So often, it’s easier to see the dark side.
It’s all around us . . . always.
Facebook is an accelerator . . . It’s crowd-think writ larger than ever in History.
We all have a choice!
Do we join the herd and spew the rhetoric out to our “friends” and anyone else who might hear us?
When others dare disagree, do we engage with volumes of vitriol and accusatory lambasting of those whose differences of opinion are nothing but WRONG and HATEFUL.
or . . .
Do we join this other herd that remains silent on whatever the issues of the day are . . . and engage instead with folks who prefer to stay on the bright side and share uplifting stories and experiences and practice a Spirit of gratitude?
or . . .
Do we do the hard work of joining both conversations and choosing to listen to understand all sides with the hope of conjuring some form of salve for the hurt that’s ensuing?
I’m a believer that we can always and forever look on the bright side of life, and no one could possibly make this point better than Monty Python.
So . . . whatever the beef of the day is, I hope you’ll consider leaning towards the bright side.
Life’s too short!
Whatever path you take will expand . . . and if you’re doing it on social Media, it will exponentially accelerate with the potential to fully consume you.
In very short order, this can derail your psyche and have detrimental effects on your quality of life and relationships.
S.L.O.W. . . D.O.W.N!
Don’t get caught in this web!
Unless, of course, it DOES define you!
Follow your heart!
Tell the truth!
Let it go!
