Some Days Are Like That

I sold something on eBay  — at a loss.  And that’s not the worst of it.  I didn’t mean to sell it and now I have to replace it.  And some days are just that way.

Distraction.  Moving fast.  Trying to not have excess stuff around my house when I could do something better with the money it would yield. Moving too fast.

And reminded again that not much is “life or death.”  I live with such surplus and excess that this minor annoyance is only that.

Reminds me of Anne Lamott who famously says that some days her prayers consist of, in the morning, “Whatever” and at night, “Oh well!”
