Sorry for the absence, I try to post at least twice a week if not more. However, things have been really busy around here.
So for this week’s reflection is about, when things go wrong, which is perfect as everything seemed to break and need repairs this week.
So a little background to this post.
A couple of weeks ago, the soap/ handle tile piece in the bathroom tube tile fell of ( on my leg unfortunately). So that needed to be repaired. My parents decided to get the bathroom tube/shower and floor gutted and redone for resale value whenever they plan to move. Then my car a couple of days ago would not start, so it needed to be fixed. Then the night before the demo of the bathroom, our a/c started randomly blowing out really hot air. My dad said that the temperature went from 81 degrees to 90 degrees in about and and hour and a half!
So suffice to say, everything went wrong! My parents keep warning us that things happen in threes, which is very true for the bathroom, and the car and a/c.
But in light of all of this it has been a great lesson to me and the rest of my siblings that things do go wrong. We might not plan for it, but when they do happen, we must deal with it. Obviously, the car really needed to be fixed, as we have limited amount of cars for all of us as it is. The bathroom could have just been fixed instead of renovated, but my parents are thinking of resale value as our house is over 20 years old. Even this, opened our eyes to the cost of keeping up a house and updating it. It may not be easy, but that is the responsibility and the cost of owning your own space, which hopefully one day my siblings and I will experience.
So in the end, there is always a positive to when things so wrong. I suppose in the end we do get a brand new bathroom, which is updated from the tiles that it came with 20 some years ago, and that we have our a/c working again, and hopefully soon my car will work again. When things go wrong, thankfully, they don’t stay wrong, and will be remedied, if not immediately, very soon.
I hope you all enjoyed reading this post,
