ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES… from The Daily Driver Project

So Sunday was one of those days…

Wheels and Waves was Sunday at its new location. Because it was at a new location, Fireball asked that we show up at 6 am to go over the logistics of the location.

Cool, I’ll get up a little earlier and head out. Well, that is what I thought…

Saturday night, I could not sleep and I rolled around until 3 am before I fell asleep and I had to be up by 4ish to make it to Malibu by 6 am. I’ve survived on 1 hour of sleep before. But Sunday morning, I rolled over to look at the clock and realized it was 5:55 am… and I’m still in bed! Panic! Panic! Adrenaline filled my body… a cold shower woke me up… and out the door I went.

I showed up at 7 am when the show started and it was fantastic. I really dig the new location, but there is something you have to always remember when the day starts off bad. You have to roll with the punches.

“A bad moment doesn’t mean you have to have a bad day.”

You have to learn to just let that hiccup, that mistake, that whatever that had started the day off bad… go. Turn that frown upside down (I just flashed back to being 4 years old).

Whatever works for you to get past that moment and work on making the rest of your day great. Even if there is another issue, always trying to work towards a better day will just make for a better life.
