I slept well last night and woke up feeling refreshed this morning. Thankfully, today was my day off, so I was able to sleep in some and then once I got up I grabbed a soda and settled on the couch to play a little Red Dead Redemption 2. After an hour or so, I then got productive and knocked out a bunch of chores around the house and made a large batch of chili. While that was cooking, I played a little more Red Dead Redemption 2 and kicked back.
Things were going pretty great until I made a stupid mistake of checking the news. For those first few hours, all my thoughts and fears were at rest and I was at peace. Then, just one glance at my phone, ruined all of that. Why did I do that?
I’ve still got a good portion of the evening to go and I’m hoping I can get back to my little place of peacefulness. What will be, will be and none of it is in my control right now.
