Series of Events & Atlanta Aquarium Pictures

The following pictures are from the Atlanta Aquarium before I dropped the God forsaken camera…

I’m sort of bumped out.  First, my computer crashes.  After $50 later and $14.99 a month, I find out Norton put out an update not compatible with Microsoft products and it messed up the computer.  Then, I stop receiving emails from fellow bloggers from WordPress. Spent an entire week of forums and writing back and forth with WP reps before the issue finally got corrected.  Supposedly, it was my fault.  Still can’t figure out what I did…  Lastly, what really got to me was dropping my camera…  Broke the darn thing…

I always say things happen for a reason, but I still can’t figure out what’s the purpose of these three unpleasant events in my life…  Where’s the lesson here?  I’m trying to take a deep breath and letting my sadden feelings go, but I keep trying to overanalyze things…

I am a firm believer that if you take anything, even if it’s the minutest thing, you will lose something dear to your heart…  What did I deny someone or what did I steal?  I don’t steal unless it happened to be the .47 stamp I took from work because I didn’t have any at that moment.  I also don’t think I denied anyone anything so I’m at a lost here… Is the universe playing tricks on me or is it trying to tell me to change the course of my life and do something else…

The purpose of writing my feelings down is to try to see the bigger picture and finally release my bottled up emotions and let things go once in for all…  This was the reason I started my blog in the first place.  I wanted to write down my emotions in order to figure out what was the next step, but this never occurred.  I soon found out, all I wrote was rhyming and I couldn’t get my story out…

I’m actually starting to feel a little better already…

The computer and WP got fixed and the camera can be replaced…  It’ll take me a bit before I can get another one, but it will happen; therefore, let go and move on…  There is always something else to think about and do…  Watch out world, “Here I come”…

Just an FYI – My pictures will not be as beautiful, but I still have my little camera which still works and I can continue to post inspirational sayings with my pictures…  I enjoy posting and reading my fellow bloggers blogs, therefore, that will not change.  After three years of blogging, I cannot see myself not doing it…  I just need to get back to the rhythm of things which I am doing right this minute…  Perhaps my lesson is not to give up no matter what…  If there’s a will, there’s a way…

Having Technology Difficulty

I don’t know if anyone else is experiencing this, but I am not receiving email notifications of those blogs I follow when something is posted…  Please bare with me until this is fixed.  WP is not sure what the problem is and I don’t have a clue either since I have not changed a thing.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.
