My personal email inbox was bursting at the seams. It could be a looooong process clearing it out. It could take all day or days. Maybe even weeks, months, or a year or two. Help! I’m drowning in a sea of electronic paper!
Unless…DELETE ALL! Do I dare? I could. Yes I could. My finger hovered over that delete button. Just one little click of the key and my big fat inbox holding 1796 emails could be eliminated just like that! Shrunk down to its original size. Is there a key on our bodies for that purpose that I don’t know about? Who else has an inbox that is so out of control? I know I can’t be the only one!
But what if? That is always the question that arises as I hold my finger over that delete button. What if – I have some pictures from my kids of the grandchildren? What if – I have a password for something very important stored in one of the emails? What if – there is a receipt I might need? What if – there is an authentic – YOU HAVE JUST BEEN SELECTED TO RECEIVE $10,000.00. PLEASE REPLY! – email waiting for my response that I overlooked? The what if’s could go on and on until that inbox explodes.
Would I really be able to find anything in all this mess anyway? My time is more valuable! So…DELETE ALL!
My its nice to see a clean inbox. 🙂
Now where’s that email with the…….surely I filed that one! 😦
