I was in disbelief that it wasn’t!
- I went to the app’s site for recovery instructions, nothing.
- Then I had to face the fact that EVERYTHING is gone.
- I then slowly retraced my browser history and had hope.
- With the history of browser links, I made an outline on my Evernote.
- I now have a better idea of writing my articles.
Always account for variable change.
So yeah, when dealing with worse case scenarios, remember these 5 things:
- If there’s a bad thing that happened, there’s really always a good lesson behind it. Spend a few minutes to recoup and think what it might be (for me it was to rely on using outlines again!).
- Appreciate the silver lining after the storm. If it weren’t for this unfortunate situation of losing my well-researched article, I wouldn’t appreciate doing outlines & browser history tracking now. So in a way this meant I am saying hello to better writing! Also, Evernote is a must-have for work.
- You can’t expect everything to be within control, even if you think it will be. Best to always pack up and be ready.
- LET GO. Some things are just not meant to be pined over.
- It’s okay to start from scratch. You may get scathed but you’ll be alright. During the aftermath, you will find yourself learning to reach for support. Start there.
I hope you find the strength to begin again. I know you can do it.
And remember, if it’s not alright it’s not the end. 😉
What is one worse case scenario that you’ve had in your life and what good did it bring you? I’d love to know and perhaps add your story to a “Silver Linings” compilation sometime here in the blog if you allow it so.
Sending you magic from the universe. ✨ Everything will be alright, dreamer.
