It is amazing how what state your mind is in can change you reaction.
I had a meltdown the other day due to hotel room issue.
Tonight I hit a deer for the first time in my life, messed up my car, and messed up my travel plans. I have no idea how much it will cost until tomorrow but I know it will be expensive cause I am in a small town in the middle of no where.
But I am coping better with this serious problem more than I did yesterday with a small problem.
It happened. I can not change that. I was not speeding nor distracted. There were three deer all across the road as I went uphill and I had no time to break. I am thankful I just passed a town and knew I was not far. I was able to get my leaking car back down to a hotel and thankful the hotel had vacancy (and not outrageously priced.) Tomorrow I will try to find a place to get my car fixed. I am thankful I have a credit card for emergencies like this.
I am thankful that even though I am upset, I am not having a mental meltdown again.
I am thankful I am sober.
