I find that WordPress, Twitter and sometimes Tumblr are better places to be than Facebook. I don’t know what it is but I think Facebook can bring someone down. Sure there are tons of pet videos but that can’t be the only thing keeping someone there. Blogging seems to be a more open social environment for better discussion. I would so love to log out of Facebook but it keeps people coming back because of the connections you have there. Not everyone blogs so that is a problem. Maybe I just need to logout of Facebook for awhile. I would much rather blog, Tweet and Instagram anyway.
I seem to have a problem chilling out. My brain runs constantly and I have a hard time relaxing. Maybe its a matter of overthinking stuff and trying to over analyzing things. Really I don’t know how to rest or give myself permission to rest. I feel like my “on switch” is always on. One day I hope I can find the right way to relax and give myself a break. At the end of a long day sometimes all I wanna do is go home and rest but it doesn’t seem like I do a good job of it. I also need to sleep better at night and I know that will help a lot of other things. Rest ye who are heavy laden or something like that.
I think believers of all faiths should be the vanguards of hope in the world. Sometimes we let the bad stuff of the world get to us and we reflect that in our attitudes about things. We are urging on the end of days when we should be urging people to find their way into a relationship with a higher power that will change them so they can change the world for the better. I certainly think believers need to smile more.
How far would you go to help someone? Across town, across the country, across the world? Some folks will go to another country to lend aid and comfort but won’t go across town when its needed.
So the question is How far would you go to help a friend, a neighbor, a stranger, your community.
We survived some nasty storms that came through the area yesterday afternoon and evening. This line of storms carried some nasty winds and rain with loads of lightning and thunder. After the storm is a time see what it did to ones property and the surrounding area. Some places had tornadoes while others just high winds that does its own sort of damage. The funny thing is that it rained hard but there wasn’t a lot of standing water this morning in our yard. Perhaps we needed the rain more than we thought. We lost power overnight but we got it back around 6 AM this morning which was good. Needless to say we are glad we made it though.
Life’s storms come and go but after each event we can evaluate how we coped and what we need to do to survive the next event. There is a metaphor there I believe.
