Someone changed my default browser. I’m usually pretty adaptable, but I have to tell you – this has thrown my game off a bit this week. This new browser doesn’t know me and, therefore, doesn’t know my passwords. Of course, I don’t know my passwords either – because my other browser knows them for me.
And no, I haven’t changed it back. It’s bugging me but I haven’t done anything about it. Certainly I’m technical enough to make the switch. The thing is, I don’t know why it was changed. Of course, I also keep forgetting to ask because it’s only on my mind when I click on a link from an email…. I also haven’t decided to adapt to the change.
I bring this up because it got me thinking about change and adaptability. Sometimes there are little things we have complete control over that we let get under our skin. We spend time irritated with the disruption and maybe with the person we see as the cause of the change and yet take no action to relieve our own discomfort.
So I’m going to change the browser back to what it was (family, you’ve been warned) and I’m also going to pay attention to see if there are other things in my life that I’m treating this way. What else is bothering me that I could do something about and haven’t? Where am I unnecessarily seeing myself as a victim?
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a computer setting to change.
