Yesterday I accidentally deleted a post on my blog about telemarketing that I rather liked.
Being the resourceful type and having something of a reputation for being a rather savvy golden oldie; I tried to find ways of recovering it. I resorted to Google and I found numerous posts about recovery but after what seemed like hours of effort I have been unsuccessful. How do I feel? Frustrated!
Frustration is something I experience on a regular basis in my every day life when 'things' go awry. I think it would be fair to say I am self aware so I know can't control everything. But sometimes I think I can't control anything. However, I usually get over that out of control feeling after grinding my teeth and then giving myself a jolly good talking to! I know I can control how I view the mistake and the experience of trying to resolve it. I can accept it happened and that I did my best to sort it.
I mean most of the things which happen in the daily grind, and that I sound off about, when I consider them are really of little consequence. Losing a blog post isn't the end of the world is it? Yes it's galling but the earth isn't going to tip off its axis! In fact it probably only matters to me and it only matters because I don't like making mistakes. Well again Babs tough shit you're not perfect - so what?
