The Universe

I just got home from work. It's 10:43, I had the day from hell. I mean, seriously I can't even begin to describe how bad today was - so I won't. Anyhow, on the way home:
  • on a smelly (who eats hoagies on THE TRAIN???!!!)
  • loud (when your on the phone, really you don't have to SCREAM)
  • crowded (lady next to me was practically laying on my shoulder, snoring in my ear)

Train....I got the following email.

"Oh yeah, Brandi, I forgot to tell you...You get as many "do-overs" as you like. Of course, you never know you're living a "do-over" until it's over.
There are lots of reasons for wanting a "do-over." Most of all, people want another chance to do things they were afraid to do the first time, and to say things they were afraid to say. Oddly enough, it's not their mistakes they want to rework, but their "unused" minutes.
Yeah, pretty nifty, but you should know that it isn't any easier the next time, and because no two ever go exactly the same, the gifts, opportunities, and loves of one, never appear the same way again. Never.
So all in all, it's better to live as if there are no "do-overs," so that you won't need one. But I thought I'd share this with you anyway, to work in the bits about fear, mistakes, and how precious today's opportunities really and truly are.

Crafty as a fox, The Universe"

Instant better mood. I don't know how I came across this website, basically if you sign up
"the universe" sends you random email messages everyday - sort of a words of wisdom if you will. Pretty clever that universe wouldn't ya say??
