When everything you have hoped for comes together and you just want to explode into this giant million confetti.
After being devastated about one of my favourite artist coming to town and I had no means of seeing him. I decided to take the matters to another level – Entering Competitions. Get this, I’ve never won any competition so this was already a risk on its own but I told myself that I was going to give it my absolute ALL. I searched for every site giving about tickets to see Paolo Nutini’s show and entered each competition with my entire being, soul and heart. I had to win. Losing was no option. I sent emails, wrote on Facebook walls and made comments.
I was ecstatic that one of the sites I always frequent, Bizcommunity also hosted a competition to win tickets. I did by absolute best, believed with all my might and left it all unto the hands of the universe.
A day later, I made it. I won!!
I’m about to get ready for the concert now. Totally Incredibly out-of-this-world EXCITED!!!!
My fingers a trembling as I write this.
I just won tickets to see Paolo Nutini!!!
I’m just too excited to type….
Thank you Biz Lounge: Entertainment !! 😀
Detailed post to follow later..
There might just be light at the end of the tunnel that I’m in. Or could it be a train coming towards me, ready to hit me with more disappointment?
This is a follow up to my post on Paolo Nutini’s concert coming up this week. So the update is that I’m luckily not working on the 19th March, which means that I can still catch his second day performance but now the problem is getting the actual ticket.
Is it just my experience or do the people who arrange concert dates make sure they do so a week before your payday, that way you’re a loser if you’re not so good at saving like me and this is just to spite you so you learn a lesson to finally stop being so reckless with your money? I know they probably announce way in advance but sadly the news never reach every eye:/
So this is my situation right now. I’m available to go but have no financial means to get there.
“Don’t despair child, the road is not over yet.” says the little voice inside of me, in the softest of all tones yet so warm I had an instant light bulb moment.
I don’t know what it is but my mind seems to be on a slow mode recently. It’s like the mind and soul are not living in the same dimension.
I mean I have no idea why I only thought of this now.
So the idea is to search all sites that are giving away Paolo Nutini’s concert tickets. It’s 8pm on a Sunday and I only thought of this now after having found out on the 11th. My goodness!!
I am now following every possible instruction needed for me to win those tickets.
I’M NOT EATING. I’M NOT DRINKING. I’M NOT SLEEPING. I’M NOT EVEN BLINKING. Hey, I’m even holding my breath as I type this. Okay, maybe not. I do afterall need to be alive to be part of this amazing experience I so badly seek.
This is the silver lining, so lets see where it takes me.
I’m leaving it all up to the universe now.
When my boyfriend heard about my heartbreak on me finding out that I will be missing Paolo Nutini’s concert because of finding out about it so late. He surprised me with something that had not crossed my mind even by a single second.
He had read the post I published at dawn on Saturday (though might show as published yesterday due to technical issues). He just knew just how to melt my heart, making me all better about the whole ordeal.
So on Saturday afternoon as we headed on our adventures in the city, he put on the radio and what my ears heard just swept me off my feet. My heart just melted and I wanted to cry, scream, kiss him endlessly and just hug him so tightly.
We had never listened to Paolo Nutini in his car before and despite our music taste which is not always similar, he took it upon himself to make me a mix cd of all Paolo’s albums (as I didn’t have all the albums). I was just blown away. The thought, time and effort of him doing all of that.
I just loved him even more for being so incredible. He just gets me and knew how to fill that void of disappointment. I felt so much at that moment and didn’t know how to express it. He is my person.
Thank you baby.
I love you madly!
Oh yeah, I’ll tell you something
I think you’ll understand
When I’ll say that something
I wanna hold your hand
There are songs that you hear for the first time and you can’t help but play them over and over. They become the only songs in the world that understand exactly what you feel. You become one with them as though they were made especially for you, completing you in every way. You get reminded of everything that ever went right and make you smile at all the hardship you conquered. They make you look within yourself and be proud of the person you’ve become. You are your own biggest fan.
And when I touch you I feel happy
It’s such a feeling that my love
I can’t hide
Nothing in the world can ever compare to the light that’s inside of you. And when you share it with others, seeing what impact your existence has on them, it makes it all worth it. Sometimes the things we take in from what the world expects of us to be does nothing but push us away from who we truly are and the things we are capable of doing. We know we have lost our way when we rely completely on the views of others on how to live and seek their consent before making that decision. Life is a gift – live in the moment; in your own terms and give it your best. For when things don’t go as you hoped, you’ll know that you gave it your best.
And please, say to me
You’ll let me hold your hand
I’ll let me hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand.
