Some days the best of me is not as good as other days. Today is one of those days. Nothing particularly bad happened. No major catastrophe occurred; there are no amends to be made. I just wasn’t my best today. It just didn’t flow, things weren’t clicking, everything seemed a little more challenging to process.
Days like today happen. They.just.do. There were times in the recent past when this would have been an excuse to spiral into self-pity, blame, rationalization, and shame. Not today. I will let it in and accept it. I turn to an oldie but goodie, and I remember that today is a good day as long as I do not drink. If for no other reason than that today was a good day, and as for the rest – this too shall pass.
