272 // Dragging Myself

Today I am grateful for:

  1. Mistakes that aren’t mine. I hate to admit this, but whenever I hear of someone’s error or oversight, my first reaction—after an initial flash of secondhand embarrassment—is a sweet relief that it was them and not me who is the focus of negative attention and disappointment. I revel in not being the worst.
  2. The end of Monday. The work week is well under way now and sometimes the start can be so jarring and rough on the senses that the middle brings a relief simply by not being the beginning. Tuesday will be smoother, I just know it.
  3. Impromptu naps. It never ends up well, but in the moment I always get the most restorative rest when I nod off to sleep accidentally and at the worst possible time.
