Pity Party?

Nope . . . not gonna happen. I came close on Saturday, and I was a bit down this morning, but you know what? Nothing lasts forever. As soon as I can remember that, remember to seize the moment, laugh along the journey, and enjoy the ride, I'm better. It took me a while to get there today, but I did it. Yeah, my car might be barely holding it together, but I have awesome friends, and two legs that work. The best part about walking somewhere? I have the best company in the world - solid black and 4 legged!

Today I went by and took pics of our new truck. I've got a love/hate thing going on with the back of it, but I'll save that for my Wordful Wednesdays.

This weekend I had one of those "Life Before Your Eyes" moments. I was taking money on the back gate at the track, and heard something. I turned around just in time to see a race car barrel rolling towards me. I had just enough time to process "Holy . . ." as it came to a stop. Fortunately, no one was even bruised, but it was enough to kick my adrenaline into high dose. Took me just a tiny bit to get my hands to stop shaking. I don't have a "Before", but here's the after:

Yeah, not good! It's another "check" in the belief system that when it's your time, it's your time. There's no arguing with it. Just like where this guy walked away, I've seen fender benders where someone got killed. What do you think? I believe you can certainly speed up that time line, but there's no way to drag it out.

This week I'll be a whopping 33. I've been thinking about where I've been, where I am now, and where I'm going. I'm still working on it. Does anybody ever actually end up where they thought that they would?

I'm 43 and I definitely did not end up where I thought I'd be.

I thought I be married for 19 years, several kids, a large home. So, not the case.

I would have been married for 19 years if I stayed with my ex.

I would have had kids if I didn't have cancer.

Still in original starter home.

However, I have since remarried, traveled the world, walked a marathon, hiked the Grand Canyon and know to appreciate life.

If you have great friends in your life and can laugh, you are way ahead of the game!
