To start with, I apologize to my regular readers about the blog switch. The transition turned out to be lot more challenging than I had expected and there were times I felt like a kid who wants to throw his toys on the ground really hard, as well as throw a nasty tantrum. However after having said that, things are looking much better today and the design changes we are working on will be done in the next couple of days or so. I want to apologize once again for any inconvenience during this period. I promise to have it all done within this week.
A major change you will see in my blog posts will be the use of pictures instead of quotes this year, unless ofcourse I have a great quote for the post. Last year I really did not want to select pictures for each blog post because it just takes up too much time. This year, with some help, I plan to add pictures to my blog posts. They make a world of difference and add life to a post.
I guess frustrations are a part of life we just need to deal with. It is when we let our emotions get the better of us and make rash decisions that it really hurts. I am sure many of us are guilty of having said or done things in a fit of frustration that we did not intend to. Being able to control our emotions in such circumstances can save us a lot of trouble because this sort of behavior invariably causes more stress and frustration.
Whenever I experience an heightened level of frustration I do a couple of things:
1. Take a deep breath.
2. Identify the frustration . Ask yourself why you are feeling the way you are at that point in time.
3. Make a mental note of those feelings or emotions and reflect on them at a later point in time.
4. Change the topic or alternatively do your best to conclude the conversation as soon as possible.
5. When something really upsets me, I deliberately choose to talk to the person at a later point and then do my best to resolve the situation.
I apologize once again for any inconvenience during this transition period. I look forward to getting your feedback and suggestions on what you would like to be included in the new blog design and what your initial impressions are. Thanks
