Motivational Monday: Always Look for the Good
For me, Sundays are my downtime to chill and unwind after the family and I go to church.
My wife's car tire had a slow leak in for weeks, and since she was going out of town, I decided yesterday I will get her tire fixed. I went to our preferred Wal-mart, and their tire calibration machine was out of order so I went to another location. The frustration was already setting in.
I got there, and after waiting in line, I finally was able to talk to the auto center manager. After getting some information, she said that the wait would be 3 hours! Thankfully I brought my cigars, a lounge chair, and my laptop.
About two and a half hours later, because they were short-staffed, my tire was fixed.
I rushed home to pick up my family to head to our life group. LIfe Austin church has life groups where you meet with members in a smaller setting and talk about anything. Yesterday was our first one, and my wife and I enjoyed it.
The moral to that story is that I was quite upset about my usual Sunday relaxation being interrupted.
On my way to church, I expressed to my wife that I'm gonna have all these consecutive days without a break, but after talking with her, I realized that it could be worse.
Sure I'm busy, but I'm employed.
Sure it's frustrating waiting so long for a tire to be fixed, but we have a vehicle.
Sure things can be aggravating, but my wife and I have each other.
My motivation for you is to be positive, be great, and always look at the silver lining. Even though I try to be as positive as I can, I sometimes think negatively, and I did that yesterday.
After giving it some thought, I realized I'm blessed to be in the position I'm in.
