Repeat daily snags

I don’t change my behavior; I keep wondering why the world isn’t working the way my perfect routine is mapped out.

I keep hitting the same snags and think I am having a bad day.

But I’m not thinking: I am not attending to reality, and it is confronting me in more and more painful ways.
