Do you, like me, have an uneasy feeling about 2020?
After nearly three weeks of struggling to get going and constantly meeting all kinds of resistance, I am on the verge of deciding to swap the big dream for a series of smaller ones.
I already knew this year would be full of changes, most of which won’t be pleasant. In order to cope with these changes, I must regroup somehow and simplify my writing/blogging and life in general in order to cope with the chaos. Cruise control if you will, so I can somehow manage to survive.
You can’t keep on fighting if you’re getting nowhere, especially in times of stress, so it’s time to find the path of least resistance which in my case, means reverting to baby steps.
I had wondered how long it would take for the old demon to infect my new PC, but it’s back! Endless buffering, broken links, missing images, you name it and it ruins my blogging day. The worst part of it all, is I’m not altogether sure what the problem is.
Apart from ruining my mood, I can soon lose concentration when things refuse to work properly. I mean, what is the point of it all?
I thought that by admitting to myself that I wasn’t coping, this would resolve the problem, but this wasn’t good enough apparently.
The baby elephant in the room is insisting I do something!
There are some problems you can track down and find a reason for and hopefully fix, so I have been busy double checking everything.
I discovered I needed to verify my Microsoft account. This surprised me, for surely, I did all this when I first uploaded the new pc, just a few months ago?
You need a mobile phone to obtain the code, but I don’t have one, so enlisted help from the family. Job done, and pc seems to be working better, so hopefully peace will reign for a while!
As for the situations I can do nothing about, I have decided to alter my attitude towards them and adopt more positivity.
No point arguing or getting upset. Changes will have their way and we will live to see the dust begin to settle again…

Self-doubt is a horrid thing. I know as I’ve had it…But now I’m a lot older… I tend to take deep breaths, say ‘OM’ a lot (silently) and let whatever’s happening happen…It’s all kideroo stuff but it usually works. If you can learn to swim through the good AND bad times, you usually reach the shore. (No charge…Just a well-wisher. I feel your unrest. x)
