I thought I would touch base on the state of our union and as usual, just my simple thoughts.
It seems as though the majority of people on this earth are more discouraged than ever. Turn on the news and it’s almost never good. Between mass shootings, greed and political craziness (on both parties), have left most of us feeling hopeless, and wondering if there is a God. It does make me wonder, “Whats going on?” Just when I think nothing more can surprise me, I am surprised.
Social media has influenced our daily lives on some level. Good and bad. The disconnect between actual face to face communication has been replaced with google, Instagram, Facebook, dating sites and the list goes on. The drive to work till the sun goes down replaces family and relationships. Sooner than later most ask, “What family? What relationship?” Some have no choice… but do they? One just has to “choose” to give up something (sacrifice) for a life of fulfillment. Most end up finding that money is not always the answer and usually you loose something along the way. Infidelity is on the rise, lack of respect for humanity is the norm, it’s no wonder we are more disconnected than ever before. I believe if something is important to you, you will make that something a priority, no matter what it is or WHO it is! If it’s not a priority, it’s not important. That simple.
People of all ages are dealing with depression and anxiety. Why do you think that is? Is it the current events? The addiction to social media? Reality shows that don’t seem to much like “reality?”
I ask, where is the hope? What do you believe? Do “YOU” know what love is?
I “think” and this is just me but I cant stop wondering if it’s just a “lack of” hope, faith, & love in the absence of human connection. When was the last time you got a hug, gave a hug, or made time to connect with another soul face to face? There are plenty of cyber hugs being sent out but come on….. really? Clearly those do nothing to feed our soul. We are desperate to connect and feel genuine love. When was the last time you felt that? When was the last time you gave it?
Some scream for attention in many ways and the internet is just one of them. What is it? Why can’t we slow down to notice a child in despair, or a partner in need of more than just financial security but respect, words of encouragement and quality time? So many are to deep in there own personal chaos they don’t even notice their in the depths of hell, emotionally, physically and mentally. And of course, one human soul can have a great affect on another. Personally, I find that everyone suffers.
So I guess this is yet another message of prioritizing you. For your health, mental, physical and emotional. We can’t expect someone else to do it for us. We are responsible for our own happiness. Happy mind, happy body, happy soul, happy everybody. Happy happy happy!
Now go out and make someones day! Give a hug, spend a little time with someone you care about and D E C O M P R E S S!!
