Recently I was talking with an acquaintance who was bragging about how little sleep she gets. "Generally I get about 4 hours a night,' she bragged, 'but that's all I need. After all I'm just too busy to spend time sleeping."
Uhmmmm....what? Silly me, and here I thought sleep was one of those basic necessities like food, water, and shelter...
In the interest of full disclosure: At a particular point in my life, which I hope never to return to, I would have scoffed at her four hours and boasted that four hours was a luxury I didn't indulge in much...If only my younger self knew then what I know now....But I digress...
How many times in your day do you get caught up in the mundane details of "your story"?
Coming home from work today, I pulled into the driveway of my building...only to have to quickly apply the breaks because the car in front of me had done the same. Ahead of us a tow truck had parked itself in the middle of the drive so that no one could go around it, despite the driveway being a very generous two lanes. The car in front of me took the last space in visitor parking to try to make space for the cars piled up behind me.
I could feel my frustration starting to grow. My knee was stiff from sitting, I was tired, hungry, and mere steps away from my apartment. However short of abandoning my car in the driveway, there was no way I could simply go home as I so desperately wanted to do at that point.
