…actually it ended up being a little more than six hours, really.
But I loved every minute of it.
But even if I hadn’t loved it, I still would have plastered on the world’s cheesiest grin and faked it like never before – because after all, this was CBG’s Night – seeing his all-time favourite band EVER in concert. You bet your ass that I’m gonna be there and I’m going to make sure that it’s a memorable night. Because for me, that’s what showing your love is all about.
Every now and then I still have these moments when I shake my head in disbelief that THIS is where life has taken me. Most of the time, it’s one of those amazingly wonderful, completely surreal moments, where, had you asked me a year ago what I thought I’d be doing at this time, I’d never have been able to guess.
I had one of those moments this past Saturday night.
There I was, standing in the middle of a crowd of about thirty thousand people or so, in a plastic rain poncho, holding hands with a man whose blog I’d started reading out of the blue just a little over a year ago, dancing to KISS.
Um…..WHAT?? Whose life is this I’m living, anyhow?
At one point I lifted my face up to the sky, eyes closed, feeling the raindrops hitting me, smiling the world’s biggest smile. Then and there I offered my immense gratitude up to The Universe – again. I knew in that moment that I was truly living….that I was the in the middle of the life that I’ve been wanting for myself for a good long while now. Finally. Every time I looked over at CBG and saw how much fun he was having, how much joy he was experiencing, I shared in it with him, too. There was no place I would have rather been on Saturday night – rain, mud, obnoxious drunks, KISS, and all.
No, life is not turning out the way I thought it would – it is far better than anything I ever could have imagined for myself.
Life’s so amazing like that.
