I Almost Forgot What Day It Was

Some things have such a devastating impact on your life you think you’ll never forget the date. That was the case with June 10th.

Long time readers might remember that June 10th, 2016 isn’t DDay. Rather it’s the day CF texted me to let me know he had lost his job, sending me into a free fall of financial insecurity.

This year I completely forgot the date until the day was almost over. I was reading old blog posts and read last year’s post about June 10th when it hit me that today was June 10th. It was 10:45 at night.

I work at a bank. I am aware of the date all the time. Significant dates usually ping my brain, no matter how much I may try to stop them.

Not this year. If I hadn’t been re-reading old posts the day probably would have passed by unnoticed.

That’s a good thing.

  1. It really IS a good thing. Means the mental torment that keeps track of shit things is ebbing. I had a similar experience this year. 19 years ago a truck speeding at 75 mph blew off a stop sign on a country road and hit my car. I thought I had walked away with a miracle, minor scrapes despite major bruising due to impact with steering wheel, I’m 5’ even so my seat is close so I can reach pedals. Guess what? One minute before impact was the last time I experienced a normal life without pain every damn second of existence. I was 34 years old. I had to throw out every plan, schedule, routine, hope and dream and make a new one for the new life I had to live. Most importantly I had to stop thinking of how it was before so I could be happy where I’m at, because that was the worst of all.
    This was the first February 9th that came and went without an alert from the internal clock. You know what? LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL. Even this one!
    So so happy for you, SweetSam!XO


    1. I’m so sorry to hear about your auto accident! I know it was a long time ago but wow- I can’t imagine living every day in pain.

      You’ve given me a new way of looking at things. I may write a post about it. Of course, I’m going to have to be able to access my WordPress site and currently I cannot do that. I can read. I can reply. But I can’t write, edit, or follow any other blogs if I’m on the computer. My phone seems to be fine but I hate trying to respond to people, or write a blog on my phone.

      That is definitely food for thought. Stop thinking about how things used to be and start being happy where you are now. Thank you.
