In the span of 10 minutes, I found the contents of the recycle bin all over the lawn, my car door handle broke off, and I drove over my $100 pedometer on my way to work. I sighed, then smiled and said: Continue reading “Deciding to Have a Good Day”
I spent YEARS of my life marching around the SAME mountain. If I managed to propel my way out, I would march 1,000 times around the next mountain. If I was really lucky, I would propel in the wrong direction – back towards the first mountain! Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

I found myself yelling at my son, we were late to school – again. He was going too slow, we would be late, and it was all HIS fault. I turned to look at my son in the rear view mirror, he was crying.
