I love technology when it works. But when it does not it can be a real headache. I recently bought a new computer and for whatever reason the separate keyboard I have won’t work with the new computer. I tried four different keyboards with many back and forth trips to Wal-mart. Then after three trips to Best Buy with an exchange of the first computer and second computer doing the same thing, I finally have a new computer (new model) on order to hopefully take care of this challenge I have had. Even the Geek Squad was stumped at this dilemma.
I was frustrated, but not like I used to get. I decided when this all started to really become an issue that I had a choice. I could be really, really upset and moan and groan, or I could simply walk through the steps it was going to take to get this resolved. I thought about all the times my little girl Frankie has taught me patience. It was time I had to put it into practice once again. It certainly didn’t make the issue go away, but I felt better not getting all worked up about it.
I also remembered this past Sunday and time out on the deck with my dear Johnnie and sweet Kylie. We roasted weenie’s in the chiminea and had a wonderful, relaxing time. This is what matters most. The computer issue will get resolved one way or another. And focusing on what brings me joy helps when times like this are not how I define joy.
