Reboot. It happens.
You have a favourite TV show, they do a reboot. Sometimes it works well (Battlestar Galactica), and sometimes the reboot is a disaster (Terminator Genysis). I’m sure we all have examples in the world of entertainment where we have examples of reboots that worked, and those that did not.
Life can be that way sometimes. Things can change. Our lives can be rebooted without our consent and we have to roll with it. Sometimes we choose to hit that reset button and kick off a reboot.
We have power to choose in our lives. We are all flawed, imperfect beings. Perfection is a lie, it simply does not exist. Mistakes happen, we learn from them. Sometimes we reset and reboot. Sometimes we carry on the same path.
Think of it like this – if we, as a species, did not make mistakes, we would not collectively advance as quickly. So much of our “discoveries” or knowledge is found by accident. This happens through mistakes, we discover something new unintentionally, when we were looking for something else. Sometimes mistakes can be a good thing, and that message we hear a lot learn from your mistakes, can be a positive.
Sometimes we have to try a reboot in life. Sometimes it’s a choice we make for ourselves. Often it can be life presenting circumstances that require a change. As with films and TV, there’s many different forms of reboots. Sometimes a reboot is a complete relaunch ignoring most things that have come before. And sometimes TV and films go for just a soft reboot weddings are relaunched with significant changes, but following on from the past by acknowledging what brought them to this place originally.
Right now I’m looking at a soft reboot myself. The situation is changing for me and I do have a plan in place. The board is set I’m getting ready to move forward with my reboot. But lately people have been telling me how they think I should be living based upon their own opinion. That doesn’t work for me, it’s my life my why.
This won’t be my last reboot, because life is a gradual series of revelations that often don’t make sense at all. Life doesn’t make narrative sense.
I’m going to end with a quote from Terminator 2: “No fate but what we make for ourselves.”
