Often we are told to see a situation through because "You never know where the path will lead."  Many times the path does not lead anywhere special (I still haven't gotten those three hours back from seeing "Lestat: The Musical") but, more often than not, we reap unexpected rewards for staying the course.  Case in point: I recently attended my first same-gender wedding.  It was a beautiful affair in a wonderful hall with a beaming groom and groom holding court.  Given the prominence of the happy couple in the local gay community, the event was guaranteed to be peppered with many single and partnered gay men.  As such, I opted to attend the event stag.  Where better to meet other single gay men than at a gay wedding, right?  When it came time to take our seats, I was one of the last to enter the hall but was very excited to see that, of the ten tables, five were full of men.  I made my way to my table with a smile on my face only to discover that ... I was to be the only gay man at a table of lesbians.  Really.  Really?  I double-checked my card against the table card and... there was no mistake.  Who did I tick off?  Even the ladies at the table couldn't contain their surprise.  Well, Life Coaches are human and my joyful mood was immediately replaced by perplexity which was followed by a festering anger.  A couple of friends suggested I just move to one of their tables but that's a classless action.  I was raised better than that.  My anger was taking hold though.  During the happy couple's first dance, I vowed to take my leave after the appetizer.  I was livid.  I took a walk though and, using my best coaching logic, determined that I should make the best of the situation and stick it out.  I walked towards a group of guys outside and introduced myself.  Two were single!  The appetizer was being served so we made our way back inside.  Once I settled back in at the table, the conversation turned to careers.  Upon hearing I am a Life Coach, two of the ladies lit up and said "We've been looking for a Life Coach!"  Wow.  It was in that moment that I realized that I was "meant" to be seated at "this" table and at "this" moment in time.  I often tell my clients to treat every new situation as an opportunity because "you never know where it may lead."  Even the Coach needs to be reminded of this every so often
