Surprise Disasters Bring Sunny Outcomes #thursdaythoughts #amwriting

May the very best outcomes find youThursday morning, after feeding my new sweet baby rescue pups, I heard a loud crash come from somewhere inside my house. The pups and I looked up. My heart pounded faster. Quickly, I scoured the house and nothing seemed awry. Kansas City temperatures have been dangerously low these past few days and I thought a huge branch or something might have fallen on the roof. Yet, nothing turned up. Not until I stepped into the garage, hit the button for the garage door, and strangely the door wouldn’t open. After careful inspection, I noticed the springΒ on the garage door broke. I panicked for maybe 60 seconds since I couldn’t get to work, and this is not the time of year for me to be stuck in my garage. Not in public relations. Not when I’m in charge of some major academic and legislative events.

The good news? The panic has passed. The garage door repair company is on its way, and the lesson is right out there in front of me.

Some days, the day has its own mind. That’s okay. We just have to decide in a moment how we can change our hearts with the new direction. Lucky for me, my new direction involves edits on a second draft of my manuscript while I wait.

We can’t plan everything. Some days we climb hills, and some days we ski with a beautiful finesse right down them. No matter what happens today, may the very best outcomes find you.

Happy Thursday all πŸ™‚

  1. Some cute pups!
    You’ll never forget that sound – trust me on that.

  2. We’ve had that happen before. Twice. Wow, when that spring goes, it’s like a gunshot. There is a manual pull so we can still get the garage open though.

  3. We once had a door knob failure and my kids were stuck in a room. I was in a panic. They thought it was hilarious.

    Your pups are gorgeous! I’m glad it was only a broken spring… could have been so much worse.
