Good Morning Flamelings!
Let’s talk about being an adult.
I was in a multi-car accident this week. Thankfully everyone was okay. Unfortunately I was the car in the middle. I got hit from behind and then I got shoved forward into the car in front of me. Everyone involved knows what happened but in these situations there’s always anxiety about whether everyone will do the right thing.
I’m 40 years old and I’ve only owned a car for 6 years. Before that, I took public transportation, walked or rode my bike. Having a car introduces a lot of experiences that I would consider new and overwhelming such as being in a wreck and having to deal with insurance and repairs.
While I am trying to remember to be thankful that I am okay, my inner self is whining because I have to be an adult. It is situations like this that makes me want to stick my fingers in my ears and yell ‘la la la I can’t hear you’ until it goes away magically.
What are some of your ‘everyday’ kind of experiences that make you want to stick your fingers in your ears until it goes away?
