The keyboard of life - which are your key moments?Working at your desktop or at your laptop or on your cell phone, have you ever wondered about all those keys on the keyboard vis-a-vis life? Have you seen any analogy between the keys and your experiences, perhaps your feelings or emotions?
The arrow keys - these are directional keys, helping you move up, down or side ways on a page. We have these literally on sign boards to indicate where we need to go. Figuratively, in life we take certain directions. We move upwards when, say, we get a promotion. We move downwards when we face a setback and need to start again. We may take a side step to think over things before dealing with something.
The backspace key - we hit this to erase what we just typed, perhaps because we found a spelling error or we wish to rephrase the word or maybe the entire sentence. In life, we cannot erase something we did. Maybe, though, we can use a backspace key in our memories to remove negative thoughts and perhaps even bad memories, wanting to retain only the good ones.
The asterisk symbol - while in writing it is used as a footnote reference or to indicate an omission, some people also use it as a symbol to mark a point. I like its design as it resembles a star and I love stars. So one can mentally think of an asterisk when there is a special moment in one's life and isn't it nice to have many such asterisks popping up in our brain every now and then?! It also reminds me of Asterix, one of my favourite comics!
So is there a key on the keyboard about which you could draw an analogy to actual life? Share your unique thoughts in this thread.
