Becoming the best version of yourself

Since When Is Life “Convenient”?

on July 22, 2019

It’s been a crazy, sometimes sad, sometimes irritating start to my summer.  When I look at all the things I’ve had to deal with, I fear most people would say “Huh?  I should be so lucky to have THOSE problems!”

It’s not even so much all the things that have broken, needed replaced, quit working etc., it’s more that it just keeps happening and like the old football penalty used to be called:  “piling on”!

Literally was out walking the dogs, having a conversation with the universe saying basically, “OK – enough’s enough!  Let’s get this bad karma turned around!”   And I get in the car to take a friend to catch her van to the airport and the car is DEAD!  I look heavenward and say, “Really???  This is how you answer me?”

BUT – in each case, I’ve had the support of really wonderful friends, and even some strangers, that have stepped up to help.  It still costs me time and money to deal with all these repairs, replacements and redos – but I know I’m not alone.

It’s not always convenient to be my friend.  Heck, I’m sure there are times when it’s not fun at all – but they still show up for me when that black karma cloud just refuses to go sit over someone else’s head.

Whether it’s my GF’s husband and son who came to jump my dead car, assess the problem, go to Walmart and buy me a new battery and install it, or the neighbors who stopped by to check on me after having to put one of my GSD’s down (after she quit eating and lost the use of her legs), or the visiting GF who helped me set up my new printer, replacing the one that just decided to quit, or the Good Samaritan and his son who stopped their car when my dogs busted through the Invisible Fence (that the landscapers had cut unbeknownst to me) and chased a deer through and across a heavily traveled road and caught them unharmed – it’s been ONE OF THOSE SUMMERS!

There is kindness still out there even though we don’t see it much on the news anymore.  And there are people who will show up for you even when it’s not at all convenient!  I’m trying to remember that and be grateful!
