I woke up this morning ready to welcome the new day. I gave praise, prayed, and sat down to get an early start on blogging…because today I felt good, (and totally let yesterday get away from me).
“Uh oh”, I thought to myself as I stared at a screen with new WordPress options… “Did I do that or did they?”. Beginning to feel the tension build (already), I heard the Word say to me, “good morning”…and I replied, “good morning”. My eyes still fixed on the screen, the conversation continued… “what we got here?” (yes, I have these internal conversations, a lot)… and I thought, well… let’s see, what do we have here.
It was the new (to me), but old (to some) Block Editor from WordPress. I had recently read about it and thought, “eh, …‘won’t be using that”. And now, here it was, staring me down, daring me to eff with it. And, you know I did.😏
Since I couldn’t figure it out how to exit and leave the program right away, I actually had to use it to update the post. Long story short, I worked through it, and returned to what I knew and was most productive with, the old editor.
Two important lessons, maybe three:
- Stop saying what I won’t do; especially if you have the knowledge—use it.
- Open yourself to the Wisdom of God and believe in your ability to accomplish difficult things.
- Enjoy the journey. Let the would-be frustration be the fuel to power your victory.
It’s easy to get frustrated when facing new challenges. But if you treat the challenge as a new journey and follow what ever instructions you have as if it were directions or a map, and allow yourself time to enjoy the ride… things will work out so much better. That’s what I learned today. I hope you enjoy your, Today’s Journey, and learn as much from it as well.
