A BLOG-able Moment
June 7, 2011 § 1 Comment
I was super sore today from yesterday’s double Kardio Dance Sessions. I must have pulled some serious muscles out of hibernation. All I could think about was going home and relaxing after work. At 4:30 on the dot I said good-bye to my boss and headed out the door. As I am pulling into the nice shaded spot under the tree in my condo community BAM
What’s that you ask? Maybe we need a little close up:
Yes that is a big ole’ gash in my tire…I hit the curb 😦 Who know that the curb would jump out at me like that? I bought the tires on January 28, 2011 so they aren’t even that old. I didn’t realize I had a gash until I took Miss Darla Marla on a walk and noticed it. Booo! But instead of getting too stressed out about it, I made a plan. I would text my boss, ask her if I could work from car dealership tomorrow and come in when I was done – she was totally cool with that. My weigh in went out the window at that point. My next issue was getting to Boga (Barre Class). If I couldn’t weigh in, I definitely didn’t want to miss exercise. One of my friends wanted to try Boga and she could easily drive by my house to get there so I asked if she would pick me up. Not only did she pick me up but offered to help me with my car. So after a kick butt session at Boga, Julie came over and helped put on my donut. My next-door neighbor saw us working and stepped in to help as well 🙂
Breathe in Breath out everything is going to be OK. I’ll get a new tire tomorrow and an alignment and hopefully be on my way.
Two days ago I posted about pathways and being presented with different opportunities. This tire incident was a good example of this (even though it’s a small one). Yesterday after work I went to the mall to get a pair of Reebok Flex shoes. The first store I went in didn’t have them, the second store I went in had them but I couldn’t get the girl to help me and the third store I went to only had one color – which was one I didn’t like.
After the first store I kind of had a sneaking suspicion that maybe I wasn’t supposed to buy new sneakers maybe something else was coming up that I needed to spend my money on. When I was at the second store and the girl wouldn’t help me (she was seriously avoiding me at all costs) I could have pushed for her to help me, I was one of 2 people in the store and easily could have forced her for service. Something told me to walk away. At the third store when they only had the one color, I was tempted but I knew those shoes weren’t in my cards, so I held off.
Voila! Now I get to see what that money was meant for. MY CAR!
Have you ever had a sneaking suspicion that there was a reason why things weren’t working out for you? Maybe it wasn’t the correct path? Whether if it was as small as sneakers or something much larger?
