Merkin partner taps until everyone had run

Someone hit the car of my partner, Rose, as it was parked and there is a good chance it is totaled. She is going through the long process of insurance and is frustrated that this sort of thing happened to her. She is extremely frustrated with the seemingly bad luck of getting her car smashed. We talked about the seemingly random events that happen to us in life. How do you process them? Do you see them as fate, chaos, karma, or something else entirely?

Some shared that it was pure chaos and that what matters is personal responsibility and making sure you take the best precautions you can. Some share that there is a why and reason, but we aren’t big enough to see it right now. Some also shared the event doesn’t matter, but it is how we handle the lessons we learn from the event that matters.

There seemed to be a general theme that uncertainty in the world is constant, focusing on personal responsibility, personal reflection, and understanding there are bigger forces than ourselves at play in the world helped everyone stay even-keeled in the events life throws at us.

All in all, couldn’t think of a better way to spend my Monday morning.
