Right now it just happens to be an Internet Rant, tho' Thankfully I'm able to Create a Blog Post without Problems, the Visiting of other Blogs and making any Comments is near impossible Today. I don't even Visit nor Comment that much anymore so I don't know why I'm so irritated actually, do you ever do that too? Get really wound up about a trifle that doesn't really matter but for some reason you're intensely irked!? I'm probably irked at other stuff really more Important and can't be fixed... so fixating instead on something trivial that bothers me and doesn't matter so much and is fixable, is just easier to digest.
There's a lot going on in the World lately that could be a real Downer and so I choose not to be Obsessed about it. Many are at the exclusion of everything else it seems, I just can't live my Life that way or it could rob me of my Joy and nobody's getting that... voluntarily anyway! There are some conversations I won't engage in nowadays with certain individuals because they are so Raw. Or sometimes so extreme in any direction that I just can't go there... not Today... probably not Tomorrow... likely Never in fact. My Peace is more Important to me and the Opinions of others not so Important to me and there it is in a nutshell. *Smiles*
In fact, lately things have been Well with us and lots of Positive things have been happening and so I'd like to just savor it for as long as we can and bask in it. In our World that is usually fraught with Negative things happening and coming against us it's so refreshing to have a string of Positives to Celebrate for a change! I realize some people even Live like this on a consistent basis, I can't even Imagine what that would be like, but I could mos def get used to it, that's for sure! I'm already thoroughly basking right now in ours and even an Internet situation can't dampen it hardly at all... hardly... well... somewhat. *LMAO*
Do you know I almost let it derail my deliriously Happy string of Positive Events! Almost... not quite... so a little Blog Rant was in order to dispel any Negative Energy building up and creeping in to sabotage the Bliss. Which is why I just changed gears and decided that rather than frustrate myself further by stubbornly trying to Visit other Blogs or Comment when the glitch wouldn't let me right now, I'd just do a little Ranty Post about it instead. I think when anything is bothering us to the point of Obsession or Distraction we should switch gears to ascend and rise above it rather than descend into Madness!
Right now Politics is driving some to utter Madness it seems, I'm sick to death with Politics and Politicians in general, even during an Election year... I can only take so much of any of it before stepping off. I don't want to discuss it anymore because Emotions run too High on all sides. I don't want to listen to the melee since it gets so Ugly and disrespectful between those with different points of view. So if that's the only Topic in a Conversation, count me out or my Head will explode since it's so very divisive and probably always will be. It's like watching War, how long do you want to see Humanity pitted against Humanity endlessly?
The Man was watching a Special on Vietnam Revisited and I had to ask him Why and was this really Good for him?! Being he'd already Lived it once, up close and personal during his numerous deployments there in his Special Forces days, and wasn't that ENOUGH?! I knew it was a Bad Idea and finally he agreed it definitely was and turned the channel before he had a total Flashback and a full blown PTSD Incident!
Revisiting that horror and having it dredge up old wounds, old Anxieties, the intense Suffering of all Humans involved, the difficult times of our lives getting thru it when it was in Real Time... serves no Positive Purpose for those who've been thru it IMO. Some of those Images are etched so deeply in our psyches as it is that I don't need to have it replayed for Real in a revisitation of it on TV and drilled deeper! I can never Forget too much of it and yet I don't really want to Remember either. Too many Loved Ones of mine were scarred by War.
If just getting thru this Crazy Election and the way it's playing out daily is the very Worst thing that's ever happened to you, consider yourself Fortunate. As for me and mine, we've Survived worse and we're still here and doing mostly Okay, so we're pretty sure we'll Survive all this too. And if by chance we don't Survive it, well, then if I'm on borrowed Time anyway... I'm sure as Hell not gonna squander a minute of it, Life is too Precious! I'm not running about like Chicken Little and for now my Sky isn't Falling.
Could it? Well, Yes, it could... anybody's COULD... the Future isn't Promised to any of us and just about anything COULD happen or take us out. But do you really want to dwell upon it day in and day out and forego Enjoying any of your Life? I don't. I will Live in and Enjoy my Moment. I suppose having lived thru numerous hard times and Crisis has taught me to just Savor each Moment that isn't horrible, even those that don't last long and are fleeting. Time enough to hit the Wall when the shit is hitting the Fan for Reals, as it often does. If the fan isn't even on and the shit isn't flying yet, I'm basically Good having no shitfest for a even a Moment. *Winks*
See how I have Calmed myself even tho' before beginning this Post I admit I was getting agitated about a trifle? My Internet Rant now isn't even on my Mind at all... Gone... laid to Rest... over and done with. Everything is as it should be and when you come back to Center it's all Good. I try very hard, even in Mi Vida Loca, to come back to Center at least by the end of each day, no matter how horrible a day it played out. And for the not horrible days it's easier to just stay Centered and not let your Calm be disturbed.
I Hope that for you this day has remained Centered and Calm. And if it hasn't been, the day isn't over yet and you could get back to Center if you Focus on that being your ultimate Goal to restore your Calm and choose Happiness. After all a Good Day is far Superior to a Bad Day isn't it? And a Bad Day Fishing is still better than a Good Day at Work as they say... so it's all relative. *Winks*
Blessings, Peace and Calm from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
