Yesterday was a pretty rough day for me though you wouldn’t have been able to tell from my posts. I had plenty to complain about if I had chosen to go that way. Just to give you an idea, a glimpse if you will, into how bad yesterday started out, about an hour and a half into my day at the office the zipper on my jeans broke, irreparably. It broke so completely and in such a bad place that I couldn’t get even half of it re-zipped. I walked around all day yesterday with my fly open – including all of my Valentine’s Day shopping and at the office supply warehouse. Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal, I’d just go to a store and pick up a new pair and I’d be fine… However, due to severe extenuating circumstances which I will not detail here, that simply wasn’t advisable.
Now that’s just the first bad thing. I had a truck load after that.
Problems notwithstanding, in times like these I rely heavily on my faith in God – this isn’t for everyone and I’m not about to preach. That’s just the way I roll. I also rely on my #1 Self-Evident Truth, which will be posted shortly after this, and the two have gotten me through thinner times than these. Lastly, I rely on a good hard workout – I’ve written about this before, there’s nothing like a charge of endorphins to brighten a day.
By the end of the day (and after one killer workout on the bike – I love that) my attitude and outlook changed for the better. My major problems of the moment worked out and my wife and I had an excellent Valentine’s Day with our kids, though we fell asleep a little early, curled in a tight ball on the couch.
Congratulations to the Detroit Red Wings – 21 Consecutive Home Wins – a new record.
