Yesterday was filled with don'ts. First, I lost a bunch of code at work because of something I didn't realize about our version control system.
Then after fasting and a doctor's appointment, I got to try Smashburger, a place I had never been to before.
I know it looks good, but the food was heavy. Plus, I hadn't worked out that morning. Plus, I had a shake. After I felt sleepy, slow, and just bad.
Plus, I came home and stayed up way past my bedtime with Missy, playing Minecraft.
I had trouble getting to sleep, and now I'm running late for my day. I was a bit of a mess getting up this morning.
Why would I be grateful for any of that? Because mistakes are how we learn.
After my code mistake I began putting things back together, and committing each file as I did.
Today I know that it's okay for me to have a moderate amount of junk food, but not a lot all at once. I know my limits.
I also know that as much as I had fun playing video games, I'm as much (actually more) my own grownup as Missy is, and when it was bedtime I should have spoken up, and got ready for bed.
Learning is hard. But it's good.
