Learning 28: Cutting of the Slack
Called my mom today. Even though she's in a lot of pain and frustrated by her fractured clavicle, she listened to my list of woes with typical Momful sympathy, wisdom and selflessness. "I just don't know how I can get stuff done," I kvetched. "And I'm going out with friends today and I shouldn't be. I have no business having fun when I have this much to do. I'm freaking out."
"It's important to cut yourself some slack," said Mom. So that's what I learned today, to cut myself some slack, even when I'm being a slacker. As usual, Mom's words ring with truth. I'm feeling pretty happy with how my day went. Follow my Mom's maxim people. You won't regret it.
