3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Two minor events had a disproportionate effect on yesterday: the gas engineer reported that he could gain no access to our house and the loss of my Tumblr accounts, a year's worth of work.
In the first incident, I have little doubt that the engineer blatantly lied to make his schedule easier - there was no advance phone-call (we usually get one) and no calling card - a complaint was duly made! Let's see if one turns up today!
The second is my own fault, mixing business blogs with hobby blogs on the same account and breaking Tumblr's rules (inadvertantly) on the hobby pages, causing me to lose the lot.
Though the life-impact of these events is minor, they served to ruin my day, and caused me to sulk in my Consulting Room all evening. Fortunately, the communication between myself and Missus means that she was very understanding, for which I was most grateful. By 10pm I had finally gone into acceptance mode and went to bed early, ready to start rebuilding the online stuff but to give Missus priority.
Learning to respond appropriately to adversity is an essential part of personal development. Not having useful parental role-models, is something I'm having to learn later in life. However I'm pleased with the speed of my recovery and that I didn't hurt the ones I love.
