Sometimes things don’t work out like you plan. Sometimes things are much more difficult than you expect or wish. Sometimes, there are barriers that arise that you didn’t see coming. These things can wreck your day, they can wreck your mood and they can even wreck your momentum and plan. If you let them.
Today, I am traveling for work. I decided to bring only my work laptop because carrying two seems silly. I always write on my Mac. I have all my website info and setup on my Mac. My password is programmed in. I got up at 4:44 AM to have time to write and post because that is what I do. I have people I want to help, after all. Well, I cannot get into my site. My password isn’t working and even my username isn’t working. Ok.
But I won’t let it stop me. I won’t even let it deter me or distract me. I have a mission to help people each day and now this situation, this unexpected roadblock has turned into an opportunity to examine these types of occurrences. I have a choice to make. Waste time worrying or trying to fix something beyond my wheelhouse and wasting all the time I have to write or write and get the right resources to help me when I have time later today? I choose to follow my calling of sharing and so I write now, troubleshoot later. It will all work out for the best. The more I roll with things, accept things, love myself enough to stay true to what I am to be doing without distraction, the better things always work out and the more relaxed and joyful I feel.
