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.
