The Flat Tire


A year ago today, I was stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire. We were headed to a concert and pulled into Starbucks for a quick cup of coffee, when we looked down and noticed the flat. My thoughts immediately jumped straight to doom and gloom. I thought great, is this how we are going to stat this new year? Is this a sign of the the things to come?

It didn’t take long for my husband to put the donut on and we were on our way. It wasn’t a sign at all. In fact, it wasn’t a big deal at all. Pay attention to what really matters and don’t make a bigger deal out of the things that don’t. Just accept things as they come with as little judgement as possible and keep moving on. Don’t remain stuck with a tire that is no longer flat. Happy New Year.

  1. I was just thinking this morning of how I too get ‘stuck’ on a flat tire. I let things build up until I blow my own tire at times, as well. One of my goals this year is to read my own tire gauge and to decompress before I combust. Thank you for writing this. I really enjoy your perspective and it always makes me more self-aware. I had a rough couple of days over Christmas, but when your blog would pop up in my email I would find a few moments of peace. I feel like you’re a friend I’ve never met 🙂 Thank you.
