There have been raging fires in Southern California and though Sam and I have not been evacuated yet, the fires have made me rethink life differently.
First, THANK YOU to the brave firefighters for helping us keep our homes protected. They’ve been working tirelessly as new fires keep popping up! I don’t even know this is happening. The winds have been picking up, which doesn’t make it easy for anyone, but how do new fires just spark overnight? Is it a power line? Is it natural? Is it caused by man? By accident? On purpose? No idea what’s happening but it’s terrible and scary.
Sam and I have been TRYING to drive to work these past few days and we just CANNOT get on the freeway. The other day we were stuck in traffic for about an hour (went less than a mile) before we gave up and went back home. Then today we left the house at 7:30am, and as we drove, the directions keep pushing our ETA to 8:40am, then 9:15am, then 10:00am, then 10:30am…and we decided…nope, we need to cancel our meetings and turn back. We tried so hard for over 2 hours and had only traveled a few miles.
Sometimes, there are things that won’t go as you want them to go – no matter how hard you try. Like, some things are just not meant to be.
I’m sure you’ve had experiences where you try and try and try and try and try and things just go nowhere. The failure and the turning back is not a bad thing. You did not waste time, as terrible as it may feel to fail. You learned. Life is just nudging you to start over and try something new. You can still get to your destination – but you need to try a different time and a different way.
So, sadly, Sam and I were not able to come into the Blogi office for the second day in a row now…and the saddest part is…we were supposed to spend early Halloween with everyone!! (We work from home on Thursdays and Fridays.) At least we are safe though, so I cannot complain any further!
Because I left my Fit Journal at the office, I can’t fill it out until Monday!!! AHHHH!!!! I am DYING!!!! I guess I will have to do my Week 11 Recap without it! I feel so incomplete.
