It has been quite a while since I have gotten myself to write here on my blog. I have been doing a whole lot of writing and really just avoiding. It’s funny when you start out and you are so dedicated and then life happens. I have still been writing, though not for my book or here, but I have been writing for my examiner site. I enjoy going to the shows and getting to see all these things that I have wanted to see for so long, but then I find that work and this writing and life in general has just kept me so busy. I read an article the other day about “fit people” and that they don’t make excuses, which is why they are fit and often times I feel that applies to most things.
It seems like all the important things in life require an application. It seems like almost everything nowadays you have to fill out some kind of paperwork, for a driver’s license, college, job, marriage certificate, etc., but to be a friend nothing. You simply meet someone, find common interest or ground and then all the sudden you are inviting them into your world and life and you really have no idea what you are in for. This can both be an exciting and heartbreaking part of life. Relationships are complicated and in all honesty, we go into all of them blind and just end up hoping for the best.
Friend of course is a noun and in the dictionary is defined as “a person who you like and enjoy being with; a person who helps or supports someone or something (such as a cause or charity)”.
It’s all perfectly summed up right there like a nice present with a beautiful bow on top, “person you like being with”. If only life was that simple and non-complex, that who we like being with also feels the same and has the same expectations.
You either are who you are,
Or you are who you aren’t,
Life is unfair or is it not,
It’s all in perspective,
Based on how you see things,
Get up in the morning,
Go to bed in the evening.
I have been falling behind on these posts lately and although I have been focusing on creative endeavors, opinion pieces are just that. We are asked to look at something, form an opinion and then articulate just what you have to say about it. Every day we all do this, whether it is conscious or not, we all make our opinions know about the news we hear and events that happen around us. This week, I am focusing on a sad event that happened in a Connecticut high school.
CNN: Connecticut teen accused in slashing death of classmate charged as adult
I have been a bad blogger! I have been neglectful of my writing and also my fellow bloggers here. I have been dedicating myself to my writing with the examiner and I feel like all other writing has fallen to the wayside. I did not do my weekly segment this week and I have been thinking about it but I have been busy and have not even really looked around the news to see what I could or should write about. Should anyone want to jump in and make a post for this week, please by all means the “podium” is yours, so to speak.
A picture of perfection,
The ideal smile and laugh,
You are an image of absolute joy,
The very idea of what we all should be.
But you aren’t real just an image,
You are the one that we try,
To kill ourselves to be just like,
And we always seem to fail.
There are so many things that we deal with, see and attempt to understand every day in our lives and so often we end up just not knowing. There are so many things that we can learn about, find interesting, seek knowledge about, it’s never ending. We can drive ourselves crazy with knowing and wanting to know but never being able to know and trying to somehow make that ok. So how can we live in a world and live our lives being comfortable with not knowing?
Another week and time for another segment of “I’ve Got Something to Say About This…”, where I find something that stuck out to me in the news and write a little about the article and share my thoughts. As always I am glad to hear from those who read or want to comment or if you want to take a stab at it yourself, please let me know and I will be more than happy to feature you. So without further adieu, this week I am talking a little about social media.
Teen’s Terror Tweet
There are times when we just feel like no matter what we do, it’s just never enough. No matter how hard we scrape to get where we want to be, there will always be something keeping us from reaching our final goal. We start to move ahead and just as quickly as we climb, we get knocked back down again. How are we expected to get ahead or make any progress when we are constantly being held back or slowed down?
