I Apologize in Advance for Murphey’s Law

Welcome to my BLOG and thank you for joining me. This Blog is an opportunity to share my experiences, thoughts, my writing, personal and others journey. It will explore my evolution as I take pictures and post them, while sharing stories along the way of the locations, situations and people I meet while doing the Mona in the 6IXX or #monainthe6ixx advertising, promotion, marketing campaign. These pictures provided me with an opportunity to meet everyday people, possible readers and fans of the Mona’s Secret Diaries Shadows of the Past: Trilogy; and explore Toronto, the GTHA and the 6IXX in all its beauty and splendor. The Mona in the 6IXX Campaign came out of a creative necessity to get the word out about the books without a budget. Each picture is posted on social media i.e. Instagram, Facebook etc., and I share the stories behind the pictures in this Blog.   Doing this Blog is a little intimidating, I will be learning along the way; please be patient with me. I promise, I will screw up a number of times; when all is said and done. Forgive me quickly and thank you. As I have learned; Life is Like That! No matter how hard you try; something may, could and can go wrong. Murphy from Murphy’s Law is acting up again like a constant thorn in my side.

MURPHY Showed Up Again. Uninvited 

Like the editing mistakes I still made, even after reading my story a hundred and one times; telling me it required a hundred and two readings. Trust me, it stabbed me in the heart when I saw it too; I felt betrayed. Was it dyslexia, brain fog and or was I edit blind after reading 101 966 words numerous times. Maybe yes, to all of the afore mentioned and more; with no excuses and just a painful reminder of Murphy and my own limits in various parts of my life to self edit. I Apologize in Advance; trust me I am taking a page out of life and my own.

MOST IMPORTANT LESSON LEARNED 

When a mistake is made; admit it and correct it as quickly as possible. Forgive yourself, or others and or both. Don’t beat your self up and others (I know its hard). I have yet to meet a perfect person in life, some have came close (until they use my bathroom). Life is like that…never forget Murphy is always lurking over in the corner, threatening to disrupt all our plans. For instance, I have read, heard and been warned about this Pandemic for the past thirty plus years; but was I ready for it or was any of us. I would say no even with thirty plus years of warning and the last pandemic one hundred years ago still have living survivors; few as they are. Best laid plans, intentions, editing; its all the same. Life happening and we question the limited control we think we have. Accept and live each new day with a fresh start to get it RIGHT! Hopefully.

Thank you for sharing a small part of your day with me; I hope you enjoy these posts. Please leave a comment, tell a friend and or share a story.  Have a great weekend and stay safe. And remember do something spontaneous and unexpected.
