How a Password Changed my Life

A true story from the Reader’s Digest

I was having a great morning until I sat down in front of my office computer “your password has expired” a server message flashed on my screen, with instructions for changing it. 
Coming up with a new code doesn’t seem like a big deal, unless you work at my company, where we have to change it monthly, using at least one uppercase character, one lower case character, one symbol and one number. Oh and the password can’t be fewer than eight characters. And I can’t use any of the same passwords I’ve used in the past three months.

Suddenly I was furious, what didn’t make it any better was that I was deeply depressed after my recent divorce. Disbelief over what she had done to me was what I thought all day.

That didn’t mean anything to the empty field with the pulsating cursor, waiting for me to type a password that I have to reenter many times – for the next 30 days. I remembered a tip I’d heard from my former boss. He’d said

I couldn’t focus on getting things done in my current mood. There were clear indications that I needed to regain control over my life, but I couldn’t heed them. My password became the indicator. My password reminded me that I shouldn’t let myself be a victim of my recent breakup and that I was strong enough to do something about it.

I made my password – Forgive@h3r , I had to type this password several times every day each time my computer would lock. Each time I came back from lunch I wrote forgive her. The simple action changed the way I looked at my ex-wife. That constant reminder of reconciliation led me to accept the way things happened and helped me deal with my depression. As one month wore on, I felt a slow healing began to take place. By the time the server prompted me to change my password following month, I felt free.

The next time I had to change my password I thought about the next thing that I had to get done. My password became Quit@smoking4ever .

It motivated me to follow my goal and I was able to quit smoking.

One month later, my password became Save4trip@thiland, and in three months I was able to visit Thailand.

Seeing how reminders helped me materialize my goals kept me motivated and excited. While it is sometimes difficult to come up with your next goal, keeping at it brings great results.

After a few months, my password was Save4@ring !!! Life is going to change again.

Impermanence

                              Image result for positive and negative space

When somebody tells me that he or she has failed in their academic exams, my question is,
"Is it a law that you will pass every time?"

 When someone tells me that my boyfriend/girlfriend broke up with me, my question is,
"Is it a rule that you will have successful relationships everywhere?"

 When somebody asks me why am I feeling depressed, my question is,
"Is it compulsory to have confidence all the time?"

 When someone cries to me about their huge business loss due to a wrong decision, my question is,
"Is it possible that you take all right decisions?"

 The fact is, our expectation that life has to be perfect/permanent is the biggest reason of our unhappiness.

One has to understand the law of impermanence of nature.

 After each sunny day, there has to be a dark night, after each birth there have to be certain deaths, for the full moon to come again it has to pass through no moon. In this imperfection of nature, there is perfection.

 So stop taking your failures and bad part of your life so personally or intensely, even God does not like to give you pain but it is the cycle through which you have to pass. Prepare yourself for one more fight after each fall because even failures cannot be permanent...!
