Ever wake up on your own 10 minutes before your alarm is set to go off?
I hate that.
That happened to me this week…but not really on my own. No, I had the helpful assistance of a woodpecker hacking away on our wooden plank siding. I was just throwing on some clothes to shoo it away when I heard it –the sound that makes every parent’s skin crawl.
The baby cried.
The whole scene was so random and comical I decided that I was meant to wake up. I could’ve been pissed; but instead I allowed it to roll and see an opportunity for a good day.
Recently a friend challenged me to not allow the negatives in my life cloud over the opportunities for good in the moment.
Thanks friend. I hate you and love you.
But you’re right, and I can’t help but wonder what opportunities I’ve missed because I’m mad at randomness.
