Fortunate events

Date : June 16, 2021

This is a short update, it’s been almost a month since my last post Unfortunate Events, things got really interesting and I am not going to go into extreme detail but remember when I said my AC unit died and the repair guy quoted me a ridiculous amount? Well I found a new company and got a new top of the line AC unit for the total amount of zero dollars and zero cents. Turns out I saw a truck on the street with a phone number, I called to set up a meeting and later found out they needed some design work, so we traded. Now I have I brand new AC unit and they have the design work they were looking for, everybody wins.

The other fortunate events are even weirder, I started getting a lot of work, project after project, I honestly was not prepared for that much, I got contacted locally and from out of state. So I have been busy finishing projects, taking care of my clients and focusing on my family and staying healthy.

Just because we tend to perceive some events as bad, doesn’t mean they are all bad, we can’t see the whole picture all the time, sometimes we just have to be patient and wait to see what the outcome is going to be.

“For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”

-J.R.R. Tolkien

This inexplicable roller coaster of events is still strange to me, my life has had its up and downs but I’ve never had a series of events happen one after the other like this before. First a series of “bad” events that led to a series of “good” events.

If you haven’t read the story of the farmer and his son I suggest you give it a shot, it’s a good short story and provides a lot of perspective in situations like these.
