Day 32 year 32 in the #40yrsin40daysofmelanie#Saga . So when I say life has a way of kicking my a*$ this first pic shows it all but is actually taken after the 2nd pic. So the year is #2010 . I had decided that I needed to make a change in my life. I began the phrase #YaGirlCanGetHerselfInSomeIsh ... I say this because this 2nd pic was taken Feb 2010 and I toasted to starting over. EXACTLY 12 days later the 3rd pic happened, my car caught on fire while trying to drive from Houston to Corpus Christie, TX. I was devastated. I had my most precious items. My #Crystals , jewelry and every stitch of important clothing I kept with me along with a special #Painting of #Okinawa . (There was a special rule about this painting.)
My converter went out. A woman in a nurse's uniform ran up to my car in a grocery story and said your catalytic converter is going up in flames call 911 and get away. I literally looked at her, walked around the car, looked where she looked and thought I don't see it. This Queen ran up to me again with a fire extinguisher said "Your car is going up in flames!" before she sprayed the extenquisher and it ran out and ran back away.
I looked again and suddenly saw an orange glow and was like "Holy Shit my car is burning!" I proceeded to drag as much as I could out to (wait for it) save the #Art and crystals. At this time my crystals were my babies but by the time the fire spread I was being pulled away and only saved my Art. Everything else burned.... I still dream of that night 9 yrs ago.
After that, pic #3 I get my PT cruiser "Midnight" in May of 2010. Yes I named my car so what....
I had to start my life over completely... Life said you screwed up so much you must learn... Well did I learn... the 4th pic is me starting again learning to move with Karma's punches in August, I tried to start over. Work out my marriage work out my mistakes... That wasn't what life had in store.
Karma has a way of coming back and teaching you the lesson you need to learn. Sometimes it is good, sometimes it is bad. And some times it is just a freaking pain in the arse.... You have to keep moving or growing... Only choice you have in life is to grow..... Don't give up!
This is my father's home town, Imari. very famous town for porcelain. porcelain techniques around here influenced Europe in 17the century including Meißen in Germany. this is just an ordinary bridge but it is decorated uniquely like this. you will be welcomed by this drunken guy. i wish there was some nice red wine to get tipsy with him!
