Daily Nugget #138
oops i forgot!
things get forgotten.
today i’m referring to this Nugget.
other days it’s something else.
it is not possible to hold everything on our to-do or tada list
in our brains.
there just isn’t enough room!
especially with all of the other things whirling thru there.
oops! i forgot!
i forgot to call that person back
i forgot to text that person back
i forgot to email that person back.
oops! i forgot.
it wasn’t intentional.
ever send out a text or an email
you hear crickets
you wonder what the hell.
you start to make up all sorts of stuff.
‘why didn’t they text me back?!’
‘they never responded to my email!’
ooooh. we can get all bent out of shape sometimes.
some of us.
we start to take it soooooooooo freaking personally.
does this sounds like you?
b. all the time
d. i’m not attached to my tech
funny that this is the way we communicate now.
don’t get me wrong
i love technology.
i love that i can just send a quick text
when i don’t need to have a huge conversation.
i love saying ‘i’m thinking of you’
‘check out this picture, it reminds me of you’.
let’s practice not worrying about stuff so much
jumping to any conclusions
assuming that we have ANY idea what’s going on in someone else’s mind and/or world.
sometimes technology just doesn’t work.
sometimes people actually never receive our messages.
no need to fret.
just pick up the phone and connect with a real person
a voice on the other end.
rest at ease.
all is well.
unwind your assumptions
let go of your conclusions
simply reach out again.
connect for real.
have face to face
voice to voice
skype to skype
if something is really that important
then take action to connect again
in a new way.
if i ever didn’t return a text/call/email from you
it’s probably because i forgot.
