Do you ever have one of those days when, if your life were a movie, it would be some dark, comedic tragedy? And you look at the clock and realize it's only 10 am?
I won't bore you with details, but suffice it to say that this is one of those days when, just when I feel like things are going alright, something happens to completely derail everything. It doesn't even have to be one major thing, but little things that just keep accumulating can be just as dangerous. I am trying so hard to do the right thing, stay on the right path and be a good person, and then life happens and craps all over my good intentions.
So, on this beautiful, sunshiny day I have already had harsh words with someone, tried not to panic over a (mostly minor) financial crisis, and discovered Ari the wonder dog had managed to get himself into the bathroom and consume half a roll of toilet paper. I don't want to know what comes next.
I know that, in the grand scheme of things, these are minor blips on my road. I am going to take a few deep breaths, say a few heartfelt prayers, start fresh and enjoy this glorious day.
