A Blessing In Disguise?

You know that feeling you get when you’ve planned to do something with your friends, whether it may be watching a movie, hanging out, going to each other’s house, or whatever it may be, it would be a plan with friends, and your PARENTS ruin it by not allowing you in the last minute, or by making some family plan and forcing you to go instead? Yeah yeah, THAT feeling, I know what you’re thinking. THAT feeling right there, its a mixture of well, anger, annoyance and irritation. Something similar happened with me, not to long ago.
I was supposed to be at a football match with my friends, and following the match, we would go to a cafe to hang out. We’d planned this for quite a while now, and I was looking forward to it. When the day finally came, well, you can guess now cant you? I was forced to go to this lame-ass park with family instead. Now dont get me wrong, I wouldn’t mind if cousins my age were coming, but NOOOO. You know who came? My old aunts and uncles, the REALLY old ones, and then cousins who were not more than eight or nine years old. Now bear in mind, I’m almost seventeen, what on earth would I DO? I got really annoyed, complained a lot, but I was STILL forced to go, I still dont understand why I had to.
Anyway, I became really negative about everything during the trip, I kept saying, oh this sucks, oh that sucks. Obviously, because I was so angry. I was SUPPOSED to be out with my friends. When we finally got to the stupid park, I realized it was quite rushed and full. GREAT. I would LOVE a park full of random people and annoying kids around me. But, I didn’t see how beautiful the park itself was, and how huge it was, I could go on exploring myself, with my headphones on, to escape from the world. So I went for a walk, the weather was nice too, so my bad mood wore off, and I started to notice spots on the park where I could lie down and relax, after so much fatigue due to stupid school. I found a high point, sort of a hill, where I lied down on soft grass, and gazed at the sky thinking about stuff, relaxed. The smell of the trees, flowers, and basically the fresh air made me want to close my eyes, and smile. Surprisingly, I had a good time… I didnt know I would, I actually counted on having a really bad time, but I didnt. I actually enjoyed relaxing in the outdoors in nature.
So, the catch is, never be SO negative about something I guess, you never know, there may be a blessing in disguise, waiting for you.
