All the time.
Delays, change of plans.
I’m learning that how I handle glitches makes all the difference in the world. Feeling sad or mad about glitches sucks the energy out of me. Kills my productivity. Has me overanalyzing and thinking too much.
I got stuck on a train for 7 hours yesterday + missed a pretty fun event that I was amped about attending.
When I find myself in uncontrollable glitch situations, I try to be as mindful as I possibly can be. I think about all of the things I like about the situation. I brainstorm all of the things I’m grateful for in my life. I close my eyes and breathe. I listen to music. I reframe the glitch to be something that was supposed to happen. Sometimes I have whiskey.
Glitches happen and they’re always going to happen. It’s how we handle them that matters.
Well said Gab!
