As soon as it happened, I knew, and was annoyed. With myself. For doing the one thing I shouldn’t do, and generally avoid doing – biting on that front crown.
But I did, and it broke, and now I have to rearrange my day. The podcast I was going to record will have to be rescheduled, and I won’t be out for dinner tonight. On the other hand, I’ll move some of the jobs I’d scheduled for tomorrow to today, and with a bit of luck I’ll be back on track, or not far off it by Monday, ready to face the world again.
It’s tempting to live your life as if it were a soap opera, and hype every mishap into a dire misfortune, every good thing into a heroic victory.
But it isn’t sensible, and it isn’t necessary. Life is quite interesting enough thank you.
