Posts Tagged ‘Proof of Life’

So

What’r ya gonna do.

You get ready to review and send those two class papers that you spent a day and a half plus all the little bits of time here and there when you were looking up the info that you would need for the day and a half finalizing time and guess what?  Apparently you did not save your finished version of paper #2.

That’s right – you heard me.  DID NOT SAVE THE FINISHED VERSION OF THE PAPER.

OK – some perspective here.  It is not a big hard paper.  Paper #1 was the harder one.  But it’s the idea.  It IS frustrating to look and look and look and it just keeps on not being there.

The upside?  This is a proof of life moment for me.  Yes, really it is.  I remember the day when something just this simple could send me into an emotional tailspin of despair over ALL the things wrong in my life and endless recriminations.  Such dark days.

But when I came across this the other day I felt none of that.

Was I frustrated?  YES

Was I aggravated?  YES

Did I despair?  NO   I moved on.

Make a plan for another day to sit down and remember what you wrote.   Be thankful that you’re not a “wait til the last minute and create a terrible crises person” (although I know some people thrive on crises – find something else to be thankful for : ) ).

Think

Make a new plan

Move on

Live

You know, I don’t really have many hits on my blog.  I do like to have the people show up.  It makes me feel connected but still it’s OK if I don’t.  I remind my self why I do this and interestingly, several of the folks who have shown up and communicated have also reminded me why I do this.

These people that I’m referring to are the ones who are talking about their journey to becoming better people.  A journey.  To be a better person.

Better. Saner. Kinder. Stronger. More Fearless.  More loving.  More giving.  Stronger in faith.  Stronger in relationships. Stronger in life.  Healthier perspectives.  Healthier emotions.  This list could go on of course.

Like I said – reminds me why I do this.  This blog has been my place to process.  It’s where I talk it through.  I feel like I’m talking to someone – haha – even when I know no one is stopping by!  I’ve tried at various times through the years to journal but it just didn’t have the same effect.  I knew I was alone.  So I started blogging in 2008, right before moving to Dallas.  Started out with an “up” attitude.  Then it started going down and became erratic.  Then I felt like I needed to back away from this.  If I remember correctly it was at least partly because I didn’t want to vomit my stuff on anyone.  So I stopped for about two years.

But I didn’t stop my forward movement.  

I came back this year because the desire to communicate again welled up in me.  Something shifted in me during the last part of 2012.  It was a good, healthy shift.  I feel like I’ve done some honest to goodness growing up.

Is life perfect? no   Do I still have some regrets?  yes  Could it be that like Jacob I will always walk with a limp?  Probably

But that’s OK.  That is life.

This is good and I’m enjoying seeing this process in other people’s lives.  I am truly blessed with things I read in people’s blogs.  I am blessed that people just want to be better – whatever that may mean to them.  I’m blessed that people are just living life in this world.

I applaud you.

AND I pray for you whoever you are that God will bless your journey and that you will find grace and help every time you need it.
