It is easy, in my estimation, to let immediate circumstance dictate one’s outlook. Today, I was headed to a birthday party with a friend I hadn’t seen in a long time, however there were some things to do before I was ready. Among these, picking up a gift card as a present. It was not until the third store that I found an Amazon gift card for under fifty dollars. That, coupled with a very unsatisfactory lunch—it was really dreadful—topped off with a stupid argument and a plethora of little nicks in my morning, put a foul expression on my face.
The thought of the party was completely eclipsed, I let it be eclipsed, by the ‘bad luck,’ of the day. But, the end of the day was better than the beginning, and a good time was had by all. It makes me think that the circumstances of life, the kind that make me want to quit, are really just distractions keeping me from getting to the party.
How about a good song?
