Social media can be flat, most humans are 3D

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/I know this might be a stressful time for some, but I hope this finds you in good stead. Every choice has consequences.
In the course of human events it
becomes necessary to distract ourselves at times, I don’t know about you, but there’s no limits to what I can accomplish when I’m avoiding doing something else, yet we hold these truths to be self-evident, some choices must still be made, hopefully informed choices.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

Some choices are easy. Some hard. Some seem like a joy or a joke. Some involve danger, some choices even have underestimated peril, ie. household chores  – germs, cleaning tools, boredom, hiring strangers, using pets (who hasn’t wondered if pets could help with household chores?) and imagine trying to really ‘clean house’?

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

Then there’s the danger of choosing ice cream or chocolate and/or chocolate ice cream as a remedy for the common cold, it may not lessen the tyranny of the infirmity, yet if you add whining, comfy clothes, and sniffling, the choice is clear. Sniffle.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

Admittedly, choices would be easier if everything was simply spelled out for us, without: lies, manipulation, false promises, hidden agendas, threats, deceit, complex small print, and if we weren’t at the mercy of drama ‘monsters’.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/
Life is a leap, we’re always jumping into the unknown – every second, minute, hour, day. Life changes, there are peaks and valleys, but as long as you breathe, there’s hope.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

 Remember, even if…

1. You did something, said something that embarrassed or cost you, and/or offended, disturbed others. Learn from it. Social media can be flat, most humans are 3D. Keeping your dimensions, they’re important.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

2. You stayed too long and gave too much, trying to save a toxic relationship with: a partner, friend, family member, group, organization, political party, etc. That doesn’t mean you’re trapped, mentally chew off that leg and get away.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

3. You got caught up in the hype machine, most have at one time or another (even if they won’t admit it). Simple answer – accept responsibility, and change, start again.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

4. You fell head over heels, with stuff, especially during the holidays. We instinctively hunt and gather, now for stuff. You felt momentarily joyful but less than triumphant. Don’t feed addictions, accept them to overcome them.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

5. You found out the hard way talk is cheap – words, words everywhere but not a lot of truth, common sense, or depth.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

6. You gave your trust, your love, your dreams to people who sometimes didn’t deserve or care about those gifts; that’s about them, not you.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/
7. You forgot, while you’re responsible to many in this life, in the end, you’re only responsible for yourself and your words/actions.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

 8. You took things for granted, got comfortable and forgot everything can change, end or disappear. It can, they can, it does, they do…so don’t.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

9. You gave up, settled, but it’s never too late, at least to have a modified version of your dreams.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

10. You’ve worried, fretted, brooded, hoped, believed, over thought, agonized and still things didn’t go your way, the other shoe still dropped. You fell and it looks like you’re down for the count. It doesn’t matter how long it takes, get up, dust off, there’s no time limit on getting back up.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/

Halloween has come and gone, election buzz drones on and on, even if it seemed more like The Hateful Eight and clickbait than democracy. We lived through this horror for 9 years in Canada until we were,er, ‘saved’ by sunny ways.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/
Thanksgiving – we should be thankful every day, but maybe we shouldn’t eat that way.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/
Even before we take a day to remember and honour our soldiers,
https://yadadarcyyada.com/2014/11/03/lest-we-forget-to-shop/

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/11/11/social-media-can-be-flat-most-humans-are-3d/
Black Friday and CyberMonday deals send cash registers pinging, Christmas bells start ringing, everywhere there’s singing. What will it be like this year? Still holiday cheer? More chances to learn and grow, to stop seeing each other as us or them.

Love is all around, going backwards wastes it. You can never tell what’s next so just keep going. You’re gonna make it after all.

    1. You’re so welcome, as I said, we understand here in Canada, almost a decade in a horror movie that seemed to have no ending, but it did and it was a bright one, so far. Big hugs and hope this weekend treats you well, Lisa. 🙂

    1. I know it’s hard right now, dear friend, it seems like a big cosmic joke, but we went through this for 9 years in Canada, it felt like a horror movie that would never end, but it finally did. We kept fighting, struggling, agonizing to get our country back and we did, for now. I wish the same for our friends/neighbours in the USA.

  1. “Social media can be flat, most humans are 3D.” Wow! Donna, are you sure you aren’t a psychologist/self-help coach disguised as a blogger? Very profound post; I’ll try to keep up hope, as you and your fellow Canadians did for so very long. Thank you for the smiles, as ever!

      Thank you and today is an amazing day to remember what so many countries and their people have endured – war, invasion, abuse, torture, dictators and so much more and they’ve come out on the other side. America is strong and brave, it just needs to remember what it’s been through and prevailed to find it’s true voice again. I believe.
      Hope this weekend treats you kindly. Big hugs xo

  2. Wonderful post and I could not agree more! No matter what happened yesterday, today is today and we need to go from here! Trying to change what already happened does not help but makes everything worse. Let’s all (the world) stand up and make the best we can with a smile on our face and love in our hearts. Let’s enjoy our life and let’s not allow anyone to steal that light from our hearts… no matter what happened yesterday!

    1. Every time I use the smart meters (keep a chart of the hours close at hand, sigh) and still pay more money for hydro and still pay the fee for splitting up hydro from the Harris days, yup, one way or another, we pay. And we will continue to pay as long as politicians know they can lie, er, sorry, use campaign devices and are not held accountable. The news makes a joke about it all because it’s all about ratings/advertising money for them. Oops, you might as well have ranted, Debby, I just did. 😉

      1. I hope to goodness not Donna.. I think the emotional intensity that the majority of the world experienced is extraordinary. If only we could harness that in a positive way we could make a lot of changes. Leonard leaves a hole. I was more or less banned from listening to him as a teenager.. my parents were already in their 50s and found that time very difficult to get their heads around! You have a good week too.. hugs ♥

      2. We need to learn and go for the positive, so right, Sally, here in Canada we had a celebrity running (his Dad had also been Prime Minister) and he went for sunny ways which was a lovely change from the horror we were living under. I hope for the same for America and other countries being invaded by right-wing radicals. As for Mr. Cohen, he’s been a voice in my head so long, I doubt he’ll ever leave. I’m glad you have the freedom to experience his joy and wisdom now. 🙂 All the best and thanks again. 🙂
