What a warm and blissful morning it is, and as I was walking and listening to #wernererhard (go listen if you haven't), I set down my coffee thermo at the train stop and pull out my wallet to get through when I realize that I have only one transit card, which I was positive was not the one with a balance on it. I was right. This required me to walk about 5 minutes to the other side to put money on it. Complete. Great. I begin walking down be stairs when I realize I don't have my thermo. I stop. The tvs aren't working to tell me how long I have for the next train. Will I have time? Ok, stop, what's important? Can you communicate that you're running late to the person who is picking you up? Yes.
Remember how I said it was a five minute walk? So I begin running, run up the stairs, and there it is. The thermo. Sitting where I placed it. I hustle down the stairs to see my train coming. Again, will I make it? Should I even try? YESSSSSS, try, I hear. So I continue running and the captain of the train (haha) sees me and waits. I make it on the train, and I'm still on time with where I'm headed. So, even when it looks like you might not make it or it doesn't seem possible, go for it anyway. Besides someone telling me to use heart paper to print on to have more fun in my life (haha) this is the funnest thing that happened today so far. This is what I'm creating for this day, that it's fun and playful and light!
The thing I really don't want to share is that I still drank the coffee so I share it so I can be freed up. Oh well.
