Tackling the Update…

IMG_6039-2 copyLast night…I figured out how to back up my website…now…it really isn’t hard to back up…just one click…it was installing the app and getting it connected to the storage drive that was complicated…

But…with the help of my dear friend…Goggle…and a couple of hours of lost sleep time…I got it done…so this morning…I updated my website to the latest version…

Now…for those of you who are techie…that may sound like no big deal…but for me who barely knows a hard drive from A Hard Day’s Night…it was quite an accomplishment…and one that I’m very proud of…

Interestingly…the update took about two minutes to accomplish…and now that the backup is installed and scheduled…it is automatic…so…all those weeks…that I’ve worried about doing it myself…were really…wasted time…

Bertha…laughed at me…of course…she wasn’t around when I was doing the installing…but she did remind me…that tackling a job…is the best way to get it finished…

Thanks…Bertha…for the obvious…

A Better World Starts Here…

This morning…there was a question posed on Google

If I could create one thing to make the world a better place…

Well…immediately…my mind started racing…some kind of chocolate…dishwashing robots…self-cleaning floors…plus sized clothes that make me look model-thin…

Thankfully…Bertha…stopped me before my list became longer than my arm…reminding me…that although there have been many inventions that made the world better…there are many people who do not have access to those inventions…who…are incredibly happy in their lives…and…there are many people who have access to them…who…are incredibly unhappy in their lives…

Bertha…says…that a better world is…a happier world…and that one invention or even ten…won’t do that…that it is an inside job…then she reminds me of the three things that we all want and need in life…

To be heard…

To be understood…

To be loved…

And…while she says it is important for me to offer this to the people in my life…that…it is most important…that I start with myself…really listening to my inner voice…understanding who I am and what I’m saying…and…loving myself…
