I’m obsessed with the color yellow. From the palest to the most saturated hues, I love them all. I like to add to the bright color with even more brights as I have styled below. I wore grey jeans to make the scarf and bag pop.
Speaking of yellow, I’m not sure if you have ever shopped at Sole Society, but you should check it out! I just bought these and these and can’t wait to incorporate them into my wardrobe. Click on this link to get 20% Off from Sole Society. If you do, definitely let me know what you scored!
Today’s lesson I have for you all is to s-l-o-w d-o-w-n. Yesterday morning in my usual rush out of the door, I was reversing out of the garage when I heard a cracking sound, like I was driving over some ice. So, I did what I usually do when I’m driving over ice in my SUV, slam down on the gas pedal. No sooner did I do that, when I heard glass shatter and my entire rear windshield was in the trunk of my car. I hadn’t noticed the garage door was not completely open, but was down about a quarter of the way. I am now waiting for hubs to return from work and help me sort out this situation, since now the garage door is bent and the car is ruined. Looks like that not only will I be on the phone to set up an appointment to fix my car, I’ll also be on the internet to Visit Website of a good garage door company that can sort out this mess. I’m not looking forward to the fact that I will NEVER live this down and I’m sure plenty of new jokes will be created at my expense. To make matters worse, I just got my car detailed after months of procrastinating. Figures. I just hope that I can quickly find a company like this charlotte Garage Door repair company in my area, and have this mess sorted. Only then would it be possible for the others to let me be and forget about this incident.
However, there is a part of me that is relieved that the damage wasn’t any worse. Sure, it wasn’t ideal, the rear windshield needs replacing and I’ll probably need some car dent repair done on the area where it hit the garage door, but it is much better than having my car written off. In fact, something similar happened to my friend the other week. She was driving on the road near her house, and got rear-ended through no fault of her own causing more damage than she would’ve liked. Good thing she had collisions covered on her insurance policy with The Hartford (check out the hartford auto insurance review here). She managed to get it fixed and with most of the costs covered. Now I have to go through a similar process with my own car. Again, I’m just super grateful that it wasn’t any worse.
I realized the only time I do not have my iPhone attached to my hand is when I’m doing yoga. Maybe that is why I love yoga so much because it forces me to step away from all of the “noise” of life. I’m always multi-tasking. My resolution was to focus on the task at hand and compartmentalize my life – work, home, blog, etc. That hasn’t really happened yet.
I was watching Mary in Downton Abbey sitting on a bench in the garden – just enjoying the view – and I thought, could I ever do that? I think I’d feel like I needed to have a book or a phone or something or I’d be completely bored. Bored, but free of car damage.
I am now going to make an effort to slow it down a little more. Maybe I will force myself to wake up about 20 minutes earlier so that I’m not in a rush for a change. I’ll limit my email and instagram checking to a few times a day. I will stop texting and driving. Even at red lights. Wish me luck!
I hope you take my advice, slow it down a little if you can, so you don’t have to learn the hard way like me!
