Due to unforseen circumstances, I have found myself cleaning up my computer. ITunes rebelled, wiped my Ipod and it is taking forever to fix the problems. Needless to say, when I get to fixing things or cleaning I can see ALL the dusty places that I knew needed some work, but kept putting off. So I find myself scanning and deleting and looking for all the nasty computer viruses that may or may not be present. It has got me to thinking, wouldn’t it be wonderful if my brain operated like my computer, or better actually. If I could do a scan and get rid of malicious threats aka negative thoughts. Or maybe a could just pop the infections (aka self doubt, over analysis) into quarantine. Well at least until I figure out if they are actually destructive or protective. Oh and I would love to be able to download updates for my brain too. That way I could intrinsically know stuff without having to go through the painful experience of learning. But at the same time I shudder to think of all the hackers out there working to install into my brain all the nasties computers get. Actually, it probably isn’t that different from what the advertising industry does already. Except at least they can’t actually connect to my brain and I’m the one in charge instead of a crazy user who randomly installs, uninstalls and scans without being sure of what they are doing.
Anyway, while on the support forums, I found this quote:
“The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.”
I’m not sure what to make of that thought. The message does sound familiar, but it definitely shouldn’t be. Any ideas?
