I hate those days where nothing seems to go right. You try everything to make it better. You listen to some great music, you taunt your neighbors chihuahuas since they actually got leashes for them and can't chase you around anymore, you have a cup of tea, watch your favorite movie, but everything still seems to be going against you. The world just seems to be laughing in your face at every single thing that goes wrong. Those days just really suck, and I am having a major bad one. 

Since I woke up this morning until this very second, not one thing has gone well in my day. Today was supposed to be the day I go to take my permit test. Sweet. That's what I thought at first. So like a normal nervous teenager, I studied all morning until I could answer each practice test question on my Drivers Ed app without even finishing it. The test was going to be a piece of cake. So we get into the car and head on over to the DMV. There we are, father and daughter, driving away! We were doing great until my dad asks, "So where is this place anyway?". At this point I blinked repeatedly and just looked at him. Yesterday, my wonderful father told me he knew where the DMV was. I asked him again today if he knew where it was, and replied with an, "Of course I do!". Apparently he hadn't been there in a while and had forgotten. Fantastic. So we were lost. Really lost. We pulled over, grabbed an incredibly old Thomas Guide, and found the place. We start heading for it and realize we're driving the opposite way so we turn around.  Finally, we arrive ten minutes late so I'm already pretty sure they won't let me take the test anymore, but I'm hopeful and run in anyway. I stand in line, breathless and hair everywhere, hoping I'll still be able to take it. When I get to the front, I shove the paper with my appointment on it towards the guy at the computer and he states to my absolute horror, "First of all you're standing in the wrong line, and secondly you don't have all the materials you need so we'll need to reschedule an appointment for you". 

Deep breathes. Big deep breathes.

If any of you are having the same day I'm having, all we can do is be hopeful that it will get better. Not everyday is going to be like this. Well, hopefully not at least. All you have to do is pray with all your little heart that things will get better and maybe even scream into a pillow. There is always sunshine after the rain, and smiles to come after the tears. Be optimistic! That's the only thing it seems we can do. Don't let all of these little inconveniences get to you. I'm trying incredibly hard to make my day better, and it's actually working. You can do it too. Here's the chorus to a song call This Is The Stuff by Francesca Battistelli. It's so incredibly true. Try listening to the whole song :) Lord, help us deal with the things in life that we feel we can't handle.

This is the stuff, that drives me crazy.
This is the stuff, that's getting to me lately.
In the middle of my little mess, I forget how big I'm blessed. 
This is the stuff, that gets under my skin.
But I've got to trust, You know exactly what you're doing. 
It might not be what I would choose, but this is the stuff You use.

Giggle for me!,
Tabs <3
