Sometimes it just has to be personal...

Today has been quite a day.  It started with me getting up early for a photo shoot that I would be traveling an hour or more to get to - which is not a problem, except that the client sent an email to me about 45 mins before the shoot time to cancel.  Not a phone call - an email.  Fortunately I had decided to even check my email for some reason, because normally I wouldn't have checked it until much later on - but by then I was 3 miles from my destination.  Honestly, I was a bit put-off by the way it was handled - and felt very disrespected.  But no biggie - I can definitely deal with disappointment or aggravations, and I am a firm believer that I DO choose my reactions... so I decided to react by just enjoying my day regardless.  And it has been a good day.  I was able to spend some time getting some other things done that I've not had time to do lately - and then I even got to have lunch with my daughter.  What a treat!  Anyway... my question is this - what is the appropriate way to handle such things, because I am somehow sure this won't be the last time something like this happens to me!  This is where I wish this were more of an open conversation than a blog - so that I could get feedback from whoever is reading this... but I trust that if you have an opinion you will somehow let me know. 

You know, blogging is quite a strange thing... deciding whether to just randomly write (which, believe me, random is my specialty! I can definitely be an airhead!) about whatever comes to my mind - or do I choose a topic, which somehow seems too planned and organized for my liking.  So, I guess we will stick to random for now.  If you ever read something and think "I wonder what she would say about .....?" then i do hope you would send me a message and give me the opportunity to consider your thoughts!

I hope your afternoon is going well!
