I find I am often derailed in my daily undertakings by the unplanned and unexpected.
Yesterday it was a rock through a sliding glass door. Today it was an unsatisfactory visit to one of the spouse’s physicians & later a fall due to my bad ankle.
That is not to say the days were completely lost. It did take an inordinate amount of energy to move back on task and accomplish even minor tasks.
I believe this errant energy waste is due to trying to force equanimity upon myself rather than accepting, experiencing, and releasing the negative emotion generated by the unexpected event.
There’s always tomorrow.
