In an ever-changing world certainty is one of those things that gives one comfort and some peace. However, its the mystery of life that means certainty is not always what is best. Having a certain way of doing things can mean one doesn’t have to think, it just comes naturally through practice and tradition.
Our religion is something many can be certain about. Maybe its science or history or the arts. It’s always going to be there or so we hope. All of those things are subject to new information, trends, discovery and personal interpretation.
Sure it would be great to be certain about one’s income or who wins the big game or perhaps what the rules of life are but even all that is subject to forces outside our control. In our personal lives being certain to have the love of family in friends is reassuring.
I suppose the only thing to be certain about is change and we are all subject to that in our daily lives.
Nobody knows the future with certainty. We can, however, identify ongoing patterns of change.
I think Mr. Toffler is on to something. The future is not a lock but if we pay attention we can be ready for the change that will certainly come.
Certainty isn’t certain.
I am more of an old school blogger and less content creator. My writing is within the confines of creating a post of things I find sacred, serious and even silly. My posts are short and concise featuring writing, media and sometimes both. My goal is to be a good all-around blogger where I can connect with fellow bloggers and others.
I truly appreciate my blogging community.
Everyone has a problem creating blog posts every now and again. If this is you try writing shorter posts like a paragraph or two. Post a favorite picture, quote, meme, YouTube video or a six word story. Smaller posts can help you remove the block and makes it more fun to create. Try these ideas out and most importantly keep on blogging!
So many streams
So much Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and Amazon Prime
So many choices, so little time
So many things to see and experience
So many stories to be told
So be careful when you binge lest you get old
So much, too much to pick from
After a while, it isn’t so much fun.
The Internet is bending but will it break
Because of the powerful streams, people are enjoying
Make time for yourself. Your favorite characters will be there when you get back
All this streaming can inspire some dreaming
Hey can you bring me some popcorn and a beverage or two
Stream, stream, stream is all we wanna do.
Enjoy your Mandalorian and that Baby Yoda too.
All of it is streaming to you.
Yeah, there’s too much to watch.
So, today is my one week without Facebook anniversary. I have been just fine without it. Sure stuff is going on there I wonder about but in reality, I am learning that I just don’t need to know what is going on with everyone all the time. Avoiding drama is good for one’s mental health. As I wrote about earlier there is a Fear Of Missing Out but as you go along that fear is less and less.
Perhaps Facebook has told us that you can’t live without it but I know a few folks who are doing just that and many of them are fellow bloggers. Facebook can be a strong influence in terms of what is posted there. I am just glad there is one less thing to worry about. Let’s see how long this lasts, maybe it can be something long-term. We shall see.
Mark Zuckerberg I don’t need you telling me what to do! 🙂
Three doors up there’s opportunity for all.
Three doors up you are part of making a difference.
Three doors up your gender/sexually isn’t an issue.
Three doors up you aren’t discriminated against.
Three doors up your life’s calling is affirmed.
Three doors up the table is never too small.
Three doors up there is not a fence or a wall.
Three doors up you find comfort, peace, love and grace.
I am taking yet another Facebook break. I have discovered its hard to be yourself there and control who sees what you want to keep private. Yes, I know my blog is open for all to see but the one thing about my blog is that I pay for domain registration and the premium package through WordPress.com. It is important that I have total control over what I say, my content and even who sees these words.
My connections on Twitter and Instagram will not change. You can connect with both through the widgets on the right. Connect with me if you wish there.
