I just had a near miss on a social media disaster. I was copying the third part of my latest blog and lost it! First thought, PANIC! I have to confess, I am a bit of a Type A perfectionist. I meditate several times a day to offset this.
Second thought: stop, don’t think and breathe. OK, breathe some more. Not thinking is still a relatively new thing for me, so it took a good bit of breathing.
Instead of old me swirling through the 100 reasons why I will never remember my brilliant point and just what was my brilliant point, I stopped long enough to think of another option. My friends would be so proud… LOL!
And here’s what happened. Breathing helped me to redirect my thought process.
New thought: where could I have this information so that I wouldn’t have to reinvent it? Hmmm… I didn’t write in in Word. I wrote it straight into WordPress. Step One: search WordPress for a back up copy. Ok, no luck. Breathe. Breathe again.
Where else have I posted this? Aha… Facebook! Maybe, just maybe… Facebook has my brilliant thought.
Yes! Crisis averted. Amazing. Cut, paste, save. What could be easier?
Breathe…ahhhhh…doesn’t that feel great?
