Everyday is joyful
August 6, 2013 § 6 Comments
It’s rather difficult to stay positive even when you are determined to find the joy in life. For example, getting in the car to drive. It can be super easy to lose joy while driving especially in LA.
I decided that I would go to a renovated Starbucks that was a few miles away the apartment instead of going to the one that is a five second drive from the apartment. I was excited to redeem my reward from Starbucks Gold Card reward system. I found my joy in getting coffee, putting on my sparkle Chuck Taylors and getting out in this beautiful California weather. The fun began when I was pulling out of the gate at the apartment and a person was being weird. I guess the were trying to turn around but they were blocking me from getting out safely and I was blocking them from doing what they were trying to do. Thankfully, I got out into the street safely, but I did want to yell at the person. As I continue my drive I was stopped at a stop light where I was going to turn right. In case you didn’t know, people in LA street park every where. Therefore, it makes it difficult to see if cars are coming in the right hand lane. The person behind me decided I was taking too much time to turn right, so they honked. It really upset me because I was just trying to be a safe driver. I may have said some not so nice things out loud. As I stopped at the next light I realized how ridiculous it was that I let those two drivers annoy me. No one can steal my joy. So I then got excited again because I was on my way to Starbucks to get coffee and write an encouraging post all while wearing my sparkle Chuck Taylors.
