Haven’t had to embrace letting go of plans for a few weeks, so I spent from 6 til 7 this morning feeling frustrated and fighting with gravity. Then I remembered how I used to feel most of the time, and was suddenly glad for the reminder that there’s a bigger perspective associated with my daily workload. It’s also useful (if painful) to be reminded that even when I think I’m indispensable, life can easily rejig around my ear when necessary. So I missed a new patient and rescheduled a few appointments. So what? I’m still able to turn up most days, and do most of the things I need to most of the time. Take that, ear.
