If you owned a gaming system when you were a child, you more than likely remember that there were normally two main buttons on the console. There was the obvious power button to power the game on, and then there was the reset button. Remember playing a certain game and reaching to a stage that you probably had a hard time beating? Remember when you allowed that level of frustration you would feel begin to set in, and what did most of us do? Yep, we hit that reset button more than likely. I know that's something that I done a lot of back in the day.
I don't play video games much these days, but I'm sure most of the systems now still have reset buttons. So how does nostalgic video game consoles of the past relate to this post? Sometimes there are things that happen in life that may cause us to feel helpless and hopeless. Depending on the individual, troubling circumstances can lead to unhealthy things such as stress and depression - which are bad attributes that can heighten the level of despair a person can feel. Although it's not healthy, I think it's normal at times for people to feel that it's too late to change their lives for the better. You know - having that feeling that you're at the end of your rope. However, regardless what others may say, I feel that it's never too late to hit that reset button on life.
Welcome to another 'Brad H's. Perspective' blog posting. As I mentioned in the previous paragraph, I think it's never too late to hit the reset button on our lives. I've been thinking about this a lot as of late. I've also been thinking about some lyrics from one of my favorite artists named K-Rino. K-Rino has a song on one of his albums called 'Everyday'. In the song, he mentions that as long as we're breathing we always got another change to make things right. Wise words by him in my opinion, and a way of thinking that we should strive for.
It is indeed true that a single moment - for better or worse, can have a lasting effect on a person's life. However, one moment doesn't have to be the determining factor in how we decide to carry on with our lives. For example, we've all made mistakes, and the majority of us have made questionable decisions in our pasts. It can be a normal occurrence if memories of mistakes and bad decisions from the past enter our minds from time to time. In some ways it's probably a good thing that those memories come. Reliving mistakes from the past can keep us from making those mistakes again in the future. That is of course if they come sporadically, and don't become time consuming.
But, do we allow those previous mistakes to keep us from moving forward? Some people do, but the majority of us don't. We adjust and make those decisions that help us to keep moving forward in our lives. Just because today, yesterday, or even days of the past weren't always the best doesn't mean that it's too late to change for the better. I think it's important that we view everyday that we wake up as an opportunity to reset and start anew.
Well that's it for this edition of 'Brad H's. Perspective'. Thanks for stopping through as always. Just to recap real quick; there's always a chance to change as long as there is breath in your lungs. Don't ever let anyone think you can't change for the better. If things aren't going all that great, take it for what it is, and just hit that reset button on your life. A new day is always a new chance to get better. See you all in the next one. Peace!
