What a day.
Do you ever wake up and want to just throw the covers over your head and go back to sleep; or at least, hide from the day?
Well, that’s how today started and for most of the day; I felt as though I should have done just that.
But I woke up and got straight to my tasks, workouts, and more. Feeling a bit tired; I decided to take it easier and this thought made me feel better…
Then, I checked my bank statements and noticed some charges that I didn’t recognize. In looking a bit more closely, I noticed they were three separate charges; from the same company; on the same day; with different amounts.
I checked the company name and looked at their website..it turned out to be a survey page.
Scrambling, I called the bank and asked about it and they went through the usual questions to find out if I had indeed authorized these payments and forgot…but after some questions and answers, it was clear that this was fraud.
Yes, the fun of that issue. I went into the bank branch and found out all the steps I must take but good news overall; it will be reimbursed and we will file a claim.
I also had some minor technicalities with some work and management issues but I said what needed to be said and moved on.
Why did I still want to just hide from the world? Why do we struggle? It sucks, it hurts and we have to find the strength to carry on.
Then we overcome and become better. Kind of like when you break down muscles and they rebuild stronger and larger than before.
So instead of chalking today up to a “terrible” and “difficult” day; I am now going to stand tall and know that I overcame and will only be better tomorrow.
What issues are you currently dealing with? Is there anything you can do to change the circumstances or the outcomes? If so, do it. If not, let it go. Don’t waste time allowing the negativity to suck you in and into the downward spiral. Decide to push agains the current and come out better. You will shine and others will look to you when they need strength.
Now, where’s my blankie and cocoa?
