Authorizing Update Part One

Authorizing Update         

Installing Update

Copying New Files

XYZ is calling for an update – click to continue


We’ve all seen them.

Those annoying pop ups when we’re trying to

update our computer to a higher level.


We know that their purpose is to be a failsafe so that we

Don’t do or undo something we will regret later.


Some things are un-doable.  Undo is often our friend.

Some things are not.  Some things require an Administrators touch.


There are times that a program on our computer tells us that an update is available for a

program we are running.


If it is a program we run frequently, we will take the update.

If the program is one we don’t use or are unfamiliar with,

 we will ignore it.


We see different pop ups when we accept the update.

Once we authorize our update, it will be installed.


After installation, we are queried again

 – copy new files – then one more warning, 

XYZ is calling for an update, click to continue.


If we click, then we are instructed to wait while these files are being

copied and update is being applied, this may take a moment or this may

take a while it will say, depending on the update.


I am not a “Techy”.  I learn by doing.   By putzing around.

Clicking here and  clicking there.

Sometimes this brings great results.

Other times it brings on disaster!


I have found this to be true, not only with my computer,

But I found this to be true with my life as well.

Maybe you have seen it in your life too.


You are just cruising along.

Everything is going well.

You are content.

You are comfortable.


Then, out of nowhere,

You receive the message that there is an update available.

The upgrade is easy to take if it is already on your screen.

It is easy to take if it is something you are already involved in.


For instance, you might be a blogger, and this great new update is

introduced that will make your blog look more colorful or focused. 

It’s as simple as clicking a few keys and your update appears.

Your blog looks great.  Your putzing has been successful.

Yay for updates!




You are just cruising along.

Everything is going well.

You are content.

You are comfortable.


Then, out of nowhere,

Comes an opportunity so far off your radar,

That it obscures your vision and sends you for a loop.


All you can think is that this is not what you signed up for.

This is not what you studied for.

This is a totally different from the forte you are comfortable with.


For instance, you may have wanted to blog about home repairs.

You dreamed, you read, and you studied.

You set your blog up to welcome any one who would like to learn to

Repair their homes themselves.

It is going well.  Everything is running smoothly.


Then you realize that on your blog you spend a great deal of time

encouraging your readers.  You let them know that the choices they

make are their own, and yes, those choices are personal, and good.

You may find that you enjoy giving encouragement far more than

teaching home repair.


What do you do with this?

13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
