In response to one-word prompt : Restart
My Stubborn Computer
Each time my computer gives me trouble,
I promptly restart it and work on the double.
There are days when this practice bothers me so,
I choose to shut it off and let myself go!

My stubborn Feline
I often wonder how to discipline my stubborn feline
He climbs up on the window sill when he wants to whine
Come down I say out loud
He ignores me without a doubt
I warn I’d drench him if he’s not a good feline!
Think about something that drives you crazy. Now, think about something that makes you happy. Does it change your perspective on the former?
Albert Einstein said, “You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it.”
I know Albert Einstein wanted us to change how we felt when we had the problem.My question is what if the problem still exists and I’m the only one who is prepared to change, What then, how can it be solved?
To understand ourselves, others, the world around me, I can change, what about the others if they are stubborn and hold on to the grudge, how is my change going to help the situation?
There are things that make me happy e.g, kind friends who are ever ready to help in any circumstance.
It is completely different from the former, in the former I have someone who is always ready to stab me in the back regardless of how much energy I expend to smooth out things. It is clearly a very different scenario, it does not give me any hope that changing my perspective will make me happy!
I can be as stubborn as grass stain or as easy going as a light breeze. It depends entirely on the circumstances. If my feelings are hurt by someone close to me, I make sure they remember how they hurt me. I show how stubborn I can be because I don’t want a repetition of what they did to me.
Let me explain how and why I show my stubborn nature. I was newly married when I first came to Montreal . One day I asked my husband if we could go and watch a movie, his reply was ,”Go with my brother”, I was unhappy with this reply, it was totally unexpected.
My reply to this was,”I didn’t marry your brother, I married you.”
He couldn’t reply and kept quiet. After that incidence I did not ask to go to a movie anymore not only that when he asked me I declined.
