Think positive

Last week I bought a book on positive thinking, I thought I'd need again a better perspective on life. Along the lines, there are no bad experiences, but it comes down to how you evaluate things.
Since then ironically everything goes wrong!
That same day, Yumi has completely rolled in the  shit, she stank 10 miles against the wind and the bad, I was still with the car there and had to take this dog home again. My car smelled like a rolling shithouse.
What was the good news now?
That the fur was very soft and fluffy again, after I had bathed and shampooed it?

Yesterday I picked up my son from the station, he came from a visit from grandpa and grandma back in the Allgäu (Bavaria close to the alps).
When I wanted to go home with him the car didn't start.

Presumably it is the fuel pump ...., the good news is, it's probably still under warranty because the car is only 1,5 years old. The bad news is they are waiting for another car on the replacement part for 3 weeks!
Tomorrow, we really wanted to go to Belgium for camping.
And now? Lucky it didn't happening on the road somewhere in Belgium and luckily we don't have to sit in the rain and cold in the tent?

Strangely, all this makes me absolutely nothing, I'm still in good spirits and still smiling!

more time for creativem(n)ess....

with luck soon at my new favorite place again...

I think it's good if it just confirms that you're basically a very positive person anyway. But bad doggie, Yumi!

It's your attitude that counts! :) - shit happens as they say to all of us at one time or another and it sounds like your recent bout with inconvenience and delay hasn't changed your good mood- so that books got nothing on you :)

Ouch... I would have been a nerve wreck by then! I'm used to our dogs rolling over all kinds of dead animals, or shit - or even eating both of those, so I probably would have just shrug my shoulders after another incident like that... :D

But car trouble - that's what really gets to me! As soon as I even see a warning light go on, I totally freak out. Usually it happens when I'm on my way to work in the middle of nowhere, and my husband is out of reach. I just completely hate it!

I hope you'll get things fixed soon, and I hope you will get your trip to Belgium anyway. Have a positive weekend! :)

Love your spirit! And that sketch/painting in the sketchbook is pretty great too.
