It could be worse…

Yesterday after work I went for a run/walk on the lake. It was gorgeous and there were tons of runners/walkers and bikers. As I was sprinting up to the drinking fountain on Fullerton a biker was right behind me and hit me. I went flying along with my iPhone and head phones. I had no idea what happened, I was just startled!!! The guy who hit me was very apologetic but the first thing he asked me was if my iPhone was okay… WHO CARES ABOUT MY PHONE… WHAT ABOUT ME?!?!?!

I was okay, just a little scrape and I was pretty shaky. As soon as I got myself together I kept on going with one side of my head phones out of commission. Oh well… it could be worse, right? Let’s not go there but there really should be someone monitoring the runner/biker traffic on Lakeshore, it can get dangerous!!

A few annoying things have been happening to me the past few days. My Dad was in the hospital with a kidney stone, my cable and internet went out last night, and this morning I forgot my keys to work and had to run home and get them. These are all annoying and frustrating situations but the point of this post is that it could be worse…

My Dad is doing much better, my cable is back on, and I have my keys! So, moving forward I am going to be positive the rest of the week realizing that everything is okay… just a few annoying set backs. 

Frustrating things happen to everyone all the time, but my friends and I say to each other that it could be worse!

Shit happens… if situations get to you, think of all the positive things you have going for you. Call a family member or a friend, go for a long walk (don’t get hit by a biker!), listen to your favorite music, indulge on some retail therapy…

Or have a dance party??

Don’t let the little things get in the way of your happiness, everything happens for a reason.  
Who’s going out for a margarita tonight?

    Ouch! Sounds painful. At least you go running! That's awesome. One day you may need to force me to go on a jog with you!
