Did You Hit Delete?



Have you ever hit delete in error?

We always get a prompt – are you sure you want to delete? Or “Proceed to delete?”

“Are you sure you want to permanently delete this file?”

You get a second chance. Will we be given a second chance before we are “Deleted?”

All this reflection started out when to my utmost horror and astonishment I discovered that the number of photographs in my “Album” on my Samsung phone had changed from 3,000 to 3!  WTH!

I took a deep breath and said, surely, there must be a mistake.” Quickly went through each album on my phone – and as my heart thumped, the tears came trickling out – oh dear! All the photos were gone!  Sad. So Sad. Very Sad.

There went pictures from my daughter’s wedding – I consoled myself with the fact there were professional ones from the photographer; and in a way, it was a blessing that I got rid of the clutter. 

As the day transpired, I began to think of other photos that were deleted, and my heart opened the gate to sorrow. Go away sorrow – go away please. Photos of the blackboard from the Ayurveda classes were gone!  Oh no! The worst was ALL the photos from the farmers markets were gone – all the potential blogs….no more. No more sexy looking okra and red as ruby raspberries – all poofed into space. My heart continued to plummet while feelings of despair continued to taste the air.
 
Lesson Learned – this was a wake-up call – just do what you have to right there and then – post the pictures of the veggies right there and then. Whatever you want to do in life, just do it or make plans to, there might not be a second chance or going back. Don’t procrastinate  - whether it be forgiving or hugging someone, calling a loved one or simply loving yourself and taking that trip to Bali ;) for no one knows what tomorrow holds or when it is our turn to be deleted.
 
 Before they hit
Delete
and you become
Obsolete,
Merrily accomplish your
Feat
and
Enjoy a life so Complete!

Have you found your true purpose here?  Are you living life to the fullest?
 
Wait no longer, my friend!
Cheers!
