Today I got into a fender bender. As best as I can recollect, I was sitting in traffic, bumper-to-bumper, and I lost consciousness/fell asleep and next thing I know my knees slam against the counter in my car and I rear-end the car in front.
I was up this morning to go to an ankle and foot clinic to get my injuries checked out on my feet from basketball related injuries in the past. I wasn’t overly tired, and was confused as to why I got into the car accident. No use mulling over the past, just have to be more aware next time.
I was late for the appointment but it was ok, got some x-rays done, and they told me things I already knew. Then the medication place called me, because I got a prescription for this custom cream, and it was $200 because my insurance doesn’t cover it; so basically I did not get the cream because it was $200 and immediately I think…”great…didn’t have to go and wouldn’t have been in a car accident.”
But then that’s life. Can’t predict what’s going to happen. Can’t sit there and complain and about what already happened. Just got to keep praising God and living life.
Strangely enough, this is the 6th accident I have been a part of.
First one was major and my fault (Toyota Camry).
- Category: Reckless, took a risk on a yellow light while turning left.
Second one was minor and another rear-end by me (Toyota Rav4).
- Category: Literally, day after I crashed the Camry was going to school and was impatient, not trying to let someone in.
Third was someone else’s fault but I let them go (Honda Element).
- Category: N/A.
Fourth was my fault and another rear-end (Honda Element).
- Category: Eating in the car and dropped something…yea I know.
Fifth was someone else’s fault but I let them go too (Honda Element).
- Category: N/A.
Sixth was today and another rear-end (Honda Element).
- Category: Lack of awareness, tired.
Either my Element has a way of getting into accidents, or it’s really sturdy and thus still driveable after ten years. But praise God the lady was nice and we are both fine.
Tough days are when we oughT to praise God even more, it’s all about perspective.
