Enjoy the Ride

You know, lately I’ve been thinking that it’s all too easy to get caught up in the negative of the world. It can be easy to get dragged into the muck and let hard experiences get you down. Take this weekend for example, I had a great weekend home celebrating one of my best girls and my awesome dad, but on the way home I found out my debit card number had been stolen and my account was frozen while they investigated the fraud and are sending me a new card. And if this hasn’t happened to you, let me just tell y’all it’s a colossal pain in the booty!! I do all my banking and bill pays through my debit card online and I’m going to have to update everything– uuggghhh! It would be easy to go into a funk. It would be easy to be a crabby-pants about it. But instead I’m choosing to find the good! I’m relishing in 7-10 days (however long it takes to get my new card to me- ha!) in which I can’t shop, so I’m embracing what I have. I’m taking Buddy on extra-long walks & taking myself on extra-long runs. I’m enjoying extra time with friends. And you know what? It feels good! Great even! 

I always like to keep in mind one of my favorite quotes, “Life is like riding a bicycle, in order to keep your balance you have to keep moving forward.” 

So embrace the forward motion y’all (and the crazy) and keep on trucking 🙂
