In another world, today was less frustrating — there was no Internet outage that lasted from yesterday until this morning, meaning that I wasn’t stuck playing catch-up as soon as it came back, and I also didn’t have to chase down non-existent quotes for a story that could have run hours earlier and been news, instead of something that everyone else had already published — but that wasn’t my experience. Instead, I find myself sitting here and thinking about the difficulty of just letting something go, instead of stewing on it. I know, intellectually, that that’s the wiser of the options, accepting that I can’t change what’s driven me crazy all day, but I’m definitely stuck thinking easier said that done when it comes to following through. Grr. Argh.
Tomorrow will be another day. Maybe even one less maddening than today.
