14 more days until we move in.
Until then- let’s look at the bright side.
I’ve been having a rough day. Currently, I’ve been hopping from wi-fi hotspot to wi-fi hotspot because, for some reason, at the place I’m staying- my laptop and my future roommate’s router aren’t behaving, so I can’t log onto the internet there. Normally I’d live with it, however, I need to file my taxes and most importantly- I need the internet in order to do my part time job.
I’m usually a roll with the punches kind of kid, but for some reason today- I’ve been struggling to keep up. I’ve been sick for a week now. Last week I was misdiagnosed at Urgent Care. The doc said that I had a 24 hour stomach bug because of something that I ate. Turns out that the bug is a contagious stomach virus that got two other people really sick. The virus took down my appetite so I haven’t been eating like I should be. In turn, my immune system got weak and I have a cold now. Earlier today I wanted to throw in the towel, call it a bad day, and be miserable.
Then I realized something. My stepdad is known for saying this phrase: you should be focused on life giving and not life taking.
What use am I if I’m just going to be miserable? It’s a huge waste of energy. Yeah, my situation really sucks right now and I wish that things could be different. Guess what? I can’t change anything. The best I can do is deal with what’s going on and try to make something out of nothing.
So I did what any normal 23 going on 24 year old would do and I went to the Crossings at Colonie so I could swing on the swingset. It was a mood booster when I was 4 and it still feels awesome at (almost) 24. It was so funny because I’m a short person, but I was still a little too tall for the swings. A couple of minutes into it, my feet caught the pavement and I came to a sudden stop! I was surprised by this, as was the 4 year old across from me. She looked up from the sandbox and said:
“Are you ok?” Her mouth was wide open and she gave me a concerned gaze.
I smiled at her, and then I laughingly said, “Yep! I’m alright! I’m just a little too tall for these. Thanks though!” It was such an adorable moment.
The best is yet to come and babe, won’t it be fine?
