Huhmmm..., I think I cannot come to the event because....
- My work schedule wont permit me to attend.
- I do not have money for contribution.
- I am not a professional. I did not accomplish anything.
- I am ashamed.
- My Wife will not allow me to attend.
- My Husband will not allow me to attend.
- I have some reservation. I just do not have the interest to see my classmates anymore!
Urggh, the latter point can be a tough one and a hopeless case to imagine, but somehow the underlying reasons may be nearly the same with either of the former points. If the invitation happened to be just a few years after the high school graduation, I think we can easily understand and some of the above reasons can be valid.
But Santa Mary full of grace! it has been 25 years now. We are now on our 40's. I believe that perhaps your figure and looks changed, your outlook in life changed for the better, but I bet, the spirit of friendship inside you is still the same. You are still the Bagets of the 80's who just want to have FUN!
You just need to unleash the real You! You want to experience again those exciting feeling. You've got to believe that when you meet your high school classmates again, you will add more life to your story. You will understand that you will only live once in this world, and you should make the best of it. You are not getting any younger and so with your classmates. Each time you get connected, you feel that the clock stops. It is amazing! It is hard to explain, but it is unbelievable!
Alright, So what should I do?...
To inject positive and hope in your mind which is at the state of uncertainty and doubt as stated above, the following statement can be change to something like......
- I will try to arrange my work schedule to attend this once in a lifetime event.
- I am blessed, and so with my classmates. Money will never be a problem for the event.
- I am a Professional Dad / Mom. I raised my kids very well.
- I am still Single and I think this can be an Opportunity!
- I can't wait to chat with my classmates.
- I can invite my wife to this homecoming.
- I can invite my husband to this homecoming.
- I am so excited for this reunion!
But wait. we still need money for this event, right? You know, for the food and drinks, logistics, advertising, gifts, projects, etc.... Oh yeah, most will come from pledges or voluntary donation from our blessed and well off classmates. They will be glad to share their blessings to our alma mater and to our less fortunate classmates. If you do not have the money, you do not need to be bothered at all, the important is, you are willing to attend and join the FUN.
Ok you got me, how can I share my blessings and contribute for this event?
