In other words – if my air conditioner was going to break, this was the best possible time for it to happen
Call me an eternal optimist, but I love to look on the bright side of any situation. A long time ago I was a very dour and emo type of person. To me the glass was always half empty, never half full. Eventually I just got tired of being angry and sad all the time, and decided to make a change. I started doing yoga, meditating, and smoking a lot of pot. I made a concerted effort to let go of stress and worry and just enjoy the moment. Currently I am going through some issues at home, but I continue to cast things in a positive light. When my HVAC system died, I knew that I didn’t have enough money to fix it. I didn’t even have enough cash on hand to pay an HVAC expert to tell me what the problem was. I could have gotten depressed, but instead I realized that this was the only time of the entire year when I could survive a few weeks without air conditioning. I live in the deep south, where we basically run our A/C systems 9 to 11 months a year. My A/C happened to break right in that sweet spot where the temps were nice and the humidity was low. In other words – if my air conditioner was going to break, this was the best possible time for it to happen. Now I have a few weeks to save up a little money, which hopefully will be enough to cover the HVAC repair costs so I can have it back before the muggy summer arrives.
