This morning I woke up with a sore throat and stomach ache that only intensified as I began to get ready for my morning workout. Ten minutes later I was back in bed with the light out, definitely not where I planned to be at that hour and definitely missing my run.
When I finally woke up for good two hours later, I gathered up my tax forms and scooted out the door to go meet with a potential tax accountant. We went over my financial history and talked about plans for the future, and though my team was very kind and helpful, when I got to my car, I couldn’t help reflecting on the events in my life that led me to the numbers on my financial report. Tears naturally followed. Just as I missed my run this morning, I felt that I had missed out on opportunities that would have led me to a stable idea of my future. This is not where I planned to be at this stage in my life.
