Ctrl+Alt+Delete

So remember that day that Murphy’s law was in full effect? Everything was all planned out, you had the timing down to the second. And then….you know the rest. The blast radius of “Everything that can go wrong will go wrong” went from your house that morning as you spilled coffee on your pants that just came out the cleaners, to the all day meetings that always resulted in you doing more and everyone else waiting on you. The after effects included complete miscommunication between you and your spouse and the last thing you remember was asking “How are you today?”.

Life has its moments where you wish you could use your computer and three fingers and just Ctrl+Alt+Delete the situation and start over. Right when you know the testy conversation is about to turn into a heated one because you can’t seem to hold your tongue, this life enhancing feature would allow you the freedom to start over and try again. Free 99 while supplies last!

Okay, we can’t have this or life would never move forward. More people would spend time reliving a situation and undoing their mistakes than actually learning from them. As humans we are born to one day die and succeed from our failures. Without this dynamic, wisdom would not be necessary to pass on to the next generation, history would never repeat itself and you would never know just how strong and unique you are. So don’t get upset about what kind of day or week or month you have had, think of the lessons you’ve learned. Thomas Edison once said “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”. The ability to move forward in spite of situations is greater than any other freely given gift we have. Single mothers can raise a household of ten and love each one the same, men can go up and down with jobs and still find a reason to look for the next, parents can lose a child and still find the courage and strength to have another. So keep moving forward…..logging out.

Ladies Watch What YOU Say!

Now before you think this is going to be a bash session, let me help frame this post. So as most of us who grew up in a dysfunctional house, we were exposed to a lot of things. The house was thick like New Orleans gumbo but the ingredients were of emotional instability, drama, fighting, isolation, etc. But the conductor of this orchestra for many of us was a women. And when she has had enough, she became 20 feet tall and had a voice that would scare the heavens. As a man if you grew up in this environment it really prepared you for a lot of upcoming shout matches. The coach at football practice who’s never less than 80 decibel, the teacher who ruled with an iron voice or the girlfriend who’s been watching her mother shout for so long it’s now normal, even in regular conversation.

Ladies, the truth is that yelling never gets you really what you want in that moment. But what you don’t realize is the adverse effects this plays on the mind of a man. Your voice and words are very powerful and can derail a man faster than a bullet. Need proof? Ok, remember the movie John Q? Denzel Washington plays a father whose son needs a heart transplant. Things took a major turn when the wife says to Denzel “You need to do something!”. That was the most critical part of the movie. Her words put Denzel’s character into action, at all cost. Examples are all around us where women use their “God-like” voice. Incredible Hulk, Superman, you as the wife, girlfriend and mother. So ladies, I’m asking that you become mindful of what you are saying to your 10-year-old son, the 21-year-old college student and the father of your children. Your power was not meant to be used to demoralize us, it was meant to be used to help us reach our dreams.

So take time and ask yourself ladies, who have you mentally killed? Do you ever realize what you are saying? Even in the most heated arguments, you need to reflect on what was said and how it was said. Instead of choosing the easy route and talking negative in your girl time about all men, try to say something positive. When your friend comes around that can never keep a man, help her see that the problem may be the way she thinks and talks. If you have a well-oiled relationship spend more energy protecting it by not allowing outside influences to dictate you. Finding a problem is easy, but seeing the good is more important.
