I know I’m usually the one that is smiling, happy and upbeat with a positive outlook (didn’t I just write that 🤣). I generally write soothing poetry, post exercise and health tips with a touch of humor and there’s always Fun on Friday. If you haven’t seen it, (which I expect lots of you haven’t, PLEASE DO). My Heaven meets Hell on Fri-Yay Funday post was a little edgy and out of character for me with my collaboration but really fun for me to play with a different voice and banter with none other than Gottfried.
I can’t tell you how excited I was to share it with all of you and then when I posted it and broke the link and I ended up in WP hell, I was going crazy. How crazy is that!!!!! So now, I’m the crazy peep. We all know the feeling though of getting something up and ready to go only to find it glitched. I was like “who’s playing with me? Is this an omen from the devil himself, God, Gottfried?” 🤣🔥 And seriously, how important is this in the scheme of things in our life? IT ISN’T!! WE ALL KNOW THAT, BUT IT WAS FOR ME THAT DAY… Well, let’s be clear it was 3 days, cuz it took that long to rectify it.
If I were doing it alone I would have just taken it down and reposted it or something but I felt this tremendous pressure since it was a collaboration, and I didn’t want to let him down. I mean, I didn’t want to get fired before I even started. 🤣 It was a nightmare and I got so many emails and texts letting me know that they couldn’t get on my link. I felt like I had my first job working for peanuts but this is a hobby and hobbies are supposed to be fun but I sure wasn’t having any fun.
Thank you soooo much to all of you for coming to my rescue and heading to my post when I painstackingly asked each of you if you got the link. Honestly, it was a little embarrassing but I am sooooo grateful you came and visited and for all of your comments. There were lots of great ones but the one that made me laugh the the hardest was my husband’s when he said, “Are you Heaven or Hell?” I also wanted to see if you liked it since it was off beat for me and now there was no way to know since I couldn’t get an accurate response. You my W.P. friends, friends and family are simply the best!!!
So far, I’m going to Arizona to buy Lisa from Micro at the Macro a Star Bucks coffee, India to buy 10 of Kumar’s books, read Kevin Kinge’s new book (promise I’ll get to it), Finally read Diana’s book, from D Wallace. Thanks to Athira for telling me the new post had a broken link. Thank you so much to Johnathan Caswell, and Chuck thereluctant poem for reblogging it, Marsha from alwayswrite for linking it, Yvette for telling me it was broken, Scott from inspiredchief for always having my back and emailing me and letting me know, Kritika for the heads up and ALL of you who dropped in, commented and supported me. My kids have now banned me from W.P. and the computer for awhile. They’re right, but I’d say thats elder abuse so I’m locked in the bathroom with the lights out, so they can’t find me while i type 🤣.
When I tried to reach Gottfried in a panic for help saying “where are you”? His response was
“Out in the real world”. What real world I thought… I was steaming, we all know as writers, this is our real world 🤣. What planet does he live on anyway! Oh right, we covered that. hahahahah. Oh my, I thought what has my world come to, I am possessed. And now I find out it’s his “damn” birthday so I can’t be too mad or maybe I can, since he doesn’t apparrently like them anyway, or does he” One will never know for sure. Happy Un Birthday Gottfried!!! Smile, you should be happy, I was working for you free while you were living it up, getting you all those new followers 😀!
I finally stopped and sat in meditation, came back to center and took some deep breaths. I did a few yoga poses and got out my angel deck card and asked what was this all about and here’s what I picked.
In retrospect, I think I have been trying to find my writing voice and putting myself out in the world in a new way was scary. In truth, life is our playground and I will never be a cutter cookie person, just ask anyone who knows me. Boring I’m not, unique, we all are, thus the name of my business, Uniquely Fit. Most of you all loved it and I know that for some of you, it wasn’t your favorite for religious reasons. I want you to know that I’m sorry if this offended you in any way. That certainly wasn’t my intention and I do think there were lots of pearls of wisdom in the post, so I hope you got some of that. For the 100 positive comments we get, we focus on the one or 2 negative ones which is human nature. We have to remember, we can never please everyone, as much as we try and it’s important to honor our own style and expression. That’s the story with perfectionists but we can only do our best. There is perfection in honoring our imperfections. We are all special just the way we are and life is meant to celebrated during our short stay, in light, love, truth and always laughter.
In closing I will leave you with our fellow blogger Curt Mekeman’s quote:
The ability to laugh at oneself has to be a major factor in avoiding insanity.
Love and Blessings,
Please remember to like (if you do of course), comment and or share and have a terrific day!
