Today I went to open my little mac book to do some work, admin, reply to emails, write a health blog I have been meaning to do all week after my triathlete success…
But it wouldn’t turn on. And a little sign came on with a plug and a red battery… Reconnect and recharge it implied. I did as I was told.
I laughed a little too. I have felt for the last 10 days that my battery has been fully drained too. Sometimes you can top it up from half used… a good meal, a good bout of fresh air, a good rest, a good form of exercise. But sometimes, it is good to let the battery run completely low and down… switch off. And reboot.
I thought the triathlon coupled with too much social and work had totally wiped me out. And I thought I had drained my batteries to an all time low. So last week I was kind to myself. I unplugged and let myself drain out before rebooting.
But what happens when you try to reboot and there is no green light? No hint of ‘go!’.
A bit like my laptop…run diagnostics.
A bit like my laptop… new software installation required.
A bit like my laptop… patience.
