I reflect on each day to figure out what lesson I learned from life. I share each of those lessons on this blog. Here is today’s…
From Friday to Monday, here is what my weekend looked like:
Friday… Crashed my new Prius
Saturday… Enterprise ran out of cars to rent
Sunday… Our rice cooker exploded
Monday… Trainee missed flight, causing havoc at work
Okay, now here is what else happened:
Friday… Crashed my new Prius and no one was injured or killed.
Saturday… Enterprise ran out of cars to rent so I went to another location and worked it all out.
Sunday… Our rice cooker exploded and I cleaned up the mess and made a carrot cake instead.
Monday… Trainee missed flight, causing havoc at work so we adjusted the training schedule and I picked him up later than planned.
I won’t lie. I was in a pretty foul mood for much of the weekend, even though I tried to keep things in perspective. I mean, those are seriously some first-world rich white person problems there, and I get that, but they still felt like big problems in the moment. Sometimes it seems like you can’t catch a break, but in truth, every time you survive adversity (without dying), you have won. You faced and overcame a challenge and the only critic tearing you down after that is… you.
I had a “rough” weekend, but looking back at it now… it was actually pretty great!
