Being a good organizer, I have planned my day.I've listed all the activities and schedules for the next 24 hours. I have a lot to accomplish. I am not one for being caught up in trivial matters. I am methodical and efficient with my time. After all time is valuable and should be utilized wisely. So I have made my plans for the day.
And what a day ! From early morning, everything seems to be conspiring to make a mockery of my plan, of my efficiency. I have been confronted with many unexpected circumstances, demanding my time and energy, keeping me away from the "real", or so I think, things that concern me, Yes, life is full of it's uncertainties and my best made plans are sometimes made useless and ineffective.
The best way to maintain a state of equilibrium and always remain calm is to become an observer. Step aside a little and watch the scenes of drama. Even though I am an actor in the scene and even though I have to enact my role in these events, I can develop a state of conscious detachment that helps me to deal more effectively with the situation. Being too close, I take my role in the drama for the real thing. I become confused, intimidated and worst of all, lose my cool - my equilibrium.
