Everything seemed to be going all right and then all of a sudden I got left behind. I do understand that the computer world changes overnight, and I just want to continue doing what I’ve always done. That’s no longer possible! “Vanity of vanities” it says in the reading from Ecclesiastes today. My wishing it would be otherwise will not slow the world down!
That’s when I need to breathe. Stop what I had been doing, and take time out to just breathe. And to remember…that it doesn’t all depend on me.
What do you have a hard time letting go of?
