Thinking Through the Reason to the Rhyme

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth

Leaving a party that’s about to go to a club, to go home is one of the hardest things I’ve had to do lately. I love my girls and I want to spend time with them, but I know where my priorities lay and I had to leave. Dayum that was hard.

It’s what you call discipline. The kind that you want to fight against, but you know mentally you can’t because you have too much riding on the outcome of that decision.

If there’s one thing to learn from this event tonight then, it’s that making what’s important a real priority, even on the Saturday of a long weekend, can be hard but ultimately so worthwhile. If you set yourself a goal and intend to meet it, then that should and can become the outcome but it will also take a fair amount of concerted effort. By leaving the party as it was just getting started I realized that I just paid myself back in peace of mind and freed myself of guilt.

I did the right thing.

It may suck and feel like the opposite of fun, but in the long run I went with my gut in the moment and that’s all I can ever expect of myself. I also realized that I left a party so I can plan an even more epic one. Ah there’s the silver lining.

So if you take something from this friends, I suggest that you take a look at the actions you take in your everyday life that are truly worthwhile and make a concerted movement towards them. You will enjoy them so much more if you can think through the reason to the rhyme. Trust me.

Have a good night!
