So, my email has been down since 4:25am on Friday. That means that all day on Friday I had no email!!! So, I have been doing other things such as working on this blog.
I usually don’t use that much email on the weekends, however, I was surprised how lost and disconnected I feel. Then when I talked to my support at web.com I got my email from the last 3 hours but none of my folders were there. None of my contacts…OUCH!!!
We take our technology for granted. My email address firstname.lastname@example.org has been working since 1998. Now, all of a sudden since I have my new website for Learning and Reflective Growth for Individuals and Teams (larg.com) updated all HELL has broken loose. Now, it seems that I cannot even see my website… I can get it on my phone, my tech guy can get it but my little MacBook Air has not been able to get it with Safari or Chrome.
OK so I called Apple. This very nice lady is trying to help me. She told me it is my server problem. I told her my server guy said that is not correct; he had me call her. So I asked her to try it on her browser. It worked. Yep. So, she told me “I can get it. You just can’t get it on your machine. I told her, “yes, that is correct, that is why I called you.” So now I am on hold again.
So, what can I learn from this???? Be happy for the “little” miracles like email and internet access. Be happy for sunshine, rain or whatever the weather is at this moment. I try so hard not to get upset… these people are trying to help me. This is a test of my patience. I try to laugh when things don’t work exactly as I had planned. Smile and remember that “this too shall pass”, “If it won’t matter in 5 years then let it go” and all of those other mantras that my grandmother used to say.
But, grandma did not have internet.
