Discovering What You Really Want in Life in the Strangest Ways

So it’s my favorite time of the year again. Every July, my city has a busking festival, which is one of my favorite events that occurs every summer. I love the festivities and getting to watch the unique acts. I have so many fond memories from the festival, from the year it got rained out the one night I attended with my best friend and the big fire spectacular put on by Dream State Circus went on despite the terrible weather. This year’s acts were amazing.

Attending the festival had gotten me thinking about life and what I want. After seeing Zap Circus, one of the returning acts, which were the 2017 People’s choice award winners, I realized that one thing I want in life is an amazing relationship like Tarabelle and Rusty have. They have such an electric chemistry (pun intended!) and I realize that relationships are not something that I want to compromise on. I’m totally jealous of how Tarabelle and Rusty look at each other because you can totally see that they’re still in love after 12 years and still have the cute infatuation and the trust that comes with a strong relationship.

There have been a number of times in my life where I feel like I had to compromise on relationships, including times where I was with guys that didn’t like me as much as I liked/loved them, I want the passion and excitement of a relationship, but also the stability, love, and warmth of a relationship. Both the Eros, Philia, and the Ludus (pasisonate love, deep friendship, and playful love).

Another thing that I admire about Zap Circus is the passion that they have for their careers. It’s very evident that they love what they do for a living. I want to be able to wake up every day and be excited about going to work, to feel like I am making a difference in people’s lives. There have been times in my life where I wasn’t entirely satisfied with the work that I have done, where I was either bored of the routine, or just plain didn’t feel fulfilled.
