Impatience is a curse!

I don't actually read all the subjects of all my e-mails. I click the box at the top and unclick certain boxes as I am going down the page. Then I click on delete. Luckily, it was the last one on the page so I noticed it. The one that was from Helium that a partner wanted to buy an article. So I sent an e-mail asking them to re-send it. That's when I looked in the trash file, which always says empty. It was there. Guess what. It was for complete copyright rights and I went and put it somewhere else yesterday! At least I feel better about all that tax writing I was doing. It was starting to wear on me! Time to check the trash for anything else important!

What article was it? Was it a market place article? Do not worry. Oppurtunities will come even later . Every mistake we make, teaches us a lesson. I have made many mistakes like you. When you mentioned 60$, I thought of a 60$ mistake I made about 5 years ago. A 60$ taxi bill which I threw in the trash with out asking my husband.He kept on the table to reimburse that money from the office which I did not know. So impatience is really a curse.

It was a market place article on spousal IRA's. I was so tired of taxes and retirement, I decided to just give it up so I put the ones where the deadline had past onto hub pages. Of course, now they have me writing again for anonymous publisher! That $60 must have affected you to remember it after all this time!
