Worry: The Ridiculous Duplicate

For the last several weeks, my email has been wack-a-doo. Every once in a while, for no particular reason, it will duplicate or triplicate all my emails.

So yes, goes something like this … I open my email and under ‘mail activity’ it says, ‘incoming messages: 671 of 671 …’ or some sort of nonsense. And then I watch in amazement as I get a gajillion copies of email I’ve already opened. Eek.

I called Bluehost. Talked with the Mac guys. No one has any answers. (If you do, I’m all ears … please.)

Now, the thing is: I’m utterly logical about these ridiculous, duplicate messages. When I realize that I’ve already read and responded to an email, I simply delete the duplicate. No time for that nonsense.

The crazy thing is that I’m not so utterly logical about duplicate nonsense in my thought life. Take worry, for instance. Worry sends me all kinds of duplicate messages all day long. Over and over … I’ll get the same message. And what do I do? I diligently open each message, read it top to bottom, and then save it for future reference. Talk about wack-a-doo.

Worry – to torment oneself with or suffer from disturbing thoughts; fret.

Apparently the torment I get from my inbox is not sufficient … but I am going to work on it. I’ll be thinking on this and hopefully working worry right out of a job.
