When I woke up the computer this morning and was faced with this message:
“Something Went Wrong”
Well, alright. Something goes wrong all the time. So much so that I couldn’t imagine this world without things going wrong.
What gave me pause wasn’t what was wrong, but that it was giving me a choice. I could “X” out of this wrongness or I could be “Okay” with the wrongness. Furthermore it gave me pause to decide where it had gone wrong. One can’t really know what’s going wrong until it’s gone wrong.
As I stare at the message I can’t help but reflect on the great many things that feel as they had gone wrong in my life so far. A failed marriage, certain regrets with relationships, both casual and parental. Opportunities missed, if not downright ignored…
As I stare at the screen my heart wholly agrees. Yes, “Something Went Wrong”.
The beautiful thing staring right at me is the choice. The choice to close it out and ignore it or be okay with it.
So this morning I’m reminded that something went wrong. But you know what, I’m okay with that. Are you?
