Joining The 1,000,000 Points Club...AGAIN!!!

Active Rain

 

Thanks to the tech issues with Active Rain

and massive June posts & points loss,

I was able to do something pretty unique in the Rain:

 

I crossed the 1,000,000 point level

for a second time this year!!!

 

How you ask?

 

I let a set-back become a set-up

for a comeback.

 

I didn't stop penning, posting and participating due to the loss. 

Setbacks are part of life, marriage, family, business, health, etc.

We need time to process the 5 stages of grief that come with each:

 

Denial

Anger

Bargaining

Depression.

Acceptance

 

We need to go through these stages for loss: a loved one, a job, a marriage or thousands of points in this case...which is really the disappointment of the loss of  time and effort. But, it's recoverable, one way or the other...if you don't quit.

 

Active Rain

 

Kathy Streib said it wonderfully with her words and this quote in her 

Testing Our Patience post last Saturday:

 

Patience is not the ability to wait,

but the ability to keep a good attitude

while waiting. Anonymous.


 

"And then there is the well of patience we’ve had to draw from

while this (AR) site is down.  What I know is that I can’t control

what happens regarding this site, but I can control

what I do and my own attitude."

 

So I'm enjoying reaching 1,000,000 points again,

having some fun by beating support to this occasion,

(some of you might have seen my "dare" in the Q&A),

despite the loss of so many posts and points in June.

 

 

My Attitude is Gratitude in The Rain.

Design an extraordinary day!

Brian England indeed it was, as I was competing with AR Support to see who would win the race. If they won, I still won...my points and posts back. If  they lost, well...I got my 1,000,000 and I got to get over the loss. All in fun at the end of the day, perspective is key in The Rain.
