I usually run through my Google News feed a dozen or so times a day, mostly reading the latest news in science, technology, health and psychology. Also in an attempt to stay current on politics, world events and pop culture. Except I’m getting burnt out on the fact that the majority of the titles are so negative and paint the world into a big giant shit-show of greed, war and abuse and I can only handle so much of that viewpoint.
If it weren’t for my absolute certainty that the world holds its balance in good and evil I would have easily succumb to bitterness and anger by now because what you see, the spin the media puts out there is so negative (mostly). It sells. I get it. That’s what they do. That’s how they survive. It’s not a public service. It’s a business. I think everyone pretty much gets that now. Right?
But I want to focus on the good in life. I want to focus on what I can bring to the world. I want to focus on the things I can change. The miracles and magic that is available to us mortal primates. This life is intriguing…..and where I take my mind should be my own doing. I say should because sometimes it seems a fight to think my own thoughts, my own way. A fight that I think is well worth the energy involved to sustain though… to perserve my heart and my own identity in a world that seems determined to squelch it into a square peg.
Instead of my news feed I think I’ll go back to my WordPress feed; except I don’t follow enough people is the thing and it’s become harder to follow the people that follow the people I follow, who seem to have the same interests and interesting lifestyles. But I’d rather invest my energy into real people and real interactions than keep being “socially relevant”. Fuck it. Who am I kidding? I’m not trying to impress anyone.
I’m out to be me. That’s my goal here and to reach my core being and my connection to soul and stare deep into the abyss of eternity as it stares back at me with a depth of knowledge and being that I can only get passing wisps of. So yeah. I’ll be much less informed…… but that’s alright. I’m not up for a Nobel prize or a stand-by stint on Jeopardy. Who are we kidding here?
I’m just trying to be happy and figuring out what doesn’t make me happy is a crucial part of that piece. So sayonara Google News feed. Arrivederci. Adios. Good riddance. I’ll be a bit worse at small talk now, but I never was that good at it to begin with. 🤣😝
Happy Monday!! 🌈🙏🏽💖🌊💖💋
