I Don’t Want to Adult Anymore

Ever have one of those days, weeks or months that make you want to crawl in a hole, go on a permanent vacation, or just stop adulating all together??

I have good moments and I sure have my share of frustrating little moments too. For example this morning I started my day by waking up and as always grabbed my phone to see how much

time I had left to sleep. ..the answer was NONE, I had overslept an hour! Immediate panic mode, 20 min to get up and get out of the house to make it for my 6am client!!! In my mad rush toward the kitchen for coffee I stepped in something somewhat wet and squishy….apparently my dog had gotten sick during the night and my foot found it before I even flipped the lights on. DAMMIT!!!!
After a brief abundance of curse words I talked myself out of completely going bat shit crazy and muttered to the dog that this was NOT how I planned on starting my day. (I did still make the coffee though)
Upon getting to work and still a bit frazzled three of my clients contacted me to reschedule. In my head I was screaming “are you kidding me today!!!??
So Monday morning and I didn’t get along, later it will be better …right??? IĀ  left an hour early that afternoon to squeeze in a workout before my evening clients. As I headed out it just started to rain, but I made it into the car before it poured, things were looking up!! I was less than 5 min from the gym at a light when I was bumped 2 feet forward. …some woman used my rear bumper to slow her roll ….DAMMIT!! The hour I planned to train was spent in the rain receiving an apology and insurance information. Just my luck I thought to myself. Missed my opportunity to workout, was soaked to the core, and had to keep my shit together so I could train my clients. Did I yell “DAMMIT!!”??

To top off the day, I made a quick stop at the grocery store. Unpacking my goods I knew something wasn’t right..I was missing a few items…that would be the bag still at the checkout line back at the store….DAMMIT!!!! I GIVE UP!!

Instead of crawling into a hole and crying like i wanted to, I forced a mediocre smile and gave a little thought to a recent conversation with my dad. He said “in life bad things happen, things go wrong, life happens, death happens, accidents happen, and yes it’s upsetting, frustrating and sometimes down right depressing, but we cannot avoid these events; we can however choose to get past it, and LET IT GO.” Although easier said than done, despite the monstrosities today, I feel blessed to have what I have, know people I know & love my family.

Some things take time to overcome, and that’s alright, but we are meant to enjoy life, celebrate its good moments and smile whenever possible. So if your day was anything like mine, don’t worry about it; things could always be worse and we get the chance to overcome an entirely new set of obstacles tomorrow.

    Tara I know all about those kinds of days. Seems everyday at work is like that. I am being squeezed by two corporations at the saame time. One is my employer, the other is the corporation that I am contracted to work at. Some days I want to stomp my feet and cry, but I choose to mostly smile my way through the day. In my head I could be cussing up a storm.LOL.!! That said Dad is right, let it go. Sometimes easier than other times. Love you Aunt Sandy

      I certainly do not miss those days, no matter what we do life is full of surprising ways to tip the apple cart!!! Luckily we were raised to put our big girl panties on and forge through the day!!
