I got some mail yesterday that put me in a bad mood. Well, first I was furious then started calling numbers but they were smart and didn’t pick up the phone. Then I started to write a letter but stopped to check if I got all the facts right and then I realized that it was my fault.
I forgot to do something. Now I’m mad at myself for forgetting and mad at the institution for not reminding me or something.
So, I try to see the thing from another point of view. I’m trying to figure out if this was something that the Universe is trying to help me with or whatever. But can’t seem to find the silver lining.
Then I read about Jobs who died yesterday and his quote:
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure -- these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important."
My little thing doesn’t seem so big right now, does it?
But with all do respect to mr. Jobs, it is party time today!! Join us at PPF.
The Butterfly Effect to see how you can still enter this week. We all have portraits, right? So, what’s up? Why aren’t you linking over there? :)
You can get a head start on next week’s theme which is wings. And if you link up next week you’ll have a chance to win this painting of mine once it’s finished. It will be by Monday. I promise.
Oh, crap! I just remembered I forgot to do the October's newsletter. Or was it September’s. I have no clue. Either way I’m late. I’ll make sure I’ll do it by tomorrow. Subscribe on the top left sidebar if you want to. :)
