Had our family meeting yesterday. It was so-so. Got some inkling of what to expect in the future, who was interested in moving forward, and what progress we were liable to make, moving forward.
Now the internet was mostly to blame , if not the main culprit. It foiled our plans, for a worldwide family meeting on Zoom.
But then we have to take into consideration the lack of planning for that failure. I was sadly lacking in foreknowledge.
I had set up a Zoom session, but due to poor internet coverage in that area, it was a fail. To be honest, I did not foresee that. As we needed the numbers for voting, it was a bust with no Zoom room. Alas, I lament the total day wasted..
It is my village, but I don’t live there, so I didn’t know about the internet coverage of that area, not being too good.
I do blame myself for not finding that out beforehand. I was too excited about the meeting, I overlooked that one crucial detail. Now we have to reschedule the meeting at a different venue, start all over again. Costing money, time and energy expended, in the process.
They say hindsight is better than foresight, but naivety and ignorance can play a crucial role in things falling apart.
I adhere to the adage though, that ‘once bitten, twice shy’, sharpens my senses and cements my resolve.
I have learnt from my mistake. I will lick my wounds, but move forward from here, better, stronger, more committed to the cause. To my family.
Be safe. Be committed.
Uniquely made by a loving creator, be the best You, authentic, charming and charitable…
