To be really specific, I’m Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Now that I think about it, maybe I’ll move to Australia.
I really can’t form words to express what exactly happened today, so I’m going to focus on the things that I learned. Maybe, you will piece the details together yourself.
1) ALWAYS Carry Cash.
I had just finished a meal at a restaurant today when I realized, my debit card was missing. After a few panicked breathes and a text to my parental unit, I realized I had probably just left it at home. However – knowing that gave me peace of mind, but it didn’t pay for my meal… Thankfully I was able to find some cash in my purse and cover the meal.
2) Get yourself an insurance agent with a sense of humor.
The last thing I needed when I had to call my agent today was another lecture. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised by his quick and timely laugh in the middle of a stressful situation. Also, recounting our phone call makes a great story, a much better story than the reason I had to call him! So – if you are now looking for an insurance agent with a sense of humor, I can hook you up!
3) At some point, don’t forget to laugh!
Bad things are going to happen. Bad days are a part of life. Sometimes you can feel like the world is trying to wreck your good mood, and sometimes the world will succeed. Through the days like today, I focus on the things that make my heart happy. Thing like, coaching wonderfully funny little boys, catching the end of play practice for my favorite little man, and coming home to my Amazon package that finally arrived. (Because you know Prime just isn’t fast enough.)
Take some time to enjoy the good parts of a bad day, and if all else fails, just call my insurance agent – I’m sure he will make you laugh!
