GIRLS DONT READ this ones just for the fellas. only guys will get this one. bros you know when youre at the gym workin on your ‘toids to get big for the sports well OKAY I’m sure the ladies have stopped reading by now, so what’s their deal? how do I tell the girls I love them without having to talk? I’m scared
Was on the lirr to stony for dance rehearsal when some guy gets up to leave for his stop. Middle aged white male. could’ve been Jewish and wasn’t wearing anything too flashy or extravagant.
Anyways, he gets up and as he’s about to leave through the parting doors, I look down and spot his wallet on the seat. Let me tell you…this wallet was FAT. Like obese breakin at the seam type shit. I saw the wads of bills on bills fattening up the leather hide no joke. I grab the wallet and without a moment of hesitation, I run to the guy screaming “sir your wallet!” - I hand it to him and he thanks me and leaves. At first I was like “nigga couldn’t slip me a buck at least?!” But moments after, i figured that if everyone did good things without expecting things in return, the world would be a very pleasant place
Strange thing was that initial moment I spotted the wallet, I expected to have some sort of mental dilemma - but I didn’t, I simply just acted on good faith. I think I’m pretty proud of myself and my family for raising me with such values.
Maybe I should start believing in this whole karma thing. Hopefully life returns the favor? We can only continue doing good and hope for the best I guess.
FOUND A WALLET ON THE TRAIN AND RETURNED IT. KARMA +1?!
Rule 1: Be relevant
Who are you? Why should I listen to what you have to say? Students don’t take word from somebody they don’t respect. If you’re gonna teach a style, make sure you really are a master at it. Credibility is what you earn through years of practice. Too often I see young dancers…
If I had $5 for every time someone said the word “basically” in my college career, i could pay off my tuition two times over.
It’s amazing - no it’s a miracle how we can meet someone that just understands us. As if they were there for all your problems all along. The angst built up inside us because we feel like we don’t belong or are misunderstood just vanishes.
We meet these people out of chance and it’s like fate calling out saying “you’re not alone”
These people, are at one point strangers - and then in a blink of an eye, allow us to release the skeletons we’ve kept in our closets for so long.
I empathize for those who haven’t met these special individuals yet because I too was at my lowest point with nowhere to turn. People don’t realize the power of simply listening. Just having someone with an open mind and open ears may not seem like much but for people like me, it could mean the world.
I don’t know if any of you can relate to me but being surrounded by hundreds of friends and still feeling alone SUCKS. But once you find those people who have a connection with you - like a REAL connection, you feel safe, secure and comfortable. You feel like you are at the top of the world with your past left behind you.
At one point I thought she was just a pretty face and a fun dance. But something lying underneath her really helped me - helped me with letting go and I thank her a lot for it.
