Today I realized that I’d completely dropped the ball on a few things. Now what?!?

It’s that moment when you realize that you’ve forgotten something, or simply lost track of something.

I call it, “Misplacing something in my schedule.”

And what really happened is that it DIDN’T GET PLACED ON THE SCHEDULE.

My first response was, “Oops! Wow, I can’t believe that happened.”

Then I felt kinda bad — l felt like I had been irresponsible.

I felt judged — by myself.

Have you ever dropped a metaphorical “ball” in your life? Of course you have.

We all have!

Then we judge ourselves…

Have you ever done this?


This time I’m doing something different!

Right now I’m asking myself these 4 things in order to answer the question of “Now what?”

The next time this happens to you, try this…

1. Ask yourself why you were carrying it in the first place.

2. Ask yourself why you dropped it, but only for learning…not loathing on yourself.

3. Ask yourself if you’d like to pick it up again.

4. If the answer is yes, then pick it up. If the answer is no, then make the decision to lay It down and keep moving ahead.
