"As I say yes to life, life says yes to me!"
I don't really do personal blog posts much since my niche is more motivating and lifestyle, but I just had to blog to blog today.
I got into an accident last Tuesday, two days before the big ole Turkey Day. I deer ran in the middle of a major highway and as you know, one of the most heaviest travel time is Thanksgiving and Christmas. Of course, I was the only one affected by the deers nature to cross the road looking for food. I don't blame him. But aren't they supposed to be smart animals who can sense danger. HELLO... DANGER!!! YOU"RE NEAR A FREAKING HIGHWAY!!
Needless to say, my car is totaled, thank God for the fact the deer didn't come inside my car that would have been an even major issue, I may not even be here today writing my frustration if that were to have been the case.
I've been without a car for NINE DAYS and I am going CRAZY!! State Farm, who I pay hundreds of dollars to every six months is being so lackadaisical about my car getting it done "on their own time."
THAT'S NOT WHAT I PAY YOU FOR, I PAY YOU TO WORK AND FIX MY CAR, NOT FOR IT TO SIT SOMEWHERE COLLECTING DUST AND HOPEFULLY NOT RUST. Since now it's literally rained almost every day and there was even a tornado sighting yesterday where my car is now. Yippie!
I understand it was a holiday and but you are a HUGE company who doesn't let your employees take off for Thanksgiving, so, if that's the case, then why is my car STILL SITTING THERE. Why nine days later FINALLY, after putting pressure and fire on their behinds is an inspector coming out today?
I feel like I have gone through the 5 stages of grief and I'm on being pissed off now. It's funny how those steps literally work for any major crisis in your life.
I also feel like I stepped back a decade and I'm my 15 year old self who doesn't have a car again, who's relying on others to drive me around and waiting all the time. I can't even take my anger out on the stair climber because I have no car to get to the gym.
Gosh, what did I do to have this happen?
The past nine days I've thought about it a lot, I've thought about time and timing. If I were to have taken longer eating or at Target or driven slower would the deer have passed me or was it meant to hit me?
Time has become so important to me. Just think about time and how a second or one minute changes everything.
If it had hit someone else, would that other person caused a massive destruction on HWY 22? I think about that also. I also think about that damn deer crossing the damn road. Could he have just waited...
All these thoughts. All these emotions. All this built up anger and resentment.
Hopefully my car is fixable. I think that would be the best outcome because at this moment.
