Don't you just hate when this happens...
Its a liesurely day at home or the office...
...you're sitting at your computer, totally inspired as you effortlessly write an email to its recipient while words flow out of you as if from thin air. You stop to take a break from your psuedo novella and reread what you've written so far and marvel at your own brilliance as you smirk and say to yourself, "Damn I'm good!" Then suddenly as if to mock you for feeling entirely too damn good about yourself, your little omnipotent data process machine decides to short circuit causing a freeze which leaves you completely perplexed forcing you to agonizingly wait...wait...wait. And then wait some more. After 5 minutes of sitting in sheer-code-red-I-wanna-throw-this-damn-thing-out-my-front-door-into-the-street-to-leave-for-the-feral-varmints-to-have-their-way-with frustration (okay, for me its more like 20 seconds!) the only left to do is hit backspace at which point it takes you back to your ORIGINAL destination of Empty Email Template HELL!
Uh huh...yep, this has happened to me now not once, but 3 times in the past 24 hours. Today, however, when it happened YET again, I made a conscious decision to react differently. I remembered how the previous two emails had not only eventually been rewritten and gone out to their addressees, they actually were better emails than the ones I had originally created. Has this ever happened to you?
Sometimes, I believe, we're given second (or third or fourth) chances in life so that we can "get it right" the next time around. When you're frustrated with your current circumstance, wondering why it is the way is, why things turned out the way they did, why you're alone instead of with someone, etc, think about when you got the chance to re-do something, and how much better you were for it because the end result was infinitely better.
Like with the email circling around somewhere in outer-cyper space, if you are in wait-mode, you are in a wonderful place to decipher how you will do it differently next time. Once this aspect of your life has been rewritten, you will look back and be grateful for the disruption that forced you to make some necessary changes. How great is it that we are given opportunities to recreate, redesign and reevaluate things in our lives' so that we can make them even better the next time around?
