"What I Learned From a First Date"
Dating can be really annoying or really interesting. I guess it all depends on your expectations and who you are going out with. Whether it be a date or hanging with friends, I like to be around people that can see life a little differently. That way, I have a chance to actually learn something.
I went out with a very kind artist. We decided to go ice skating. If you saw my video, you know he had a hole in his sock. I'm not going to lie, it's not the most attractive thing when a guy's big toe is popping out of his sock. It also isn't a deal breaker.
The funny thing was, he didn't immediately put on his boot. He really didn't care that he had a hole in his sock and sure as hell didn't care if I saw it. At first, I was trying to avoid looking at it and he could totally tell I was being awkward. I guess, I don't have much of a poker face. Then he said, "Giovanna, I have a hole in my sock, get over it."
I started laughing hysterically, it was so funny. After that, I could care less about the hole in his sock. It actually became charming and endearing.
I learned a great lesson from him about "owning your shit." We all have been in situations were we felt a little out of place or uncomfortable. Instead of concentrating on that, what if we just owned what we had going on? Even if it is ridiculous. Being comfortable in your skin has the power to change perception. I would like to thank and dedicate this video to my friend, the artist with the hole in his sock!
