Today I am grateful for:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
