I’m one of those people who has a tendency to leave his household computer turned on all of the time. I guess I think it takes too long to reboot every day, so I just leave it running. I’m reminded by my daughter, who is a technology facilitator, that it’s a really good idea to turn it off each day. Turns out, it needs a break much like we do. And if there are updates that need to take effect, that’s likely not to happen if the computer is not shut down. Not doing so leads to lagging, slow performance.
Much the same can be said about life in general. I am reminded by a good friend that I can start my day over any time I feel the need. If things aren’t going as I might have planned, there’s nothing preventing me from saying “I’m going to start my day over as of right now.” Such is necessary I have found when dealing with the things that life can throw at me. I don’t think I need to go to sleep and wake up all over again to start the day once again.
