Last week I got in my Corolla, and it wouldn’t start. It’s not quite three years old. I had to have it towed to the dealer, and the next morning the dealer was able to start it, and they couldn’t find the issue. But now I don’t trust my car. I immediately upgraded my roadside assistance plan.
Last month, Air Canada lost my luggage for four days, and now I don’t trust Air Canada. On my next trip, I will only be taking a carry-on.
Now to be fair, I’ve driven Toyotas since 1985, and this was the first time I had one that wouldn’t start. And I’ve been flying Air Canada since 1978, and this was only the second time my bags were delayed. But still!
I’m sure that in time when I get in my car, I will once again expect it to start—every time. And there will come a time when I will once again check my bags with Air Canada and expect to receive them at my destination.
There are times when we are disappointed by someone we love, and in the same way, our trust can be restored. But often, it takes time, and they will need to prove themselves trustworthy.
Have a great week, and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
