"You Never know when you might surprise yourself"

Hey guys,

The above quote is probably a loose paraphrasing of something Kevin Spacey's character says in American Beauty. If anyone wants to find the exact quote, that'd be special. I'd do it but I'm buzzing with endorphins. Your body rewards you for doing the right things...

I just had a weird social pressure filled interaction and actually kinda looked forward to it. So it's a nice surprise to actually enjoy a moment that previously would have been terrifying. Even 2 years ago. Not to mention 6. I don't want to post about it cause it would blow most people's minds that stuff like this happens. Nonetheless nice to be surprised by my own growth as a person :) And it's always good to see tangible signs of progress along the way. I hope I ever come off like I'm trying to be perfect, as I like you guys and girls am still very much a work in progress.

Have a great weekend!

S

  4. the quote is "It's a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself, makes you wonder what else you can do that you've forgotten about."

    that was probably the greatest way to make everyone curious about your interaction....so tell us! :-)

    you no matter what stage of mastery you gain, you always gotta love the process.

    best,

  9. So many surprises in life and so many surprises in pickup. Have you ever brought home a girl who you thought was this really hot girl and then the clothes come off and she's got a penis? That was a shocker (happened to me when i lived in L.A.). The shocking thing was how I handled the situation. There was no sex involved..I promise...PINKY SWEAR..

    The point in all this is that sometimes in the face of social adversity, our reactions do not go the way we would normally respond.

    I think I'm the only person that doesn't care what happened and was more concerned with the movie quote.
