Time to say peace out to all this bad juju trying to kill my vibe!
But seriously, who else feels like juuuuust as things are finally starting to go right and you’re on your way to getting your life together (whatever that means 🤣), the universe is like nah fam here’s all the most irritating inconveniences I could think of to throw at ya.
Well, that’s been my reality lately. And while there surely have been lots of tears, I also feel like I’ve been doing a dang good job at still being appreciative of what I’ve got and where I am.
So, I’m a planner - like way far in advance, set an itinerary for every waking minute - planner. This month starts my golden year 😎 so naturally I had all the plans for how I’d be spending my birthday weekend. Seeing Tim for the first time in 2 months, engagement pictures, Eric church, meeting up with friends we haven’t seen in a while, and starting my bday off with donating to a charity in the name of one of my challengers!
Well the Air Force decided they didn’t wanna give me tim for that weekend, AFTER we had already purchased all tickets and set plans obviously haha military life, am I right?
On top of that I also woke up this week with a rash on a good chunk of my face, got a flat tire and had to go to multiple stores to get it replaced bc they didn’t have it in stock, have an audit of all my client files, and it’s midterms week🙃
Fortunately I’ve been able to stay afloat by seeing the positives of these situations: now I won’t have to take my engagement photos with a rash on my face, I had a warranty on my tires so it didn’t put me in the red to get it replaced, I have an appointment with my dermatologist Friday to get my face straightened out, an audit on my files means I’m gonna learn lots of mistakes now in order to prevent them in the future, and midterms mean I’m that much closer to the end of another semester!
Point is, it’s okay to be frustrated, sad, angry, confused, defeated. Those feelings are normal, but when we fail as humans is when we decide to stay there in those emotions.
So here’s to all of us focusing on all the good things going on for us and focusing on how lucky we truly are compared to most!
