I was late for something today – which hasn’t happened to me in a long time. I got hot and flustered and cross, and for a while wanted to shout at the people who organised the training session, for their poor directions.
But actually, as calm returned, I realised it was all my fault. I allowed guilt about leaving colleagues to delay me at work, and didn’t allow myself “time for getting lost”. The feeling as calm returned was good, as that’s how things usually are for me (more or less) – but lesson learned. Time for getting lost is important.
