You’ve heard of Murphy’s Law right? You know, where anything that can go wrong, will go wrong? Yeah, it’s part of being alive. And there’s no way around it. Some days are worst than others. Sometimes, it could last a whole week (a month) as if someone has cast an evil spell on you. It’s will always remain as one of those mysteries.
Not so long ago, my car broke down in the middle of a busy street. I rolled up my sleeves, pushed the SUV to safety, and ended up soaked with rain and sweat on an early Monday morning. Days before, I left my keys inside the car, in an area with no phone reception, and had to walk a couple of yards to contact a locksmith — who then charged me a crazy amount of money for such a simple solution. A year ago, my battery died. And there was an auto shop a couple of blocks down where I can trade the battery in for a new one since I had a warranty. Turns out, it was about 15 blocks. Try walking that with a car battery and back.
You might say, I have a car problem. I’m glad you did because I just got a brand new one. Not new-new, but definitely newer than the piece of beauty I had. You might also say, I need friends. Well, friends are not always there for you. And I’m not trying to say that in a bad way. People have lives.
I can go on and on with more car stories, money stories, and just life stuff. Stories that one day made me hate the world for that split second or hour.
As bad as “bad things” are, there’s always some good and something greater around the corner. But let’s be real though and not sound cliche here. Sometimes there isn’t anything good around the corner and that’s ok. It’s all part of the human experience.
