Grace (n.) – favour or goodwill / a manifestation of favour, especially by a superior / mercy; clemency; pardon
This morning I lost it at a cab driver, who didn’t know how to work the meter machine and instead of printing me a receipt, he managed to reset the damn machine and hence my hopes to claim back the amount of money from my employers went down the drain.
I was cold, bitchy and extremely unforgiving.
And as I climbed up the stairs to get to the office, it occurred to me that I had zero grace. Zero. Which is not on, not from someone like me, who depends on grace to get through the day, every day. And not even grace from God, which is ever abounding, but the amount of grace my boss shows me is quite incomprehensible sometimes. Like this morning when he called me at 11:53 and woke me up. I was supposed to be at the studio by noon. Yeah.
So as I climbed up the stairs to get to the office, these thoughts were going round and round in my head…
And I, once again, realised how much I suck at this thing called life. Bah.
