I was just reading the news stream on Yahoo. You know, if aliens landed here and read the same news stream I did, they would probably leave immediately, thinking this planet wasn’t worth visiting. What a bunch of garbage.
Lindsay Lohan and her feud with David Letterman….Lindsay Vonn and her love affair with Tiger….North Korea and Russia both pissed at the U.S……mass-stabbings and a little girl dismembered…..the latest NCAA football scandal…..Syria……one little not-so-simple day in the world.
Some people love it. I swear, some people love chaos and the feed off of misery, as long as it isn’t their misery. We are surrounded by adrenalin junkies, the ambulance-chasers of the 21st Century, and if they aren’t finding their stimulation online then they find it watching “Reality TV.”
Now the interesting thing about what I just wrote is if you did a survey, everyone that you talked to would agree, that this is a crazy world and we all need to slow down and appreciate the beauty in life….and yet they are part of the same madness.
It’s like a slow-motion train wreck. You can see it happening and you can’t stop it from happening. You know it’s going to be horrendous but you can’t take your eyes off of it. It never dawns on people that they can simply turn away from it and not watch.
I’m not a sociologist or psychologist. All I know is that I am happier when I turn my attention to the beauty in life. When I concentrate on the positives and not the negatives, then my life is great. I call it PIPO….positive in/positive out. It’s the only mantra I need to get through a day.
