::sings:: ….plug it in, plug it in!!!!!!
Ahem. So! I’ve been doing a lot more driving than I did in the past, so I put a bunch of books on tape and sermons onto my iPod. The other day, I was having trouble hearing one of the sermons. Defeated, I turned on the radio. *sigh* I considered buying a battery operated speaker set up.
I was setting off on a long drive and I thought, well, I can try and listen again…
“What’s this? Not all the way plugged in?!”
I noticed that the cord I used wasn’t fully plugged into my iPod. I plugged it all the way in, and viola! Sermons and books loud and clear!
I thought it was a great life lesson. Think about how many times you’ve complained/struggled/been annoyed with a situation and in the end, it was such an easy fix. If you just stopped and calmly assessed the situation. Sometimes the computer isn’t plugged in. Sometimes the fuse is blown.
Take the time today to take a step back and look at your struggle, you might find that you haven’t plugged it in.
