It Could Have Been Worse

I could have splattered my second change of clothes with toothpaste.
I could have slipped in a puddle of water in the break room.
I could have forgotten about my emergency granola bar in my purse.
I could have had a hole in more than just my tights.

I did squirt hand soap on my first outfit, just as I was running out to work.
I did almost fall on the sidewalk, tripping for no reason other than that's the way I do things.
I did forget to eat breakfast and by mid morning was starving.
I did wear the exact same color sweater as a co-worker, so we were almost identical (she had a scarf and I did not).

But, it could have been much worse.  When I think of all the 'could haves' I find myself thinking I came out of the day pretty well.  It's days like these that I'm so glad my husband is a Monty Python fan.....

There is no way I can think the words 'always look on the bright side' without smiling and wanting to whistle!
