Perfect Moment Monday: auto-realization

Last week I went on a road trip and had a bit of car trouble.  It turned out not to be anything major, and nothing was harmed except my schedule (and my sleep), but there was a bit of stress for a while when I didn’t know if it was going to turn out to be something major (i.e. expensive and time consuming).

It wasn’t until the day after I got back home (much later in the night than I had originally intended), than the thought struck me:  not once during all of the car-drama did I have the thought, “Boy I wish X were here.”  Not once.  At no point did I even feel like something was going to happen and I wouldn’t be able to handle it.  The biggest stress was inconvenience and expense.  Even if I had broken down by the side of the road, I know I could have handled it.  During this car “crisis” I had no moment of wanting him around to rescue me*, I was just fine with the help that came my way on my own.

And that was perfect.

*In fact, if he had been there, things would likely have been much more stressful, as I would have been not only having to worry about the car, but his moods as well.

  13. It’s a real turning point when you realize you CAN do things without a man’s help. I had a similar experience years ago when I finally broke up with my very manipulative first serious boyfriend and subsequently installed my own blinds. 🙂
