Life has a funny way of forcing you to do things that you should be doing.

Earlier this year, in a moment of distraction, I left my purse on the train while transferring stations. I realized immediately after existing the train, having an “oh s***!” moment as I watched the train doors close and bid farewell to my essential belongings. Despite immediately notifying the station manager and filing a claim, no kind soul retrieved my purse, which contained all my credit cards, my ID’s, and car keys.

In the meantime, I cancelled all my cards, ordered a new drivers license, and had to have a locksmith create new keys for my car. My participation in various economic transactions was very limited. Thankfully my phone was not lost, but if you didn’t have Venmo, we could not do business until I got my cards sorted.

I probably lost close to $500 from this ordeal. But the monetary pain and suffering paled in comparison to taking a mental inventory of every thing I had tied to my various credit cards and fixing it. Every bank account, every store, every streaming service…even the frikkin pizza place! How tragic that I could not Easy Order on the Domino’s app without having to painstakingly key in my credit card details.

And just when I thought I had mitigated everything, there was one important renewal I had missed: my web-hosting. Over the years, it has been worth the yearly fees to have a web presence. I have mad dreams of being the next thought leader – but with so many varied interests, it has been difficult to focus on a brand other years, so I let the website get stale. It has been hard to get myself together to write and create. I also had stopped publishing my weekly webcomic. I had been so distracted that I did not even realize the auto-renealws for web hosting I relied so heavily on these last few years were tied to my old credit card.

So while daydreaming about what to write about next, the web host removed my old website files. And earlier this week, while I was taking a break from my stressful day job, I realized…my websites had gone dark!! Ugh, one more thing for the to-do list…

Thankfully, I was able to get my domain names back. I seriously doubt they were ripe for the picking, but still…they were mine! However, this could not have come at a better time because I truly need to re-brand and showcase some of the more recent trips I have been on. I am also hoping to pivot this site to serve as an amalgamation of writings on spiritual insights, as well as some of the deeper dives into personality psychology. So instead of scratching my head and figuring out how to create the site from a back-up…I will rebuild!!!
