It is amazing how much good I am able to find in a day when I choose to focus on smiling instead of complaining. I am learning to remind myself that the little frustrations and annoyances in life just make the good even sweeter.
I was so SALTY early this morning because the 6:30 am commuter bus for my community has not been showing up on Friday's - for NO reason! I'm telling you it set me in a downward spiral of anger and negative energy.
Then I remembered how much I like solving problems and the only real way to solve this problem was to lodge a formal complaint with the Metro system that maintains the bus schedules and regulates the bus operators. I decided to represent myself and my fellow riders and I let go of my attachment to the outcome.
You see, once you have done all YOU can do, taken all avenues to resolve the situation - it is out of your hands and out of your control.
After I filled out the complaint form and hit send - I was free to enjoy all that is GOOD about my day!
