This has been a bad week. Not like the traumatic-I’m-never-getting-out-of-bed-again kind of bad, but the nothing-seems-to-go-right kind of bad. My internet refused to work on Monday. I didn’t wake up from my alarm and was late for an important meeting on Tuesday. I hit a concrete structure with my car on Wednesday (okay, so that one was a bit traumatic for my poor car, Pearl).
Anyway, this morning I woke up and was a bit nervous as to what Thursday would bring. I got to work a bit early and didn’t hit anything on my way in — it was a win so far.
Then I spilled my soy hot chocolate on my pants. UGH
After cleaning up with my trusty Tide To-Go, I took five minutes to chill and look at Pinterest. I saw the quote below and thought, “That’s totally what I needed to do today!” Except I didn’t like the typography, so I thought I’d recreate it, post-it style.
When things aren’t working out the way you want them to, be it technology problems, work problems, friend/family problems, you just have to tackle the problem another way.
I’m not saying give up on your problems entirely and go the way of moping on the couch with cake. Although, now that I think about it, it is a rather appealing option. I’m just saying that your problems can always be worked out. If not one way, try another. If not at first, they will soon. And always ask for help if you think you can’t deal. People are always willing to help and are way more helpful than we give them credit for. Unless it’s the guy I talked to on Monday who tried to fix my internet; he wasn’t helpful at all.
Keep on trying and when nothing goes right, go left.
Until next time,
