I finally had the opportunity to attend the alternative fashion show that a friend had recommended earlier this week. I invited a friend but she couldn't make it so I went on my own.
By the time I arrived, the seats were taken. I stood with the professional and amateur photographers where I got a nice view of the models prancing around on the catwalk. There was a woman next to me taking photos who was really enjoying herself. She said she's not in the fashion industry and just curious about fashion. Every now and then we exchanged views about the outfits the models had on and she was fun to chat to.
After standing for a while I started feeling pins and needles running down my back. By the time the show finished, about an hour later, I was in agony. I didn't even wait for the models to take their final bow or to get my free ice cream. Besides, I felt it was a bit chilly for ice cream anyway.
Other than that, it was a good show and they had some interesting outfits I wouldn't mind wearing.
As I was walking back I started feeling a lot better.
It got me thinking that I am not designed to stay in one position for long. My energy configuration needs to be in constant motion. Even if I'm doing the same old stuff or living in the same old situation, it's important for me to be able to express the old from a new perspective each time, otherwise stagnation and discomfort sets in. I find the same applies to my personal relationships too.
Every day is a new opportunity to create or experience something new.
