I aspire to be authentic in all that I do. And yet, today here I am wanting to manage the perceptions of others regarding when I arrive at a gathering. Not only am I sure that they don’t care, but more than that, I am appalled that I DO care. I am grateful to have noticed this going on in my mind, and grateful that I can laugh at myself.
By the way, when I arrived 11 minutes early, I was the last one to arrive! I had a good laugh about that!
