No, I promise, this is not going to be a downer post. Although I COULD write on and on about how things can suck, that is not for this post. I know, disappointing!
So there is some pretty crazy things that happen in life. Yesterday, when I arrived in the parking lot at my work, I hear a loud BANG behind me. My eyes snapped up to my rear view mirror, as I had already pulled into a space, and I viewed a jeep moving in the parking lot behind me. When I got out of my car, I saw the craziest thing – a car facing the Jeep had driven over the curb between them, driver over a grass barrier/hill, and crashed into the Jeep! But the fun doesn’t stop there! The driver of the car, an elderly man, backed the car up and took off! The poor Jeep owner, a woman visiting from Montana, had a badly hurt car and none of us was able to get his plate number!
Life – wow!
There are times when my day resembles that of the Jeep owner, if only metaphorically. I am minding my own business and BAM! – something hits me and then takes off. There are so many such occasions in my life actually. And, unfortunately, the REAL problem is my reaction to it. I have been angry, withdrawn, devastated, or not reactive enough. I have spent way too much time thinking of the scenario in the first place and far too less dealing with the issue OR getting on with my life.
But sometimes I CAN and DO react in a positive manner. I know, its a stretch.
Another four letter word – WORK. I am very thankful I have a job, yes. In fact, I just got a raise and I am very thankful for that. I have all the trappings of an “important” job; a laptop, a company phone, I can and do sign checks, and I manage people. However, I am currently having to face some serious CRAP (another four letter word, I might add) and it’s not pleasant. In fact, the more I shovel the crap out, more seems to fall in.
PITY party is sort of a four letter word, too!
And I haven’t stated this in a while, but I love my Mac! I have an HP for work, with Vista no less, and it’s OKAY…..(another four letter word), but it sure doesn’t touch the power and ease of my Mac! Gosh, when I added my wireless printer, it took like 2 minutes with the Mac….I won’t even SAY what it took with horrible Vista! Sheesh! But I am not a hater…..and if you want a PC you get it, okay? I really don’t care!
Okay, if you have any four letter words you would like to share, have at it. Just keep it clean!
