It’s 2:56pm and my kids will all begin to blow in from school in 37 minutes.
And I’ve just sat down for the first time today after a day of changed plans, unexpected soccer shenanigans, doggy daycare, long phone calls and nothing that I had on my to do list for today. Including this post.
Some days are just like that. Great plans and intentions…diversions and distractions instead. Not bad. Just different than I had propped my day up to play out.
So I take a deep breath, some coffee and a biscotti (…mmmm) and decide that today I won’t let myself be hustled by stress. Breathing in the reminder that this day will come and go and I get to choose my response to the unexpected. Knowing that I have trouble so often in choosing this one thing well, but today I got it, so I’m headed out from behind this screen to my front porch.
