Nothing comes without a price

Man, what a looooong ass day today’s been.

I have to admit, I slept pretty well, all things considered, until about 3am in the morning

….then I woke up and started thinking about anything else that might have been in my purse that got stolen…..Oh yeah, a library book, “Tales from a Yoga Studio”….kind of ironic, don’t you think?  I had taken it with me to work, in case we were slow (I was the “late” person on Wednesday).

So much time spent on the phone

with credit card companies, my bank, my insurance agent, faxing documents to the police department, the glass repair company, yada, yada, yada….

I even wore my

t-shirt to work today….to remind myself that just because

that there are still more good people than bad.  I really want to believe that!

So, if you’ve ever read about “law of attraction” it says that you attract what you vibrate (think about)….it’s an energy thing…, last night, of course I’m thinking about criminals and bad people and today at work, I swear, some of my patients were ex-cons or meth heads…..seriously!  I’m not saying they were bad people….they were actually quite nice, but again, kind of ironic.

I’ve had several comments on my last blog post and some private e-mails as well…..thanks for everything….really!

As I was making phone calls today, I was trying to make sense out of what happened…..why would someone want to do this to ME?  Then again, why NOT me?

Sometimes we see people and think we want what they have, but would we be willing to give up what they may have given up to have what they have?

You see Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and you see the homes and the trips and the kids, but would you be willing to give up so much of your privacy to have that life?

You see Jennifer Aniston and her rockin’ bod, but do you want to pass up those margaritas with your friends? Be longing for a husband and a baby? (or at least that’s what I read)

I don’t know….

I guess someone saw me getting out of my Chrysler 300 and going into a yoga studio…..what went through their mind? 

She’s got plenty of money, she won’t miss it.

What they didn’t see was the girl who worked part time and went through nuclear medicine school full time and lived on Ramen noodles for a year while she was 1000 miles from home

the girl who bought her yoga classes with a Groupon,

the girl who is still driving the same car that she bought in August of 2004.

Nothing comes without a price……


  1. Tammy, I'm so sorry about this bad thing that happened to you but at least you still have your life. For that I'm grateful. I hope that they didn't get to use your ID or credit cards and I hope that you didn't carry too much cash in your purse. What a nightmare. I don't blame you for being upset. I would be too.

    I actually have read the Law of Attraction and have it in my library. I believe that we attract what we vibrate but there are some people who would steal from their own mother.

    Funny that we have the same type of cars. This week I just gave my son my Chrysler 300M car and bought myself a Dodge Caravan and I love it because I'm higher off the ground and can see so much better on the road. The chrysler drives smooth and is more luxurious but I still felt right at home when I sat in that Dodge Caravan.

    Hope that you can sleep well tonight. JB

  2. Tammy, I am so sorry to hear of your woes.
    Hope everything get straightened out. All the frustrations all due to someone else's lack of regard for others.
    Be safe.

  3. I love that you pointed out what you went thru to get what you've got! That's the part that the 'wanna be's' never think about ~ that you actually worked and struggled to be where you are! And they will never figure it out!
