Tomorrow I have a big event at work…an event I’m in charge of coordinating. I spent all day looking at my to-do list, crossing things off, adding things, and crossing things off again. I was determined to take a 2 hour respite from thinking about tomorrow and attend a basketball game. I double-checked some things and then headed to the basketball arena with approximately 15 minutes before tipoff. A few vibrations of my phone reminded me during the game that I couldn’t completely remove myself from work. Thanks to modern technology, I answered a few e-mails while glancing up at the action. I was hoping to end the day on a good, lighthearted note…with a win. Did we want badly enough to put a blemish on the record of a so-far unbeaten team? Apparently not as we simply just didn’t take care of the little things.
After the game, I stopped back at work shortly. While running another errand before heading home, I was flipping stations on the radio trying to slow the wheels down in my head. I paused on a soft rock/pop station just in time to hear the notes of a song that’s become one of my favorites “The Time of My Life” by David Cook. I smiled and turned up the radio and sang along as if I didn’t have a care in the world. I love how music can serve as a nice distratction.
I have no idea how tomorrow will turn out….I’m just going to show up and hope for the best.
