My mum used to say "there are times when you just need to 'Let Go and Let God'" This seems to be one of those times. I had pre-determined that I would be taking a small group to
this spring. All seemed to be set and I was looking forward to getting to Scotland to do my own research, but also to show the group just how much information can be found in the archives in Scotland. I love Scotland and was also looking forward to introducing the group to my homeland. It always seems better to visit a new country if you are with someone who knows about it and can share the "off the beaten path" sights and information. Scotland
Then, just as I thought all was going ahead, I had three people cancel. I certainly understand that life gets in the way. So, I scrambled to fill the now open spots. Extra lectures, webinars, advertising, articles, workshops, mailings and discounts. No takers. I could be frantic. But what good would that do? My week hasn't gone well. I was so distracted yesterday morning, that I drove off and forgot to pay for the gas I had just pumped! That's when I realized I needed to "Let Go and Let God" I need to step back, take a deep breath, cut my losses and look forward to the possibilities.
We will be a very small, very intimate group. It will have a very different feel. But I am interested to see what this trip has to offer and can only hope that it all works out. After all, I fly out three weeks today!
