Hey fellow blog readers…
What do you do when you lose it all? Recently I was thinking that exact thought when I had an electronics meltdown. My crackberry, computer and email program decided it was time for a permanent vacation. That’s right we’re talking Chernobyl meltdown. A permanent loss of all information – then I began to think about loss and gains.
Was a terrible loss that I lost old emails? Well on one level yes it was awful, but it helped me focus on what I needed to recover. The rest of my archive was garbage anyway. I was able to recover my contact list (thankfully), but more that I looked at it, the more I realized we all moved forward. How often did I contact people? Not enough…
Losing my notes for the book and mompreneur project was sad and very challenging. But maybe those notes were just a real first draft? Maybe I needed to take a new look at things? Who knows how the universe works – I just know that it does things at the right time, for the right reasons.
So my goal this year is only focus on important things. Plus I learned – backup and backup often.
I’ve set some time to read a couple of cool motivation books each and every month. I went back to my roles and goals and pared down my to-do list. I’m living in the moment, but I’m also planning for the future.
I wish everyone a success filled 2012. May you get everything you need to enjoy your future. Forget focusing on the past and I’ll talk again next year.
