I wanted to bring ice tea to work to counteract the Diet Coke cravings. Couldn’t find the pitcher to make some.
I wanted to meditate to calm my mind for work. My brain was so frazzled from above that I only got in 9 minutes and 34 seconds before I hollered “Basta.” And quit for the morning.
I had a list of great ‘to do’ things that really, really needed to be done. I took a nap instead. When I woke up, it was too late to reach needed East Coast offices.
On the other hand:
The confusion I was feeling helped someone else clarify their own storm clouds.
The refrigerator still held chilled water that kept the Demon DC at bay.
I cleaned the fish tank, trimmed the plants and gave them a fishy water drink.
I remembered to print forms just-in-time, but who’s counting.
I added another 5+ minutes of meditation at the end of the day, making an almost 15 total.
Maybe it’s OK to be a little imperfect.
