Is anyone besides me sick to death of the current political feeding frenzy on social media? Yeah, our country has problems, but here's a newsflash for you: we always have and we always will. Getting frothed up online damages your reputation.
Case in point: I moseyed over to Facebook the other day to check out a particular actor who's picture was an inspiration for one of my heroes. Whewie! The venom this fella was spewing about the current administration kept me from 'liking' his page. Not that I'm a huge Trump supporter, but the man's negativity was a huge turn off.
There was also a blogger who I used to avidly follow until his posts morphed from awesome writing advice to rant-filled nastiness about those in charge.
Now don't get me wrong . . . I'm not saying you shouldn't voice your opinion. The first amendment is still my all-time fave. I'm simply saying make the extra effort to be kind in how you express yourself.
It's an ugly world out there. Bring a little beauty to your little piece of turf by smiling at someone today.
I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me
two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the
latter. Way cheaper. I've been writing since I discovered blank wall space and
Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write...except for that graffiti
phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?
