Today's the sort of day when I write up my list of what I'd like to do ... and <em>then</em> start remembering all of the extra things that mean I'll have less time and attention than I first thought. And <em>then</em> start hearing about the extra, unexpected things that also need to fit in.
I get frustrated with having my plans pulled out from under me. I always feel better if I have an idea ahead of time about what I need to do and what I need to think about. I'm reminding myself that all of my forgotten and unexpected interruptions are good things -- some of the best things. I get to have extra time with my nephew, sharing a Thanksgiving event at his preschool. I get to work with the counselor who has done so much to help me learn about myself and grow past hard sticking points. I get to "play" with my taiji class this evening, working on hard choreography that is finally, finally starting to click. Interruptions of the best sort.
I'm tempted sometimes to call a day like this a mess. The truth is, today is full of blessings. I'm going to step out and enjoy them.
