Not According to Schedule
My morning started fast with an early appointment. I anticipated it would only take a certain amount of time, however, not long after arriving, I was informed it would take much longer. UGH! All of a sudden my entire day had to be altered.
I have (what I think) is a good habit of planning out my schedule to make sure I can accomplish what needs to be done in a timely and manageable manner. However, I’ve also come to realize that my idea of how my day should go can be rather inflexible. When appointments, events and calendar items go longer, forcing me to adjust, it causes stress and anxiety. I know intellectually that life is about change and adapting when it doesn’t work the way we plan, which is almost always. However, knowing isn’t the same as accepting and understanding not the same as believing.
So, I took a breath, thankful I brought my laptop for work, and simply let the day unfold without trying to force my will upon it.
