I was very disturbed last night by a post I saw on social media. Before social media, a phone call would be made announcing such a delicate matter. My heart breaks that the announcement was made in such a public manner. I am actually going to pretend I never saw it. No acknowledgement or prayers will be given by me. I know it sounds cruel but what did we do before technology happened? Plain and simple. We picked up the phone to make contact with our sponsors. It is much better to truly hear an individual face to face or over the phone. Our true emotions can be felt or heard. When we text or write on social media, something gets lost in translation……..our humanness and true emotion. This is only my opinion. Oct 2017 marks a year that I began a social experiment to talk to as many strangers as I can. This past year I have heard a lot of stories. Some happy and some sad. For the most part they have been very inspirational to me. In a brief interaction with others, I am able to hear a small part of what inspired them to be who they are in life. I get to share a little part of myself with them. Together we are one…….A part of the human race, racing towards recovery. Life is too short. Learn to live in the moment of peace and serenity. One day at a time.
