Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Today started a little….on the rough side. So I got up and got dressed for work, left on time and everything- only to get there and not have a way in. This seems to be a common theme with my place of work, I need a key but have been waiting on that for the longest. Of course, I see that I got a text message saying I could come into work an hour later- while I am standing outside the door! Slowly but surely, I felt the irritation rising as I looked at my mom who sat waiting in the car. She had to go to school early today because of exams, so this little inconvenience not only affected me but her as well. If I was a lighter complexion, I think she would have seen the redness on my cheeks and the steam rising off of me.
A man’s heart deviseth his way, but the Lord directeth his steps. Proverbs 16:9
So I’m back home, because of unfortunate circumstance, missing a day of work because of the lack of responsibility. I could do one of two things: wallow in irritation or change my perception of the situation. Instead of thinking about today being a day of lost wages, I’ll see it as a free spa day: one where I lounge at home, wash my hair, do my nails and just relax! I start another job in the morning, and I need to be really rested for that position.
Today’s case of unfortunate events was just an avenue for a blessing in disguise.
Instead of work and stress, I will be accompanied by peace and relaxation today and I choose to view my day in a new light. I am blessed, whether I am in the office or not. I am blessed whether I am strutting in my heels or my house slippers. I am still blessed.
SO like me, today may have started a little rough. It may have been super extensive and annoying in the beginning but I bet if you look at your situation you can see the blessing just waiting to be acknowledged. There is always a blessing in disguise.
P.S. Did I mention that I left my phone in my mom’s car ….. Oh well. guess I am supposed to be unplugged today!
Until next time,
