What I learned from the hole in the crotch area of my pants

This morning I arrived at work and as I was getting out of the car I just happened to glance at my reflection in the car window and realized that there was a hole in my pants. To be more specific there was a hole in the crotch area of my pants and I was seconds from walking into work. There was no time to drive back home and change. I also did not have extra pants in the car. Note to self, put extra pants in the car for this type of emergency.

I had a decision to make which was to go home and change or go work as is. I decided to go into the building and start my work day. I did end up spending most of the day either in my office or strategically walking while holding something. I text my sister and also a friend letting them know that I had a crotch area hole but God is good and let me discover it before walking into the building and so I am blessed!

In the past something like this would have caused me to be embarrassed for weeks and then to obsessively replay over and over all the people I met who might have noticed the hole. But I find myself not reacting in that way since I started my journey of having a deeper relationship with God.

I did order several new pants online while on my lunch break and I made a note in my planner to take my three sets of pants to a seamstress for repairs. Yes you heard me correctly this current pair of pants joined a group of two other pairs of pants that have crotch area holes. No I’m not doing anything weird to get said holes. I believe that the stitching in that area is not done well and therefore sometimes loosens but that is a conspiracy theory for another time.

The lesson I feel I was meant to learn here is that life will throw me a curveball of a hole in the crotch area type of situation but I can choose to react to it differently and maybe just maybe I will also end up with a hole in the crotch area story to share with my friends.

My Halloween Movie Playlist

I’m a fan of spooky not scary, more fun and adventure filled Halloween movies. Below are my top favorite Halloween movies. They are not all Halloween related, and I would watch them year round but there’s just something delicious about watching them in October.

My birthday . . . . again

Yes it’s my birthday …. again. I wanted to spend it in a cabin deep in some woods somewhere, writing my next script but then Corona. So I’m here, at home. I’m not upset or anything like that in fact I’m happy to be alive, I’m still employed but furloughed on some days and I’m working on a few different things.

I like where my life is going. I feel that I’m working towards the goals that will lead me to where I want to be in the future. I’m working on my relationship with God and that has helped in making other areas of my life better.

I had a dream recently where I met this man and when I woke up I understood that he was my guy. This dream was such a wonderful gift! I know that God will send him to me when we are both ready for each other and for now I just need to stay the course of working on me.

My goals remain the same: get rid of my debt, save up a one year emergency fund and save for a house. This is a slow process but I will get there!

Happy birthday to me! And happy birthday to all the other July babies!
