Has this ever happened to you?

I hope not:). I didn’t eat much this AM,and my hubby works late today, so I thought I’d just eat the leftover turkey spaghetti we’d had the night before. It was spicy and delicious and I thought with a glass of milk it would make a great light supper.

Whoops! Slipped right out of my hand on the rug I’d washed yesterday. Cooked with olive oil, I figured the rug was gone. BECAUSE I PRACTICE what I preach, instead of doing what I would have years ago,
swearing, yelling, maybe being all ticked off, I just looked at the mess and laughed! How funny. Not
what I’d planned, and yet, it was okay. Really a mess, but it smelled good.

I am ever so grateful for my work in health and fitness (keeps me rockin’). Even more, I am glad for my work specializing in stress management and relaxation techniques. It keeps my sanity!

Life always throws something our way and we always have the choice of how to handle it and respond.
So I kept on thinking, “how did that slip out of my fingers”, kept on laughing, gathered it all up and headed for the spray and wash and threw it in the washer.

I just refuse to let anything steal my joy. Only took a few minutes to get the rug in the washer (I picked up the glass dish – pieces anyway – swept the floor, and took a breath. It’s all good!
