God just be working miracles man.
So I’m not a patient person, that’s the unfortunate fact. Last night I was trying to be proactive and install a new update because I tend to be lazy and always come round to these things late. As I sat there anticipating its arrival, I got bored and felt browsing through Instagram would be more interesting than waiting for an update. So I put my phone off and lo and behold my data stopped working. I thought it was a fluke and didn’t mind it. How ironic that THIS was when I was fine with waiting, when I thought I hadn’t been badly affected by anything.
Anyway, so this morning it was still the same story, ‘searching…’ I started to panic a bit but then I distinctly heard a voice say ‘Calm down. Be patient’ I left my phone off for a bit and decided to look at it with fresh eyes. All the suggestions from Apple Support didn’t seem to work for me. Until something reminded me that I hadn’t fully installed ios8 at the end of the day due to my impatience. So I re-installed it and….WAZAAA,
My network came back from oblivion.
But my problems didn’t end there. I was so joyful it returned that I failed to check if it even worked. Unfortunately it didn’t. I became fearful yet again (as if I didn’t learn from my lessons) and tried all the suggestions the internet gave me..no luck. My amazing friend, Camilla was so helpful and gave me some suggestions too and even though they didn’t work, at least I wasn’t alone in this.
I then remembered, my Dad always knows how to fix these technical issues- I mean he did decide to become an Engineer (that may be stereotypical but he legit knows all the answers to these things and if he doesn’t he will find out #superman). So I emailed him and within minutes he was calling me to find out what exactly happened. I decided to calm down a bit and wait and within the next few minutes, he emailed me with the answer and it finally worked. My data is back boos.
Okay so this may be such a tiny thing that some of you may look at and laugh but honestly for me it just proved that I need to stop ‘searching…’ (Get it?) for answers and simply be calm, be patient and wait. I had this chat with one of my incredible friends the other day and she told me that, most of time what makes you rush to get to places is the fear that you won’t get there eventually. And,
‘FEAR IS NOT FACT. IT’S MADE UP AND RESTRICTS YOU FROM WHAT YOU’RE MEANT TO DO.
FACT OVER FEAR.’ – Gwendolyne Brown
So I transfer my current state of calmness to you.
Peace & Love,
