Somehow, and I don’t know how, my posts stopped going to my FB page.  It was frustrating and I’m embarrassed to tell you how many hours I spent trying to figure out how to make the post appear, or even to find the place on my page where it even let me say something to the effect, “I want this to post to FB”, especially considering it was such an easy thing to do.  We aren’t talking complicated programming here. I almost sent out an SOS to friends and even foes if that’s what it took, because normally a calm kind of person, I was ready to THROW my computer out the window! I could not figure out how to make it work!  I stopped, listened to my new favorite song, “Keep Breathing” by Ingrid Michaelson, smelled my “Wonderful Day” aromatherapy given to me by my new, old, (not in age) BBF, WM and then I did something very unusual. I sat down and actually read the directions. And it worked!  I fixed it myself! All by myself! And I was so proud!

I told my daughter who usually gets so frustrated with me when I’m technically challenged, often for the same tasks she has helped me with repeatedly, and she smiled and said how wonderful that I did it myself, and she was so proud of me. (kid talking to mom:-) .  I smiled back, but told her not to get any bright ideas.  Just because I figured it out once, I still wanted her to help me and save me time on the next occasion!

The lesson is, we are really far more capable of things than we realize. sometimes….

xo, jan
