Just When You Thought It Was Safe . . .

Happy Friday, y’all!  I’m going out on a limb with this one so … T.G.I.F!
Have you ever had those days when you just kind of let your head drop down, almost limp and shake it from side to side??  Well, I had one of those mornings yesterday.  I had actually gone out and started up the car, realized that I had left somethings … went back to get them, came out … and right before my eyes, the car stopped running!!!  Just like that!!  Enough said??!
I can imagine that sometimes “folks” may wonder why I am so forth coming with things … drama … that happen to me!?  First of all, this comes from my heart.  I mean, things go on that I STILL don’t mention and won’t mention … mostly out of respect for others and their “privacy”.  I am pretty open about things because I like folks to know how difficult it can get sometimes … as well as how good it gets, too!  As I’ve mentioned more that once in these writings, you might even meet … know … or be someone like me!  That is, one who sees life as a spiritual journey with the goal of remaining positive, spreading and sharing love and peace, too!  Of course, I work every day and haven’t had as many outside opportunities to earn more money yet …  Reliable transportation is an integral part of that here in South Florida!!
The other reason I write about some of my experiences is two-fold: first, it is therapeutic for me … I don’t get so “caught up” in the stuff if I write it down; and, I don’t take some of the experiences so personally or perhaps, so seriously!!  It really gets to me sometimes, so I employ my own techniques including yoga and meditation to stay balanced.  As far as I know, I have not been “depressed” to the point that I couldn’t handle a “feeling” which led me to feel sad, so to speak.  I am not sure I “know” what that means.  I seldom use the word to describe myself … if ever … though I do know that many humans experience this.  I have the utmost respect for that “dis-ease” as I do for other illnesses like breast cancer!  Yep, my father died from bone marrow cancer … so … I know what death looks like up close and personal.  I don’t fear it … I think … yet I don’t want it yet either!
The regular readers may remember a week or so ago when I began my “car-escapades”, for lack of a better term, and I was expressing that I had “had enough” of this car drama!!  It is very costly, and life altering even, as well as a bit of a challenge!  So, yesterday I called the service manager at Joey Accardi Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep and told him I may bring the car back.  After checking my car insurance, and finding the terms and mileage of the towing benefit, I had the Compass towed there last night!  I also had a chance to chat with my daughter, Ayanna Lynne, who may be going home from the hospital soon with her son, Caleb Isaac.  I am happy for this bit of joy and am clinging to it as Ayanna says that Caleb clings to her!
