My blog this week has taken a complete turn! Last Thursday I wrote on the subject of keeping your home free of clutter. I came up with wonderful ideas of living with little chaos.
Generally I save my blog as a draft email, update it, spell check and load it onto WordPress. Well, today unable to retrieve my emails, I set about deleting pictures, downloads from Whatsapp and emails. You can see where I am going here…………..
In a bid to free up space I mistakenly deleted all my draft emails bar three. My draft blog was not one of the three!
Initially I was annoyed and then disheartened. I had put time and effort into drafting that blog and was pretty pleased with the end result. Fellow bloggers will know that feeling of completing a blog which hit the mark.
Unless there is an emergency, Sunday evening is my blog posting day. I welcome the routine and I am part of a LinkedIn forum where we post weekly from Sundays. It would not be the end of the world if I were to post my blog one or two days late but I believe in discipline and consistency.
This “blip” made me ponder on the disappointments we face in life, some through our own doing and others no fault of ours. There was not a thing I could do to bring back that draft so I had two choices; to feel downtrodden or to move on and draft a new blog.
You can guess which choice I made!
How do you deal with disappointment?
How flexible are you when life takes an unexpected turn?
