Shit Happens

I thought I was stranded.

I’ve never been to Washington DC. I’ve never been outside of Canada by myself, either. And having quite a history of having panic attacks at inopportune times, let’s just say I was expecting the worst, when I found out my bus ticket had been mixed up.

All is well, now. I just think everyone could use a reminder now and then that sometimes, things don’t work out exactly the way we plan, nor the way we think we want them to.

So. Next time something has you stressed because it’s not going according to plan, here’s what to do:

1 Take a deep breath.

2 And another.

3 When you’re breathing normally and feel calmer, try to think rationally about all your options. Believe me, one is most capable of logical thinking when calm, so…

4 Take more deep breaths!

And remember, it will be okay!

Sending y’all love from the road,
