So this morning I discovered that my two year old has somehow managed to delete all the notes I had on my Ipad, and more importantly notes that I made yesterday during a very important workshop.
Still in denial, I try to turn the Ipad off just to make sure the notes are still there. After what seems like an hr I slowly come to terms with the fact that the notes are gone.
As I think about what has just happened, I feel a sense of paralysis. What am I going to do!
At that moment, I have a conversation with my self and it went something like this.
Ok, the notes are gone!
How am I going to react to this.
I cant exactly get angry, I mean, at whom will this anger be
directed at. I personally gave the Ipad to a 2yr old. What
was I expecting....what next
In brief, this summarizes conversations I frequently have with my self. Motherhood has really affected the way I interact with the world and the way i react to situations. Instead of stressing, worrying, fuming, I have learnt sometimes it is ok to just laugh at situations, Its not that bad! Dont take life to seriously!!!
The patience I have now, I could only dream off. Funny enough, I think my OCD (for me, its the need for orderliness in my house) is dicipating slowly each day that passes by :-)
Luckly enough, there was a colleague who managed to capture everything in the workshop that was important..
Thank you my little 'tornado' for helping me become a better person...
Just thought I would share.....
