Have you ever had one of those days when everything is just going wrong? 😭
Today, I thought I’d wake up early, shower and start my day because I have three Monday deadlines plus another shoot in Santa Monica.
Unfortunately, the Fates had other plans for me. I accidentally backhanded my flat iron, and it landed IN the toilet, and proceeded to turn on and heat up while wet even though I wasn’t using it. When I tried to turn it off, it wouldn’t, and smoke started coming out of it. I had to scramble and unplug it from the outlet, and even then, it took its time turning off!
Waiting for it to cool down and dry before I dealt with it, I tried to clear stuff from my messy counter and put them away in my bathroom cabinet. That’s when very single make-up and hair bottle I had in there started pouring out and just falling all over the place.
At this point, I knew I had to walk away or I’ll start freaking out and crying. So I went to the kitchen to make coffee and calm myself. That’s when I realized that I ran out of beans the day before. Argh! But, of course, I made that discovery only after accidentally breaking my freaking French press, which I’ve had for a couple of years now.
So now, I’m sitting on my couch, resigned to not doing anything for a while. I’ve got deadlines, yes, but things aren’t working out at the moment. And when things aren’t working out, you just gotta learn to walk away. It’s ok to just walk away.
