Wisdom From the Garbage Man

Posted: November 10, 2011 in Uncategorized

I was on the road again today.

Up at 4:45 to the sound and smell of the coffee pot

march 27 002

I briefly considered my options, reset my alarm… and laid there…. Barely awake.

Alas, I got up, brushed my teeth, got dressed, grabbed my coffee and my preworkout and hit the road.

Thankfully the gym was open, I busted out a chest workout, some abs (must get better at doing this!!!) and 30 minutes of cardio.

Shower and plenty of time to walk home, drop my gym bag, pick up a real girl purse, my work stuff, lunch bag and hop on my bus to go grab the work truck.

I stopped at a super convenient Irving gas station where I’ve become a frequent customer for my large vanilla hazelnut coffee and headed towards the highway.

(note: My love for this cheap flavored gas station coffee is sad, pathetic and beyond forever)

On the access road to the highway I pass a Fero garbage truck/cleaning company. This is a company I pass frequently and for some reason I always read and notice their signs. Today there was a new one… with a message that oddly stuck with me

Life may not always be tied with a bow, but each day is still a gift

With everything that has happened in the past few months that is something I firmly believe. It hasn’t been easy, unemployment, depleted savings, moving twice, stress, blah blah blah.

What about the good? Family? Friends? A new job? New challenges?

Nothing is perfect in life, but it’s still my life and it’s pretty damn good if I do say so myself.

What are you thankful for today?

    What a lovely post! You can find wisdom in the most unusual of places. Thank you for posting this!

  2. I am thankful for McDonalds having free coffee all week. It made my mornings much more bearable.

    If you’re up that early in the morn, what time do you go to bed? (You must be getting enough sleep, ’cause you’re photogenic and sans bags under the eyes!)
