When things get a little freaky...

I filled my diffuser with some water, thew in a few eucalyptus drops, and I turned it on. All of a sudden, I heard random voices coming from the diffuser. WTF? I tried to pick it up to make out what the voices were saying, but as soon as I touched it they stopped. That freaked me out even more, and I dropped the diffuser spilling the water everywhere. I immediately turned it off and thought to myself, “I am losing my mind!”

The next morning, the diffuser wasn’t even on, and some guy started yelling through it like a sports announcer saying something about a guy in the crowd. I unplugged it, and basically ran out of my apartment. I was telling a few co-workers about it and one said, “Bates, you should really lay off the shrooms.” At that moment, I was fully aware of how ridiculous I sounded, and I kinda wished I did drugs so I could have a logical explanation.

Regardless, the whole thing got me thinking and here is what I took away from this little experience…

  • Expect the unexpected.

  • When things don’t go as planned, accept it and move on.

  • Perception is everything and you are responsible for how others perceive you.

  • Always know your audience and present yourself accordingly.

  • There will always be judgement.

  • When people judge, laugh it off. You know who you are.

  • There might not be a reasonable or logical explanation for everything that happens.

  • Don’t waste your time trying to figure out why things happen, just know you’ll be ok.

  • Sometimes things can get a little freaky, and that’s totally fine.

  • Understand most people don’t have an open mind.

Yup, I got all of this from a couple of random voices and some spilled eucalyptus water. My brain is bananas!

BTW, turns out that there was kind of sort of an explanation. There is a blue tooth option on the diffuser. That said, I never set it up and it’s definitely not registered to my phone. Regardless, the most important thing I’m taking away from this is I have to go find this guy in the crowd. Obviously, he’s very important! haha ;)
