the smallest forms that we don’t notice it. Like, I wanted my camera for so long, and I believed I was going to get it some way or another. I finally found a way to receive it. Now to find a way to apply that to the bigger aspects of my life. Hmmm…
