Rainy Reality Check

A few weeks ago on a rainy afternoon, I was walking home after having lunch with a girlfriend. I was wearing my super cute rain boots. I was congratulating myself for remembering to put my umbrella in my bag. I was feeling very prepared and very "city chic."

As I chatted on the phone with my boss about an upcoming assignment, I celebrated having the perfect job. (and the perfect life in the perfect city etc. etc. etc.)

The moment felt like the opening sequence of a movie. I could hear the peppy soundtrack playing in the background. My life was in technicolor.

I'm not going to lie, I was feeling perfectly full of myself.

And then, as if on cue, this happened.

Talk about the perfect way of snapping me back to reality! 

It was perfectly timed and desperately needed to remind me that life is not a movie.

Have you survived a slightly embarrassing reality check lately?
