Any time you feel like you’re down on your luck or just having a really bad day, remind yourself that it could always be worse.
For example, my car has been really bringing me down lately. Blake and I bought a 2001 Honda Civic as a temporary car for me, figuring that it was inexpensive and reliable enough to last until I get a job and can buy something newer.
First was the horrific trip home from Vegas. But as awful as it was, I can’t help but think that it could have definitely been worse. We could have gotten into an accident and been seriously injured or I could have been hungover and throwing up out of the tow trucks window for 3 hours. HAHA- thankfully I did not drink the night before.
After purchasing new tires and thinking that the worst of my troubles were over, my car decided to just stop working on Thursday when I was on my way home from South Pasadena. As irritated as I was to once again be stranded on the side of the road, (but this time by myself) I know for sure that it definitely could have been worse. It didn’t break down until I got off the freeway and was close to home, I was in a safe area where I could pull to the side of the road and my friend was there within minutes to pick me up.
Two strangers stopped to make sure I was ok, my father-in-law rushed over to help figure out what was wrong with the car and my friend stayed with me until the car was towed away. I was more grateful to be surrounded by good people than I was angry about the car breaking down.
In any given situation, things could always be worse. So try to focus on the GOOD!
Happy Monday, make it a great one!!
