“Me, I’m from the Apple, which means I’m a Mac”-Jay Z, “Venus vs. Mars”
With the recent addition of a MacBook to my possessions, I am officially Mac’d out. From my classic ipod (many years ago) to the recent MacBook,
I have become a prisoner of Apple I own most Apple products (sidenote: not sold on the purpose or reported ease of Apple TV…if you want to convince me, feel free to do so in the comments section).
The other day, while completing a necessary update, a warning message popped up, which read: “For best results, plug into power source…” I quickly grabbed the white power adapter and searched for the nearest wall socket, adhering to mandatory suggestion, concerned that the update will fail if solely dependent on the battery power.
For the last few days that warning box and its message has stuck with me, which led me to realize that it is applicable to goals other than updating a Mac system. I then began to think about my power sources, the places from which I can recharge and reboot when necessary to ensure the best me, especially when I am running low because of anxiety, frustration, or other debilitating thoughts or feelings.
My power source comprise a short list: my relationship with God and myself, family (not all related by blood), basketball, and writing.
What is (are) your power source(s)?
