Top Five Most Disappointing Moments of my Life

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

I shared last Sunday with the youth group at Harvester Student Ministries
and I thought I would share it with you.

These are my top five most disappointing moments of my life….

5) I was six and still believed in Santa
The conversation went something like this:
“Tell them Mrs. Jones, Santa Claus is real”
I fought with everything I knew to convince my friends
that Santa was in fact real, and I knew that Mrs. Jones
would back me on this one.
Unfortunately, I was wrong that day and have never been the same.
Santa is not real kids.

4) My Baseball Career
I remember driving home with my Dad when I was 14 after a game
and realized at that moment that I was not going to make it to the
majors. Ever kids dream has been crashed like this before.
But to be honest it was one of the greatest things to happen to me,
I would not be doing what I am doing today if not for this sad moment
of truth and realization.
It still hurts though.

3) The Goodwill
Believe it or not, but this was a sad day when I realized that
the goodwill has raised their prices so much I can barely afford to shop
there. I mean it is the goodwill, a place not to make money but to give
others old clothes. Nothing like paying 7 bucks for a stained t-shirts.
For that reason, SteveJaguarthrift exist. Check it out.

2) Still single (here’s why)
As all my friends get married or have girlfriends, I still live in my parents basement.
Sometimes I do not mind being single, it saves me a lot of money and provides me a lot
of freedom, but I would throw all that away if I could find “the one.”
Hopefully I can take this off my list and make this an ideal summer.

1) The split
This is my number one most disappointing moment of my life.
Jon and Kate plus 8 are struggling and the show could no longer go on.
I love this show, I love the kids, and I love Jon and Kate’s dynamics.
I know there are some haters out there who think Kate is the devil,
but I really don’t mind her.
I just figured that we would get to see these kids grow up
and everything would be great.
But after watching the new episode on Monday,
I have realized that this might not happen.
I mean it was painful watching them struggle through
even being around each other.
I really don’t know if I will be able to watch the show anymore
if every episode is like the one I saw Monday. Very sad.

There it is, my top five most disappointing moments of my life.
Don’t like my list, want to add something to it, maybe you want to
share one of your moments.
Leave a comment and let us see your disappointing moments.
