I must admit that I have been in a very depressed state the last month or so after I dropped my computer and lost so many memories. No just photos, videos, and music. I also lost all of my 2013 work documents and all of my progress on the second book I was writing. I’ve really been beating myself up. If I hadn’t let it slip off of the counter, if I had been more responsible, more diligent. If only I had backed up my documents.
The what if’s are endless. I just kind of gave up and resigned myself to the fact that maybe bad things happen for a reason and I should just give in and give up. All of this negative mojo made it very difficult to get in the holiday spirit. But I received one of the most thoughtful gifts for Christmas. While I have been moping around, my family snuck and had my computer fixed. All of my documents are still gone, but the unwavering faith my family has in me is quite humbling. They don’t want me to give up, they want me to keep writing. Their love and support was enough to make me shape up and snap out of my doom and gloom mentality.
So, I already know what my New Year’s resolution will be…to keep working and do everything in my power not to let them down. Oh, and maybe not drop my computer again, like ever.
