Bad Day… Good Day

February 9th, 2007 → Leave a comment

So, I had a really challenging day. And I have to wonder if it is like they say in “The Secret” that my thoughts manifested the bad things that happened today. So what I’m going to do is for every thing bad that happened today, I am going to list something I am grateful for. Because somehow, it’s gratitude that will allign us to what we want.

Bad Day:
I got locked out of apartment.

But what I’m grateful for:
I keep a hide-a-key by my car.

Bad Day:
When I got down there I noticed the doors of my car were unlocked and ajar.

But what I’m grateful for:
Is my car was still there.

Bad Day:
I looked into my car and my stereo was ripped out.

But what I’m grateful for:
I got a text message at that exact moment saying that I was going to be booked for this gig in Chicago.

Bad Day:
The thieves smashed my car window to unlock my car doors.

But what I’m grateful for:
They didn’t smash the driver side window, so I would actually still be able to drive to lunch with my friends.

Bad Day:
I switched to Geico insurance and they don’t cover smashed glass.

But what I’m grateful for:
My car window got smashed in four years ago and I already knew a cheap place to get it fixed. I was able to make a call and they will actually come to me tomorrow to fix it.

Bad Day:
My friend is a booking person who I thought would know someone who could help me with all this work. He told me he knew nobody. He also said that he worked with “well heeled” theaters and wasn’t really familiar with the market I work in. I know he didn’t mean to make me feel bad, but his comment made me feel like I only play crap venues or something since I play so much in colleges.

But what I’m grateful for:
I heard back from another “crap venue” school interested in me. I also heard out of nowhere from my old UCLA professor who I totally idolized in college and who wanted me to speak in his class for his GRAD STUDENTS! “Crap venues”? Nah, well heeled enough for me.

Bad Day:
No work really got done today because of the car crap.

But what I’m grateful for:
I got a lot of time to appreciate that I’m here.
