A Moment of Turmoil…. and then… peace!

I’m constantly doubting myself. Always second guessing and regretting what I did or didn’t say or do. Below is a journal entry I wrote frantically after making a mistake. A mistake by the way, which resolved itself quickly and wonderfully. But as I read back over my frazzled scribbles I wonder again and how easily I get worked up over stuff!


Can I just stay here please?

I feel like a total idiot today. I made a mistake. I actually have a chance to fix it but I’m not sure how. I want to turn the clock back. I want it to be this time yesterday. But I spend too much time wanting that. I make stupid mistakes. Usually when I’m happy and confident. When I’m like this I’m a bit paralysed. I’ve written half a response (which is already twice as long as it needs to be) and I can’t send it and I can’t delete it.
Why am I such an idiot? Why can’t I just stop when I’m supposed to stop. Instead of going too far and saying too much? Stupid Stupid Stupid woman!
And now I can’t write. Can’t write anything cos I have a stupidity cloud sitting on my head. I’ve a lump in my throat and I want to cry, I’m so bloody annoyed with myself.
What do I do now? I can’t turn the clock back, I can ask the other person to, but no matter what happens it’ll always be there. And asking to turn the clock back will draw more attention to it than if I just reply to the email casually.
But I can’t. I can’t casually blow it off. I want not to have received the email. Not for the person to feel they had to send it at all.


And quick as a flash it was sorted. Thank you Lord. The other person got in touch and actually felt like I did. “Lets’ turn the clock back 24 hrs” and we did. And it worked.

Drawing a line under that one; as I wait for the next one… :/

    I comment each time I appreciate a post on a website
    or I have something to contribute to the conversation. It’s triggered by the
    fire displayed in the article I browsed. And on this post A Moment of Turmoil.
    and then peace! | Just another Christian woman talking through her hat!.

    I was moved enough to drop a comment :-) I do have 2
    questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or do
    a few of the responses appear like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other online sites, I would like to
    follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you list every one of your shared
    sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
