I’m worried – that I’ve missed something. What is it? Let’s recheck everything before I go … and why don’t I take extra paper and pens … and how about snacks – healthy snacks … does that mean a trip to the store? Yes! OK … I’ll do that …
I don’t know if I should go … if it’s right for me to be there. Well I committed, but I’d feel better if I finished that paper I’ve been working on first … and how about that mending I’ve been ignoring …
It’s my head that makes me late. Every time! Being used by me to avoid something I already know: that I’m anxious about doing something, or that I really should have said No but said Yes instead.
Once I acknowledge that thing I already know, I’m fine. I drop the chatter and get going.
Why are you late? What do you already know?
