Ladies and Gentlemen,
Wow, yesterday I’ve been through a roller coaster ride. Really choose your battle carefully. Know which battle to pick. I cannot always win. That’s what I really have to understand in life. I really cannot always win. There are oftentimes, where I am right, but sometimes, there’s no platform to prove your right. I mean it’s debatable. There’s always a way, but do I really would like to spend my time and energy, to prove myself for that one event, that I am right?
Yesterday, I was in a salon to wax my arms and belly, for a photo shoot for today. It should have gone smooth, but it didn’t, the staff had so much attitude and were extremely rude. Not to mention, stubborn. Anyway the point is they waxed at a spot, where I specifically said, don’t wax. They did it anyway. Here’s where I went wrong. I should have gotten up immediately and stopped the session, run to the desk and express what has been done. However, since they already committed the mistake, I thought I might as well move on with the whole session.
I just wanted to express this to the staff, that it’s wrong to just wax where I didn’t want to. But they had no ears. They couldn’t care less. I felt bad, that I didn’t handle it right. It really escalated, they were pushing me, because I wanted to leave, since no one cared. I called up my friend and my sister to help me. I mean, it was not fair, justice had to be served. It was not an expensive place and they treat customer like dirt, apparently. Like I said, I lost, since I continued the session. Okay, fine, but at least they should have acknowledged, that they were wrong. I mean come on.
Anyway, this is precisely my point, I could go on and on, but like I said, this battle is lost, I have lost this battle. This is not the battle I would like to win. You know why? If I knew exactly what to say, to those rude people, I wouldn’t call up my friend. Because after this happened, me, my friend and sister went out for dinner. And we got some great insights, for what to do next and how to get to the next level in my Acting career. And I mean I received GREAT tools. I saw perspective and how I strategically could earn more money. That’s what I mean, I lost the battle, but I am about to win the war. I have to see the bigger picture here.
The fact that the staff was rude to me and I felt offended and therefore I wanted to get justice, is a battle that I really wanted to win. Because I wanted to make an impact on those people, that they cannot treat customers like that. But
Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.
That’s a fact. I can do what I can, I’ve said what I felt was right, but I have to let go. Because I always have to remind myself, to put my ego aside and think big. Think about the long term. I mean I still feel a bit that I could have done more to the situation, but like I said, I wouldn’t call my friend and then get the tools for the next level. Would I’ve gotten the tools later? Perhaps, yes, but I guess I’ve received it earlier. And God always throws bricks BEFORE he gives something beautiful.
And instead of pointing fingers, let ME just be more kind, I at least can be a good human being, treat people nice. I cannot control anyone’s actions, only mine. That’s the most important thing. Yes, it sucks when God brings a bit turbulence in my life, and I feel defeated. However, I shouldn’t ask, ‘why is this happening to me’, but rather ‘what’s the meaning of this’?
So, a bit giving in (which is very challenging for me at the moment) and trying to let go of that stupid battle and really think about winning the war.
God bless. GO, WIN the WAR!
