Wait till you hear about this trip!!!! It has seriously been exactly like a Chevy Chase vacation movie. A jillion things went wrong and yet I had the time of my life! I laughed sooooo much. ??? I broke my permanent retainer, I got a black eye from an allergic reaction to gluten. I was in two different car accidents, was almost driven off a hill, watched a car hit multiple things five feet in front of me, and was in a scooter accident on the highway, where I broke three toes, sprained my ankle, and had lots of bruising. After that, I fell and the scooter landed on me because I was trying not to use my injured foot, while driving the scooter out of a huge storm. After the foot injury, it also got ran into by someone, and then I got dropped on that foot on a rocky trail. I got 2 boils and cut my hand on a piece of broken glass while emptying out the trash. I had the worst allergies I’ve EVER had every day -mucus everywhere, bloodshot eyes- and I got a sinus infection. I had an allergic reaction in a restaurant, my eyes got swollen and I had to leave the restaurant and eat outside. And I’m pretty sure I saw a dead person.
And you know what I learned? In life, you are out of control, you never know what will and will not happen, but if you have someone to love you through it and laugh at the absurdity of it all, even the hard stuff can help you come alive. It can either be frustrating or a glorious adventure. Trusting that it will all work out enables you to enjoy the ride instead of getting mad at what you can’t control. It’s all about laughing often, never giving up, and finding the fun in every moment.#lovedtheadventure #happyheart#feelingalive
