I think I fell in love with writing blog posts because it feels like I’m imparting some sort of wisdom onto all of you–and by all of you I mean all three of you who actually read these posts…
It makes me feel like a spirit guide of sorts, through this both daunting and incredible journey we call life–how cliché Chelsey–But it’s true, that’s how I feel.
I want to share the good and the bad with y’all because I wish someone had done the same for me.
I have always been the individual that is completely affected by one crappy event taking place–my whole day is ruined and it takes a lot for me to get out of the ensuing funk
I’m trying to change, I swear.
Take today for example:
- I let my sister borrow my car last night and this morning I go to leave for a meeting and it’s on E–with the gas light on mind you
- I’m walking out of the door and my boss tells me he needs me to do something before I leave.
- Now I don’t have enough time to stop for gas– so I make my way with many prayers and sheer will
- Finally, finish up my meeting and I feel like I can take a deep breath finally–and then my shoe breaks
- Now I’m making my way home and I HAVE to stop for gas–without shoes on…
By the time I get home, I’m in a pretty shitty mood, but then I stop for a moment and I realize that I can choose to move past the crappy parts and make the most of the rest of my day.
I can’t explain to you what came over me, but I just had this great desire to overcome and still have a great day.
Maybe this is maturity or maybe this is me recognizing that life is way too damn short to let a couple insignificant events ruin my whole day–or maybe it’s a combination of both.
Either way, I made a choice today and I chose to be happy.
Everything in life is happening FOR you not TO you.
Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so make the most of today.
