Emergency Post

Ever since I decided to write a blog 24-5, I realized that the pressure would be on. It's not that I didn't think I could come up with something to write about on a regular basis, but rather I wondered, "What would I do, when a given day didn't allow me the time to compose a blog?"

The answer to that dilemma was to write an "emergency post". This would be a blog entry that I would craft, only to hold back until it was really needed. It was to be a passionate commentary that I could post at a moments notice. An inspiring challenge that, when I had no time to write, could be shared with the world at the click of a button. "Publish Post!"

Life is filled with crazy twists and turns. At it's worst, life is unpredictable. At it's best, life is predictable...sometimes. Any day, emergencies can rise and priorities can shift, causing plans to change and routines to be broken. Stuff, simply happens.

However, I was determined not to be caught off guard by this reality of life. I set out a plan to pen some blogs, ahead of time, so that I would not be left unprepared for the inevitable. Today, the inevitable happened. Within an hour of waking up, my whole day was turned upside down. By the afternoon, I wasn't even in my own city anymore. Things moved at a whirlwind speed. There was simply no time to sit, reflect and compose a blog of worth. Next thing I knew, the day was over. It was midnight and I had written nothing for the morning. "Oh no! What to do?"

No worries! I would simply reach into the vault and pull out one of the many blogs stored up for such an occasion as this. Too bad I had never finished one. You see, despite my marvelous plan, I never did get around to writing an emergency blog. Why? Because, things came up...and I hadn't prepared for that.

So, today's entry is well...this.

Have a good one,
