What is my biggest Fear?

Well, if you ask me the word fear seems to have a big impact on whether people take things seriously or not. Fear causes people to procrastinate and not take chances. Fear is what causes people to take on activities that endanger themselves and others. Fear will generally suck the life out of anyone who is of free spirit and something bad happens to them. The question is: How do we stare fear in the face and say “I Got This” “You Don’t Scare Me”

I actually have over the years and I have decided that I am at a stage in my life where I am just fed up with being scared away from opportunities. Two years ago, I decided that I wasn’t going to let someone else control my life anymore and I retired- just like that!

Thought I had had everything figured out and then life shows up something you can’t get away from or you just can’t say I don’t want to be a part of it.

We have been so close so many times to getting the world back on track and this happens….

Right now, we are self-distancing and practicing better hand washing methods. I am just trying to figure out whether this ever go away. I know the virus will not completely disappear but the minds of everyone and this pandemic will always be in the back of their minds. It is bad enough that we have people that choose to separate the races, those that dislike a certain class or people that refuse to practice unity- now we are taking 4 steps backward and we may never recover.

This is my biggest Fear

During this time, for all those who are on the front lines serving customers everyday including both my sons and my daughter. Please practice hand washing and stay-home if you can.

52 Week Blog Challenge- Week 12

Social Media Phenomenon

Social media has changed alot over the years and I have had my fair share of experiences on the internet. I didn’t grow up in the internet age so for me I had to pick and choose where I interacted with people. It is just so difficult to keep things private these days and social media really makes it hard to do that. When I started using social media, it began with Facebook in 2010 and it was so surprising to me how people can upload pictures and find friends and family members to connect to. I was able to connect to some family members and friends that any other way wouldn’t have happened. This was a great thing for me. Through Facebook, I found out about Instagram, which was a little different but the same concept. I like being able to share my life with friends and family but the fact is is that the people you connect with don’t always follow you and while you follow them. Twitter came next and I have to say that is my favorite because it is simple and you don’t have to spend alot of time on it. I use it to promote my blog and find others to follow.

Now that the platforms have gotten bigger, there is more unwanted ads, people like to bash others or stalk people and it is not family friendly anymore. I don’t get on it very often unless I am posting something about my children or on instagram about my blog. Too much anxiety involved.

My children on the other hand use other ways to socialize on the internet. They use videos and snaps, which is beyond my understanding.

The way I see it, social media in the next 10 years will become obsolete and people will go back to the old-fashioned way of communication-picking up the phone and calling people. Or making an attempt to travel to where their family and friends are.
