Today did not start off great. I woke up late, I had no clothes to wear for the not hot/not cold day, I was running late to my event. But I went anyway and you know what? I’m glad I did.
The trolley ride was interesting. I saw such a motley group, including a woman who pulled out a Walkman! I ended up 15 minutes late for the tour of Petco Park, which turned out fine because I got a private tour and a regular tour once we caught up with the group. I made a great friend and running buddy, a possible business lead and many contacts for a potential BU group. And I made a contact within the Padres organization (whose value could be immeasurable if we really connect over time!).
I met some great people, had fun, got to enjoy walking around downtown, met up with my friends for an afternoon out on the town, and overall had a fantastic day. All because I did it anyway, despite not wanting to.
Even if you aren’t feeling great, do it anyway. Trust me–you’ll be happy you did!
