So I lost my wallet. And I heard twice now, in searching for it, the reply, “But you seem so happy still.” Well, yeah. And also, why is this surprising????!
Did I get worried? Sure. It’s hard to be without ID or money just as business hours are ending for the week and I am beginning my call at the hospital. And it’s a hassle. I doubt anyone loves losing these sorts of possessions.
But I can’t change what has happened. In fact, I get how it happened – have you ever been a much too tired resident/student/parent/human? If your energy goes to your patients or other responsibilities, less is left for, quite simply, you.
And I can’t worry it to appear. It is somewhere in this universe and for some reason, it’s not meant to be with me 🤷♀️
Accepting what is relieves a lot of stress. Forgiving yourself handles the rest.
But truth be told, in so many other ways, I am happy. I am having a good day. I am safe.
It’s lost opportunity to smile if I let something I can’t control affect me.
So yup. Hey there Neighbor and Friend. I did lose my wallet and I’m not letting even that keep me from all the reasons I have to be happy today ☺️
Here’s wishing you a weekend where you can let those little things go. For joy in the moment!
