Live and Learn

Yesterday, I woke up fully prepared to make it a hugely productive day, and the first few hours were.  I was feeling pretty good about everything.  But then life, as it sometimes tends to do, threw me a curve ball and as usual, I had no idea how to respond to it.

I’m not going to go into detail here, because in the end, it really wasn’t a big deal, but at the time, I thought my entire world was ending.  That’s the kind of melodramatic nonsense you get to put up with when you are or you know a creative mind.  My first response to this traumatic event, of course, was to cry and call my dad.  He’s my go-to guy for crises, mostly because he is very calm and rational and lets me know exactly how I need to respond (which is often the exact opposite of how I planned to respond).

Again, this wasn’t that big a deal.  It had nothing to do with my books or business.  But still, it had me very worried and unfortunately, I let it get me down the entire day.

Today, I’m feeling better, but I’m still a little worried (what can I say, I’m a dweller).  Mostly, however, I’m disappointed that I let almost an entire day get away from me due to circumstances beyond my control.  However, it’s not the first time it’s happened and I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last, because that’s just the kind of person I am.  It’s not something I particularly like about myself, but it’s there and I have to learn to live with it and hopefully work through it.

In other news, there are rumors circulating the world wide web about the possible return of Harry Potter?!  Oh, be still my heart and please, please, PLEASE let them be true!  JK, you tease us so!  If that’s not a sign from the universe that everything is going to be okay, I don’t know what is!
