Ctrl-Alt-Del

You probably know the best way to get out of PC trouble - the Ctrl-Alt-Del buttons. And that may also be true with our lives. I have made a simple analogy.

CONTROL

We have no control over many things but we can always take charge of our actions and attitude. Don’t let anybody choose that for us. 

I ‘ve read an article about Jerry.  Each morning upon waking up, he'd say the following lines: 
"Each morning I wake up and say to myself, Jerry, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood.' I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life."
A very good attitude. Hope we can always do the same. I agree with Maya Angelou. She stated  : "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude." And let us be reminded, control is taking responsibility.

ALTERNATIVE 
According to Helen Keller “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” I believe it’s true. Thus, we should be grateful for new doors, new opportunities or new alternatives.
“If plan A didn’t work, the alphabet has 25 more letters.” So, we have to keep on going. 

DELETE
Sometimes we make a lot of mistakes. We mess things up. And that is okay. Thank God, we  have that option to ‘delete’ some ‘bad files’ and  then create a new one. Just be aware of the lessons.

I remember the story shared by Jim Rohn:  One day a man was nursing a glass of wine (for the nth time) and thought to himself, 'What if I wasn't an alcoholic? What if I wasn't an absent father all these years? What if I cared more for the people I love instead of caring for my alcohol needs?" And just like that he stopped drinking and started living.   Like that man, we can decide to delete the errors and make that change today.

We do have a choice! Let us remember to Ctrl-Alt-Del our lives!

I have introspection similar to this. Some days, I wish there is Undo function in real life like the one in the computer. But then I know, things happen for a reason. This is a good post!

life should be choose between two things: bad or good. I agree with that. and to get it, we have 26 choices like you said 26 alphabet plus 10 number and also more marks...
LOL.... It's true.... C+A+D. the three ways you said is a good thing. by A we have something to choice. by D we can eliminated something bad.
this good advice....

Ric said...

Yes, littleyana, if we have only that option to undo something but we can't..We can only learn something from it.
