My Palm reset button is parallel with life. When things lock up, you may have to shut it down and start it up again. Attached is a document that will allow you to physically press reset in your life when you feel the need. You can print it and post it where it will serve most valuable. You can hang it in your bedroom and press reset before you lay down at night. You may need to put it at your front door so you can press it as you leave in the morning, in hopes that things will be different when you return. Mine is posted at my work office and I press the button each day before heading home. By doing that I’m closing the chapter on another day at work (whether it’s been good or bad). Sometimes I even have my students press it after a venting session.
Our bodies have an automated shutdown and recharge system. It’s called sleep. We fight it, but our bodies know when it’s time to power off and recharge. We must be able to recognize the times in our lives that we need to take a step back and try it again. Don’t be afraid to start it over and give it another try. Every now and then we need a second time around to get it right.
