You know those days when you wake up and nothing is going your way? Where life is just crashing down and you cant do anything to stop it. You just have to let it run its course even though that’s one of the hardest things to do. I had one of those days today. Nothing happened, I have no reason to be mad, or upset. But I am. I have no reason to be down and out. But I am. I feel so alone even though I am surrounded by people who love and care for me. I woke up in the morning like any other day. Got the baby up and dressed, we ate breakfast together and hung out for a while before going to my moms. I had a perfect morning with my baby, but yet I felt like everything was imperfect. I went to work at Olive Garden. While I was working, I started to feel so down. I was upset and very frustrated for no reason. I didn’t want to be there. Now guys, this is super embarrassing, but I totally spilled red wine all over someone who was wearing a tan sweater. Red wine. Tan sweater. Light tan sweater. It ruined his sweater and it ruined my day. They were super cool about it and they weren’t even mad at all. That was a blessing. Nothing was going right for me. I burst out in tears and I asked my manager if someone else could take the table and I asked if I could go home. I had a mental breakdown at work and I couldn’t console myself. My boss told me “Kayla, there is two rules to life: 1. Don’t sweat the small stuff 2. Everything is small stuff. ” That really stuck with me. What’s done is done. I cant go back and change what happened. I can however, pay for dry cleaning. I still feel awful about the sweater and the experience they had. Now guys, I’m actually a good server. I was voted the best server in Cheyenne in 2017. I’ve never spilled anything on anyone and that’s saying something because I’ve probably spilled everything imaginable all over myself. Truth is, I’m a very clumsy gal. I messed up bad. But the good thing is, I’m okay. He’s okay. Everyone is okay. Even though I had an awful day and spilled wine someone, I am okay. Even though I messed up I am okay. Even through our bad days, were all going to be okay. In the moment I freaked out and had a mental breakdown, but looking back, its not that big of a deal. It’s not like me spilling wine on him changed his whole life. It just ruined a sweater. Everyone makes mistakes, and everyone has those bad days. But the fact is, you’re okay. We all just have to remember that we’ll be okay, and not to sweat the small stuff.
