Being Present

having a real bad day small

Friday was one of “those” days.  I left the condo with just enough time to get to my physical therapy appointment.  When I got down to my car, I discovered my keys were not in my purse where they always are.  I came back upstairs and searched frantically for what seemed like 10 minutes, almost called to cancel my appointment, and finally found them in yesterday’s jacket pocket. 

On the way to therapy I got distracted and nearly missed my exit, crossing two lanes of traffic so I’d be on time.  [Note to self: You said bad words to a driver who did that exact thing in front of you just last week. Learn some compassion!]  Therapy was moderately difficult and ended just as Friday rush hour was getting into full swing.  It took me 1 hour and 20 minutes to drive the 18 miles back home.

As I sat down at my desk to write today, I went through some of the files in my blog folder and the title of this file stood out to me, “Morning Thoughts.”  I thought it might be one of the files I use to do a mind dump in the morning, to clear out all the busy-ness of my mind and let it settle into focus for writing a blog.  When I opened the file this is what I found.

Yesterday I made a silly comment on Facebook about my morning.  It was not accompanied by a picture, or a famous quote, or anything to make it stand out.  Almost immediately, there were 'likes' and comments from friends.  And throughout the day, the number of friends who noticed the comment kept growing.
