Re-writing Existing Operating Programs

So, my computer crashed, hard.  Not to worry, I can reverse inherit the laptop I bought for my daughter.  She is in film school, and tuition included a new MacBookPro.  So, no problem I can have my data transferred and I will be up and running in no time, right?  Problem, the operating system of this particular computer will not support the programs that I wanted to use.  GAH!  Now what!? Spend a bunch of money for a newer computer when this one is fine, it is just what Apple calls “Vintage”….It is a 2008…VINTAGE?? I decided to just make do with this wonderful, functional, albeit vintage computer.  With some work arounds and the good ol’ internet we will be just fine for now.  So, this got me thinking about other kinds of “operating systems” like the ones that run in our minds that tell us how strong we are, or not.  About how organized we are, or smart, or professional, or whatever…I am a strength geek, so I mostly thought about it in terms of the way a person expects their physical body to be.  To operate.  It occurs to me that in this time of “bio hacking” when I for one have realized that it IS possible to re-write, or over-write the program that says “I am overweight”, “I am in pain” “I wish I were in better shape”.  Re-write it to say “I am stronger with every practice session”, “I move freely and with strength and purpose”, ” I feel great”, “I am happy!” “I am strong”  Unlike my computer, your body has unlimited ability to upgrade and update your operating system.  You can choose to learn the skills of strength.  I hope so if you want it.  Re-writing our bodies’ operating systems can only be done one step at a time, one skill at a time.  Keep learning and keep swinging
