Sometimes life throws you curve balls and you expect it.
It still rocks you but you stand pretty firm.
Then sometimes there are those curve balls you were not expecting.
The ones that rock you to the core and leave you going, “What just happened?!”
It’s funny how an email and phone call can change your world in amazing ways you did not see coming in a million years.
Not long ago I wrote about how I have to get through a situation to get over it.
I had pull away from a situation with a friend who had stepped outside of reality for a bit.
Not that I blamed them, I just couldn’t follow their anguish and destruction down that particular rabbit hole.
I stepped away.
It seems like that was ages ago.
So many things have happened in life but I never forgot the core of that person and how good they could be. I couldn’t forget how much fun we have and how we enjoy each other’s company.
Then randomly I got an email that moved me to my core.
I knew deep down in my soul that I could no longer stay away.
I had to know if they too had been able to get through and over the hurdles of their own demons.
I called and ended up on the phone talking for an hour.
Then I got another email this morning that surprised me regarding possible employment. A friend that my friend felt I would really bond with who needed someone like me.
I received a phone call and instantly adored the lovely lady I talked too.
Bonus is I have an interview which is more like a formality due to our shared passion of helping others.
Proceeding on with my day in a better than average mood I went to my eye appointment.
I don’t think I have ever had so much fun and girl bonding at a “doctor’s appointment’!
It seems my vision has deteriorated a bit but I can still get the contacts I want but had to get new glasses due to the vision issues.
They are so cool and I can’t wait! I will be so happy to see clearly again and will definitely put up a photo or two!
My life is coming into sharper focus and now I will be able to actually see sharper and better!
After several hours I finally left and went to watch the boy do his karate thing. Since he is with his father, I went and had dinner with an old friend.
It ended up being one of those dinners that is a conversation that just keeps going. You don’t want it to end because you can’t believe that you found each other again, especially after the trauma of the past, and here you are together because you were both able to move through and past. Filling each other in on what we missed in each other’s lives and sharing those inside jokes you thought had been buried in the trunk in the attic are the stuff happiness is made of.
I got to ride in a convertible, and oh what a fabulous ride it was, with the top down, wind in my hair and just that feeling of freedom! The joy of the open road, no words needed because you’re on the same page and you can feel the universe smile.
So I have to say it was a good day.
I hope your day is fabulous too!
Here’s hoping for a fabulous week my friends!
Keep Hope Alive!
