Life is like a develop from the negatives!

Thursday, 24 February 2011

I saw the quote 'Life is like a develop from the negatives!' on someone's blog/twitter or some other online forum a few weeks ago. I immediately put it as my blackberry status as it was so fitting for how I was feeling at the time. I actually didn't plan to write about this today...I actually didn't plan to write about anything to be honest, I just hoped it'd just come to me when I signed in...

Before I went to bed this morning (no, that wasn't a typo, it really was this morning) and when I woke up later this morning (after very little sleep), I was still thinking what will my blog be about? What can I possibly write about, being one of the last ladies to blog, that hasn't already been covered. After several sips of my mint tea and a refill I decided on a topic. So, when the AA guy rang my buzzer and while I waited for him to manoeuvre the 12ton truck down a single car driveway trying not to hit the cars parked on either side of the road, I started to type up a draft in my phone. A few minutes later I was interrupted by the AA guys loud voice shouting "Sorry luv, I can't get the truck down the drive. Your looking at up to a 3hr wait for us to get a smaller truck out to you." GREAT! Just what I needed... So as I'm walking back inside I'm saying to myself, universe I know that there's obviously a reason for this...but 3 weeks ago my clutch went and then 2 weeks later I get in the car to find that it won't drive as the front and back wheel have seized, I've waited a week for the appointment at the garage, and all I want to do is get my poor Betty (the car) fixed. Part of me thought I really should have scrapped this car a long time ago, maybe I should just cancel the AA and do it now and save myself any more money/time/inconvenience etc.

So, fast forward an hour and the AA guy's back...the same one with the 12ton truck, but he's got a friend with him this time, an AA guy with a van...the same type of van that couldn't move the car last week... So I take a deep breath and ask what the plan is. They openly admit that they don't know but are willing to try, so I agree as I still have 2hrs wait time for the smaller truck. Mind going 100miles an hour, I switch off and just watch the 2 guys work together on what seemed an impossible task. And to my surprise, 30 minutes later, not only are they hoisting her onto the truck, they have provided a possible diagnosis and eliminated the main problem, by releasing the 2 wheels that were seized. So I start thinking, this was looking like it was going to be a bad day, and in a relatively short space of time it turned around. And it's pretty much like life, granted, it often isn't as quick, easy to solve or pain/stress free. But sometimes things get bad, sometimes a lot of negative things happen, sometimes when we're on the brink of giving up all that's needed is a little positivity/faith/belief to keep on going...and when we come out at the other end and it comes good, we can look back and say it was worth it, I learned and grew!!

So whether it's car trouble, work stress, uni/school pressure, relationship issues or just life in general that's getting you down...just remember that life is like a photograph and we develop from the negatives : )

Stay gifted & highly favoured!

Congrats on your first blog. It's amazing how when we look at things it's easy to just accept the negative that faces us without looking beyond. It's true what you say though, a little positivity can turn the whole thing around.

Look forward to the next one xxx

Thank you for that N, I was having a photograph moment today. It is so true we do develop from the negatives. So thanks for cheering me up.

Can't wait for the next one.

Luv M xxx
