Left for work ten minutes earlier.
It’s not much but makes me feel calmer.

But calmer I was not,
Making calculations in my head as I drive along that
I could actually make the earlier-than-my-usual train if I hurry up just a little bit.

So I did.

And I did make the earlier-than-usual train too. Whew!

Now, feeling more hurried and this was not, at all, how I pictured to start my day.
