If it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be.


Isn't that statement so true? We always hear it regarding love, life, and happiness. If it's meant to be, it will happen. But if it's not, what is there to do but to move on with the unique moments of life and continue living. Although I never used to be the type of person that would freak out if something didn't go my way - - I must admit, I would get frustrated and a little stressed out. If I only had the mindset I have today back then, life would have been so much easier.

Ever felt like you had to be in two places at once? Wish you could just morph another body and everything can be peachy? That's how I felt yesterday.

My boyfriend's beautiful daughter had a lovely recital where she sang "Part of your World" by the Little Mermaid...solo! The recital started at 3:30pm and my flight to Vegas was scheduled for 5pm.

And so, I attended this lovely event and felt so honored to be there. Did the best that I could to make my flight to Las Vegas but missed it entirely. I tried getting onto another flight but all was booked up. C'est la vie.

I was telling my boyfriend earlier in the day..."When I imagine myself 5 years from now, I'll ask myself will I regret missing her very special performance or regret missing a flight to a place that will always be there?"

Therefore, I took my chances of being late and got my priorities straight. She means the world to me. He means the world to me. And you know what? The boyfriend knew I was looking forward to getting a nice lobster dinner once I arrived in Vegas - - but since I didn't end up going, he still made my wishes came true and surprised me with a decadent dinner!!

  7. "If it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be." Its a hard one that I always wrestle with. I relate it to basketball, when you've taken your shot and its in the air that's when you should decide whether you're happy with it or not (was it a good look, was it a good release?). Whether it goes in or not shouldn't matter because you did the best you possibly could have.

    Here's the sticking point, happy people decide when its in the air. Great people decide once it goes in. Certain people are results based, they're the ones who are playing to win and are after greatness.

    The greatness part doesn't so much relate to this story but being happy with the choice whether it pans out or not is the point I guess. Looks like a win-win to me, lucky you. I wouldn't worry about missing out on the meal too, I'm sure alternate universe Cathy enjoyed it ;)

    1. Great insight. I love the basketball analogy as well! You are right, some people base their happiness on different things such as moments, results, or the process itself. I would have to say that I'm one of those people that are happy I gave it my all in any situation, and whatever happens - just happens. Got to be grateful for that in itself.
      Haha! I'm confident alternate universe Cathy had a ball eating up that lobster!!
