I recommend a walk when you are fuming – My corrupted camera card

You probably read in an earlier post that my camera card was corrupted on one occasion and of all things, it contained behind the scenes of the photoshoot for my album <55:38:7>.

YES OF ALL THINGS, IT CONTAINED THE BEHIND THE SCENES OF MY PHOTOSHOOT!

I SCREAMED, I YELLED #3*1!@%, I KICKED MY CHAIR, I PULLED MY HAIR.

(1) I always recommend a walk when you are fuming.
I learnt something during my corporate days from this person I worked with. When he  had to deal with something ginormous, something that presented itself as a problem or like a “THAT’S IT” situation, or if he was about to explode, he would just hold everything in. (including his red face).

I sometimes have this Ally McBeal thing going on when I talk to people (the background music, babies dancing sorta thing), so I would look at the red angry face sitting across me, and imagine an on-coming eruption but in slow motion…. Three seconds of silence but of what feels like eternity follows..1..2..3…

Instead, he turns to me and say, “Okay, I’m going for a walk”, and he’s gone the next instant. Poof.

Everything changed when he came back. He was smiling, he was happy, and ladies and gentlmen, we have a solution.

(2) When life presents you with a nasty situation, there is always another way of looking at it, and I like to think there is something we can take away from it.
After  a brisk walk to the kitchen and back, the don’t try don’t know in me decided to look at all the damaged pictures to see if anything could be used at all. I clicked with super positivity (and a 1% whatever mentatlity) on one of those half disco colored, half grey thumbnails (guys who have had their pictures corrupted, you will know what i mean).

I laughed when the picture was enlarged. [A little sense of humor does help during such times :-) ] Not that bad afterall, it looked like kinda artsy. I clicked on more and soon I assembled a collection lol. Whadya think?

I love you people, rock on.

上次,很不幸的, 我的相机内存卡坏了。 结果,我们在拍<55:38:7>专辑照片时候拍下的幕后照片, 有些受到影响。

我又气又心痛,那些照片好珍贵呀!

那时候, 我想起我认识的一位朋友。 他在生气或承受压力的时候, 或者快要爆发的时候, 就会深呼吸, 然后跟我说,:“Ok, 我要去走走。”就这样,跑出去。 十五分钟后的他,不只气消了,还想到了解决方法。这,我觉得很有趣, 也很有用。

于是,我很有耐心的把所有受影响的照片一个一个打开来看看。有些看起来, 还蛮有艺术感的哈哈。 在这里和你分享!
