Hello! It’s been awhile since I’ve written in this spot. Welcome back as we enter the year 2015. Yesterday I committed with fellow writer Cyndi Hughes that I’d start this blog up again and write every day for the next 365 days.
Because I’m on the thick part of the tail end of the Boomers my perspective will be that of a Baby Boomer but really I’m writing to YOU, dear reader, that unique part of you who sees the wry sometimes unsettling part of being human in all its messy beautiful awkwardness. So let’s gather around, warm our hands by the fire and get started. I would love to hear from you so please do share your insights, comments, humor, wisdom and musings!
Thought for the day: There seems to be several writer friends who have been swimming around in various social media pools for a few years and are sick, sick, sick of it! Are you? What are you noticing or experiencing? A few of the digital publicists I know are tired of the b.s. of it all. They are burnt out from working with clients, especially the ones who tout themselves as being spiritual leaders for a better humanity, who (in real life) act like complete and total dicks to everyone around them (family, friends and employees).
Helpful Hint for Being Human: Don’t believe everyone’s B.S. and definitely don’t believe in your own! There is one part of me that takes comfort in the fact that “we are all connected” and then another that likes being unique from others which means I have to somehow accept that I am just one of many unique beings. The comfort I can take from this is that although we humans can sometimes be apathetic and indifferent en masse when we choose to shake ourselves awake we can use our unique perspective to take a look around and choose how we want to experience life.
