Overwhelm doesn’t last long after Network Spinal Analysis entrainments!
I’m under the gun for time. Sticking to my word on posting every day. Just didn’t foresee how amazingly inventive I’d have to become to deliver this to you tonight.
Follow along with this delightful 2-hr nightmare, knowing it ends well and proves a valid point. Or just read for some dark laughs if you can relate to what comes next.
Overwhelm, thy name is “hard drive crash”!
Complete details: None of my tricks worked. Support not answering their phone after 20 mins and I had yet to write.
My login info is inside my hard drive. I stopped saving logins (I have hundreds) in paper form and keep it all on digital file. So, I have no hard copy of the needed login.
I tried resetting my login pass so I could make a new one via email, which I CAN get into still. Twice! No link showed up.
Went to my hosting account, which I can still access, to find the webmail that redirects to my personal email. THAT webmail, INSIDE the host, has its own login, which I’ve never memorized, because I never go in there. Plus, it’s on file in my hard drive. 😉
I actually saved logins for all my clients in hard copy form, and my own PERSONAL logins, but not the one set I need most tonight, and I have no idea why.
I am smart. I’ve faced overwhelm before. I thought ahead and invested in an external hard drive for just such instances as this unmitigated disaster. Turns out, it does not transfer files saved off a PC to my MAC, which I’m typing on now. Never knew that because until tonight, never been an issue.
And then there’s the MAC. I hardly ever use it. I’m a PC lad. Everything’s in the wrong place. Because…why not? I’m trying to save the image for this post but the editor I normally use is not here. Saved t as is but when I tried to load it into website, I got a security warning and the MAC wouldn’t let me upload it. Never seen this on PC.
I can’t even type quite right and this thing has no mouse. I’m addicted to that mouse. Haven’t had to use a touch pad in years either. (I’m seriously not just crying into my Cheerios here. It’s just that the immensity of this list makes the final act all the sweeter.)
I was actually at Family Network Chiropractic today getting an entrainment, first one in a longer than usual stretch. On these days, and especially with the extended wait from normal, I get wiped out at night. Sort of a post-entrainment crash.
So now I’m writing while feeling vaguely stoned but not in a good way and I have a muscle headache. Both are part of the readjustment and spirit cleaning that takes place hours later. (Good things.)
I had a couple important and lengthy meetings today too. Meetings seem to vampire the life blood right out of me. Tiring. I usually have an extra nap these days…a power nap…to get back on my feet. No time for nappies today.
I FINALLY remembered that I set up Family’s site in a way that lets me also post to my own Facebook account, as well as theirs. I just didn’t realize I’d come to need it in this way.
Bottom line? Marines are some of the most resourceful creatures ever created by God and man, especially when under pressure. And NSA kept me from punching my own face in in a fit of rage for sabotaging myself in such an incredible and thorough fashion.
I was getting wound up over the constant slamming of doors in my face at every new turn I took, but I didn’t quit. I think this will be in on time and I kept my cool. Something I could not readily say in the past, ESPECIALLY on a day like the one I just shared above!
All hail NSA!
Late addendum: I didn’t make my time cutoff but I completed this piece. The creation of content is what’s critical to this mission and I almost skipped it, thinking my pile of hurdles was just too high. “Watch a movie and take another whack at it tomorrow. What can I do?” was the story line of my rapidly approaching justification for failing today.
But others are counting on me and I placed my reputation on the line, in public fashion, JUST to keep me honest in times like these! 😉 So the work got done. Not perfectly. Not up to my normal standards but (hopefully) effective, nonetheless. There’s more than one important tip in there.
*2nd addendum one day later: This never posted right to our social sites and I personally had no proof that I kept my word of posting every day to those folks. So, I dug. I fixed. I am now reposting. There were other problems too. So many lessons contained within that one off day! Still working off my laptop and will be for awhile. So – a learning curve is added into the repair session. Whatever it takes, I will not stop doing what I promised.
