It has been an interesting week to say the least. A couple of days ago I posted on Facebook that I choose Happy and it really stuck with me. I really focus on choosing to be happy even when life throw random curve balls at you.
This week I had a random curve ball thrown at me. I was flossing my teeth and somehow managed to break off a crown on a back tooth. Seriously I didn’t even think that was possibly but it is. I was doing what you are supposed to be doing..flossing and brushing your teeth and I managed to knock off a crown. And no I wasn’t going super ninja crazy on my gums it just happened.
I went into the dentist on Tuesday morning hoping for the best but the pit of my stomach knew that the tooth would have to be pulled. John kept reminding me to focus on the positive and hope that the dentist could fix it but somehow I just knew. Sadly I was right and lost the bet with John. So Tuesday morning bright and early at 7am the dentist pulled my tooth. I was dosed up on pain meds and headed home to relax for a few days.
As I was getting ready to check out of the dentist office the receptionist mentioned she couldn’t believe what a good mood I was in for just having my tooth pulled. I sort of smiled, as much as you can when half your face is numb and told her why not be happy. It wasn’t her fault that dental floss somehow knocked my tooth out. Why would I be grumpy to her. She said that most people are grumpy and not very friendly to her.
I was reminded again that I choose happy and it makes life so much nicer. Sure my face was half numb, I had a giant ice pack against my face and was praying that the numbness would last 20+ hours….which sadly it didn’t but that still isn’t a reason to be grumpy.
As I look forward at our schedule and the craziness we are about to dive into I keep reminding myself to choose happy. To put good out there and focus on being the best that I can be in the each situation.
The same day I had my tooth pulled I spent a few hours taking senior pictures for a relative of John’s. I was dosed up on pain meds and didn’t feel good but made it happen and I am so glad I did. Seeing her joy and happiness with the photos made it all worth it.
Tomorrow I have an adventure to share with everyone. An adventure I had no plans on taking but dang am I happy that I did it!
