When Things Don’t Go Right…
Have you had one of those days, or weeks or even years when things don’t go right? What is “right” anyway? Hasn’t this year been one where more has gone wrong than right?
You may make plans or have an idea in your mind of how things in your life are going to be a certain way, you know life has a way of throwing you a curve. You can ask yourself why, but I find it is better to ask myself what. What can I do in this situation to make the best of it, to embrace it and find those pearls of good.
So…even though I would like to be home and curled up in my bed, I have been on a plane (which made me a bit nervous) and working hard getting our condo for sale in Ohio. If you don’t follow me on on Instagram, you may have missed this photo I shared of the view that I will miss. Our high rise condo was a great place to live, but through this pandemic, we have learned we don’t ‘need’ a second home. We have had three offers that we have accepted and have all fallen through. So, we thought we had the place sold and had planned to come up to Ohio to empty out the condominium. Alas, we went ahead and came up, and did the work anyway. If you want to see how our condo looked when we moved in, you can visit Modern Home Tour and Modern Home Tour ~ Part 2.
Of course, especially this year, we have to look for the blessings around us, particularly when things are going wrong. I have found particular joy in the colorful leaves in Ohio. If we had not made this trip up here, I would not have been able to enjoy these beautiful colors.
When I get home I will get to continue to enjoy the beautiful colors of the decorations on my front porch and delight in the season and coming Thanksgiving. I hope that more things are going right than going wrong for you right now. I am worried today about my dear friend Chas of Chas’ Crazy Creations. Her condominium in Colorado is danger from the fires. Remember to be kind and understanding. You never know what someone else is going through! You can do this!
