Back to life, back to reality, back to the here and now.... Remember that popular 90's song by Soul II Soul? Man, that was my jam, ha ha. More than that though, those lyrics describe exactly how I feel right now. You see, last week Thursday my trusty companion, my mac computer, crashed out of the blue. No warning, just died.
Let me tell you I was devastated. Incredulous. Frustrated. All kinds of emotional. After all, I am a Graphic designer and my computer is literally my umbilical cord.
When I finally calmed down enough to think sane thoughts, I took some time off from work to regroup. (A small benefit of being my own boss) Well, my Mac had to be replaced so I ordered one right away and tried to forget how much money I was spending. (By the way that didn't work.) Then, I tried to figure out what to do with myself in the main-time... Since I had ordered my computer, I had days to wait before it arrived.
Let me tell you, the first few days sucked! Royally. I was counting down the day, hours and minutes until my computer arrived. I guess you can say that I was in digital detox......complete with nervous twitches, anxiety and the patience of a junk yard dog. This went on until it occurred to me that when I was on the computer and really busy I always told myself that if I had more time I would complete my unfinished projects, experiment with new recipes, watch some movies I had been meaning to see....and trust me the list of things to do went on. Hello, free time! Let's just say that things changed dramatically after that.
And just when I was really starting to have some fun, my new computer arrived.
I am happy that it is here. I am.....kinda. Lol, back to work I go, yay. And trust me, I have so much to catch up on. Hopefully though, I will remember a valuable lesson I learned from this whole experience. My live, my reality, is not in a box...no matter how useful or tricked out it is. Can I get a Amen!
Have a good week lovelies.
