Lost and Found
The last 24 hours have been a bit frustrating.
I tried to use a projector to show a movie at a friend’s house, and the projector wouldn’t work because the movie (which was purchased) had copyright protection. Frustrating!
I brought a camera to the same place yesterday, and I couldn’t find my little camera pouch with the charger this morning. Frustrating!
I charged a set of earbuds in anticipation of going on a bike ride after church today. When I unplugged the USB cable I discovered that one of the wings that keep the earbuds in your ears was missing, and I couldn’t find it. Frustrating!
Dear Reader, these are trivial things, but they are frustrating none-the-less. Time to pause and think…
It would have been much worse if I couldn’t show the movie at my friend’s son’s birthday, but I was able to figure out how to use a different streaming solution.
It would have been much worse if I had lost my nice camera, instead of its charger. My camera uses USB to charge its battery and I have other USB chargers.
It would have been much worse if I had lost the earbuds. I have another set of bluetooth earbuds and I was able to borrow a pair of “wings” from them.
I don’t like to be frustrated, but sometimes it happens. Today my goal is to realize that frustration is a part of life.
It is also my goal to realize that sometimes frustrations have simple solutions and sometimes they don’t. When I can fix something, I should. When I can’t, I need to accept that fact and move on.
