What have you lost recently?

Topic #161:

What have you lost recently? And what are you doing to try to get it back? Or are you now surprised to be glad you lost it?

Bonus: It could be something emotional, psychological or personal, not just a physical object. Maybe you’ve lost your courage, or your fear.

  3. I lost my job. I wish I could say I’m happy about it, because in some ways I am – it wasn’t the right position for me – but my insurance benefits will run out in August. What I am going to do about it is look for another job, although probably not in teaching, which is what I’ve been doing for the last eight years. I would like to “reinvent” myself or “pursue other opportunities” but the truth is I will probably have to find a retail job or something, just to get the benefits. My reinvention and seeking more interesting opportunities will have to come later.

  4. I lost my cousin, he was an orphan and we were related through my mums. And after his death, he was denied a proper burial cos According to tradition, you must be buried in your father’s place. We brought him up and he never knew his fathers people so dey just dug a pit and dumped his body without a casket.

  5. I have lost a lot of stress by learning a few new tips for managing large projects and recurring everyday tasks. I have finally learned to admit to myself that I really can only do one thing at a time. By focusing on that one and not the “fifty-seven” other things I need to do, what do you know, the one gets done–and without the stress! One step at a time… 🙂

  7. When you lose something, that you want to recover, or find, or just get back, you
    should “pray” to the Saint “Anthony”, he is the patron of the lost…..and I do that
    sometimes, yet I have recently lost something that I never want back….the disrespect of my close relatives….I miss them, but not the lack of respect….and
    if it means being without them, to live without the disrespect then , so be….People, especially your loved ones…should remember what they have been
    taught, and live what they know is right….that’s all!

  9. I have lost my popularity in a local election.I was one of the most popular man in my loving village because of my fight against corruption but I have lost my popularity because of lack of black money to spend in the election process here in Bangladesh & I have lost that election.I think still I am popular but as a Chairman candidate in the last UP Election on March 29,2011, I should have to spend lot of money to win the election,then it was possible to win the election but after the election I have be a corrupted man to recover that money.Thus why I was not interested to spend money but I feel that may be you are popular but some times here in Bangladesh you need lot of money to keep you popularity in the election.

  10.

I think still I am popular but I should have to spend lot of money to win the election and after the election I must have to be a corrupted man to recover that money.Now I feel that because of state structure /election process you have to spend lot of money(except some case) as a candidate,even if you are popular.

  11. I’ve almost lost my patience and my heart (faith) recently.

    But fortunately, getting it back was more easier than it sounds. You just need to lose your expectation and that calculative self-scrutinizing mentality first.

    Then, think about what you want to do again and how others will benefit from it.

    Patience and heart naturally was back in place again without me realizing it.

  12. I lost $10 playing slots recently at the casino, but it is really funny that this is the first thing that comes to mind since I also recently lost my very well paying job as a marketing communications manager. See the problem is the bullshit to benefit ratio was out of synch and the bullshit was definitely outweighing the benefit. Interestingly, I’m not really in a position to gamble away $10 or to have lost my job, but I have a deep faith that something more positive is on the horizon for me. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t quit, I got “laid off” or maybe just screwed, but gauging by the bizarre three and a half years at this twisted microcosm of failed humanity, I think it was a blessing in disguise. No I’m not bitter, rather grateful, just not sure for what yet other than the Grateful Dead and my great life outside of work. Simply said, “I’m better being my own boss and it’s time to revisit that reality.” Busy figuring it out, stay tuned.
