Life Does Not Conform…

Today is a day for celebration!  I finally got back on the internet!

I live 20kms out of the city of Fredericton in New Brunswick, Canada.  I love where I live and wouldn’t trade it for the world.  However, there are times when living in the city would be advantageous.

Today, that advantage can be condensed into two words.  Fibre Op.

Our wireless connection is notoriously unreliable.  As is our connection to satellite television.  As is the time of day when our road gets plowed after a snowstorm.  As in being able to flush my toilet during a power outage…

But I am not complaining…still wouldn’t trade it…

This time I was hit with a double-whammy.

I am not tech savvy (ask my son and he’ll tell you the same!) – a recent update skewed something in my computer and I couldn’t access my word processing documents for a time.  Then there was a motor vehicle accident that set the switching station that provides us with internet…on fire.

All of this skewed my plans to post every day in January.

So, what would a warrior do under such circumstances?

Well, she would continue!

Why?  Because this is only a minor inconvenience that reveals the good stuff when you reframe it:

  • It gave me the opportunity to do my Everything Gently practice in the face of frustration (see below).
  • It offered me the chance to read some of the books that have been waiting for me to pay them attention.
  • It allowed me to snowshoe a bit more with my husband and KC Marie, our Australian Shepherd.
  • And my cats enjoyed even more kitty lovins than normal!

All good stuff! But most of all, it taught me that…

Life does not conform to my version of what is..because life does not conform to my version of what is.

So yayyy!  I am now doing a little happy dance!

Have a wonderful day, folks!
