The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was hidden in the sky, and the world saw it high above while I looked on and just smiled at the rolling clouds.
Today was an interesting day for me. There was a storm rolling in and at the same time there were a variety of imaginary substorms. It may surprise you to know I was an early adopter of social media, or it may not. In the early days MUDS ran rampant and chat board consisted of short statements on very slow modems that came out on paper. There was fiery indignation by all, but mostly the people involved were computer geeks and over the top academics, so it was not Filled with the people it is now, nor the interesting interactions of today.
I have found I am not a consistent fan anymore. I have seen social media go through Friendster, Bebo, Myspace and a dozen others that few have heard of. There have been virtual worlds and virtual interactive communities. The Facebook became Facebook and AOL pretty much died a horrible death. Still, people interacted, people became more and more addicted. About 5 years ago I slowed down on social media, just because. It was stale and I had other things to do, things in the real world.
About a year ago I started getting involved again. For nearly 5 years I have posted a link to here each night, but I started interacting again, being involved a little, testing the waters. I have found there are a lot of things the same, and a lot different. There seems to be more defiance, more outspoken opinion, more stress. I have not decided if I will slow down again, but I have decided I will take the positive path where so many others embrace the negative. I have always tried to do so, but sometimes the dark side is just to appealing, too over the top.
As I do, I will defiantly say have a good day, and look for the good positives in each day, and not get lost in the mire and quicksand I see. With that in mind I sit here in peace, and will go work for a while, having fun as I can, and spreading a laugh or two along the way.
So what? Well, I am just going to suggest you do the same. It is only a suggestion and you can go your own way, but it is far too easy to blast out opinions when there are positive places to go. After all, the positives in life can be found if you look for them, and the positives are a way to remove the negatives without all the other stuff that gets knocked around all the time. It is just a suggestion, but I find I feel a lot better being positive, then being any other way. Your choice.
So as the sun sets on another day, the bear and the rabbit are in the woods again, and we really need to laugh at them and with them, and smile a little along the way. I am certainly going to try, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love rampantly, and laugh a lot while you can…
