It’s hard to even write this.
Today was one of those days where I piled on so much work and expectations for myself that I was practically asking for trouble. First, a pipe burst and the water had to be shut off for a few hours then my internet crashed. I realized I was behind schedule on a project and to top it off I was reminded of a dentist appointment the next day. My over-dramatic self was sure the world was crumbling down and I was feeling anxious about every little thing.
As I was deciding between screaming and climbing into bed for a nap, I started laughing.
Then I went into the kitchen got out some flour, sugar and eggs, etc. and began baking a cake.
By the time this was done I had to run to the closest store for a bathroom break and proceeded to buy myself an ice cream. I know I tend to be a negative person but today I just dropped my expectations and took on the day, letting the negativity roll off my shoulders with a shrug.
In the evening, we tempted friends over with cake and ended up playing board games (the water was also back on!). A day that had started out causing me so much anxiety ended in laughter.
Lesson Learned: Roll with the punches.
