A couple of weekends ago I broke a tooth. It was nasty. I could feel it with my tongue and half of the tooth was missing. I wasn’t sure if it was the tooth or the filling that was broken, but I knew that something had to be done.
First thing on Monday I called our dentist who was able to fit me in in three days. And during that time, I wondered if I would need a root canal or a crown, how much insurance would cover and how much I would have to pay.
When the dentist came in I told her what had happened, and she told me to open wide. As she examined the damage she exclaimed “that little thing?” And I said “No,
there’s a massive part of my tooth missing.”
The reality is that a massive part of the tooth wasn’t missing, I had simply chipped the tooth, she smoothed it out, touched it up and my portion of the bill was twenty bucks.
I spent four days, worrying about something that I couldn’t do anything about and ultimately never happened, time that I’ll never get back.
But, you probably never worry and fret only to discover what you thought was major was simply minor. Or do you?
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible
