Some mistakes take less of a toll on me than others. I think some of if the hardest for me are the ones I make when I’m trying VERY hard. Trying my absolute best should to do the trick, right? Alas, no, not always. Trying hard certainly stacks the deck in one’s favor, but it’s no guarantee. Things still happen that alarm and disappoint.
Let’s take today for example. After much work, editing and proofreading, I sent out my email blast this morning for the upcoming Second Annual Tapping Prayerfully Retreat – The Taproot of Truth. I was so excited. I worked hard on it and was sure I’d covered my bases. Then, I get an email from a good (and very observant) friend letting me know that the buttons to the registration page were taking people to LAST YEAR’S PAGE. It cheerfully says, “Event over. Registration closed.” UGH. Being the grounded, wise, peaceful soul that I am, the first thing I did was PANIC. “I failed. I’ve confused everyone. Now no one will come, and it was going to be so good.” I really went to town.
Then I remembered to tap. “Even though my very best may not always be enough, I trust at my core that I’m a good person.” “Even though I have dyslexia, and my eye doesn’t always catch details, even when I’m trying hard, I know I’m so much more than one challenge in my life.” “Even though I want my gifts to always be perfect, I choose to love my humanity.”
I didn’t have much more tapping to do from there. Just the set-up had brought me a long way. From there I tapped and breathed and ended with the calm thought, “This can easily be fixed. I have what I need to take care of this.”
It is fixed by the way :”) I replaced the links and I sent out an Ooops email with the buttons happily taking people to the right page. The retreat will be great. You may want to Check it out
All human beings welcome. Blessings, Jeanne
