Thought Of The Day

I have been posting stuff online for years. I have also been reading stuff online for the same amount of time. As a blogger, I strive to keep my posts about the reality of life and about the world I live in. Sometimes the reality of that world can be tough and sometimes toxic. We cannot deny we live in a place where there is lots of turmoil and that can color how we see things and express ourselves. Being positive in a negative place is very difficult but we have to figure out how to make that happen.

Today a blogging friend shared her concerns with how toxic Twitter can be and considering its the choice expression platform of people who can’t seem to censor themselves I can understand her concerns.

How do we return some light and levity to our conversations? I am trying to figure that out without sounding like a goody-two-shoes (which I am more times than not). All I can say is think twice, post once and make what you say matter. Be careful, the person you might hurt in a post might be yourself.

Thought Of The Day

Getting older doesn’t scare me at the moment but aging does. I turned 50 in August and I don’t want to not relate to others from all ages and walks of life. At some point I am going to need to be a grown-up but now is not that time.
