Discovering toys buried in the closet, box by box.
Life is hard, often harder than we expect. This is not a bad thing, but it’s the way it is. It’s good for human beings to acknowledge that. Our best laid plans are laid to waste, and sometimes circumstances work in our favor in ways we do not expect. Fortune and failure seem to have an ab and flow, and success is not the result of having ongoing fortune but rather, the ability to turn the failures into valuable experiences and continue to move in the direction one wants.
Unexpected time at the mechanic
Life is full of surprises. Sometimes they are not convenient; that does not mean, however, that they are “bad”. Inconvenience can create opportunity. I had one such experience today, and I felt it worthwhile to share.
I went to the mechanic for an oil change that should have taken less than 90 minutes. While waiting, I was informed that I had a broken caliper on the driver’s side, and it was leaking break fluid, he took me to the garage and showed it to me.
This was not convenient.
