Any Last Words?

If you had a choice, which words would you chose to be your last?

We sometimes wonder how and when we will go when it’s our time. And we know we wouldn’t want to say something awful to a loved one or leave an argument unresolved. Will we have to forethought to say something dramatic and important at that last moment??

Probably not, but it’s fun to think about.

Epic Fail

Alright! I gave up on my New Year’s Resolution only 2 months in. I’m also still learning how to embed photos into this thing…..I digress as usual…..

Life gets hectic! Ok, I have renewed my resolution as of today; make a positive post everyday for my faithful followers on WordPress. (I think I’m up to two now). Thank you for your patronage!

Carpe Diem!

Freedom from Facebook

Finally freed myself from the confines of Facebook. I know I’m not the first to come to this revelation. It was fun while it lasted, but when you crave substance over daily cute kitty photos, it’s time to move on.

Sure, it’s great for connecting with friends you haven’t seen since third grade, but how real is the relationship if…you haven’t seen them since third grade? I don’t need to see what ex-boyfriends are up to, or listen to the rants and raves of former co-workers, or have a social networking site asking me if I like Walmart. I’m not just a consumer! I’m a person! Consumption is not my only lot in life. Enough with the cartoons that cleverly state how I feel on a Monday morning. It’s like all the bumper stickers you’ve peeled off your first car have come back to haunt you!

I guess what bothers me the most is that these social networking sites feed into our current “all about me” culture and it’s really not healthy. We should be out actually experiencing life, not just looking at pictures of it or forwarding videos from others. And our children need to know they can be themselves without social pressures and harassment that sometimes occurs on FB. It creates a false world that we feel a part of, but aren’t actually participating in. It has certainly changed the way we relay information, especially news, but again, if you crave substance like I do, it’s time to say goodbye. No regrets.
