Have you ever had signs that you know is blinking bright neon? I am not very good at actually paying attention to those….
It has been a very rigorous couple of weeks. (Understatement…) I thrive better in controlled well planned situations. However, chaos is fun. Especially when I can see what needs to be done.
Last Friday, I had a sign that I really need to just slow down. Getting in my car, I am making sure I have everything- purse (check), chai (check), gym bag (check), phone (check). Smile. I’m happy. However, with my mind already on work and my workout after school (yes, I love thinking about my workouts!), I did not put my phone in my purse….. I left it on the hood of my car….
So, I’m driving to work and suddenly hear a thump. I actually thought I ran over something. I pulled over to see if I hit some animal. Nope. I continue on to work when I suddenly realize that I cannot find my phone. It takes all of two seconds to realize that the thump was my iPhone. Sigh…. I guess that OtterBox was tested!
I was so angry at myself. But I took it for what it meant. S-L-O-W Down! One thing at a time.
I will go and get another phone this week. In the meantime, I just plan on soaking in life. At work, I will work. When I workout, I will workout. When I’m at home, I will enjoy being surrounded by family, comfort, and love. Keeping this in mind might save the next phone I purchase this week!
