This is me admitting I’m kinda overwhelmed right now, but that I refuse to go into my typical panic mode. Just going to [try to] stay out of trouble and have fun riding the rocky wave of life. I’m putting my metaphoric blinders on and not thinking beyond 30 days at a time.

I knew there was a reason why I was keeping this thing around. Twitter won’t support my revelations and rants (who can really make a decent point in 140 characters or less anyway?)
It has come to my attention that I’m suffering from grass is greener syndrome [hardcore] right now. I log into my Facebook, someone new is engaged or married. Check out LinkedIn, an old friend moved to a new, more exciting city. Even my feedly (blog reader) has me thinking, “Damn, if I had a website like this, I would be set.”
The truth is that life isn’t as simple as the 140 character cap suggests and we won’t necessarily have everything we want all at once as it seems when pictures of an old high school classmate come up. We already know that there’s no such thing as a perfect life so why do we (I in this case) continue to go along with the notion these presentations are realistic.
In an almost ideal situation, I would say fuck it by deactivating all of my accounts. Yours truly works with social media for a living so that’s not happening. However, what I can do is spend less time trolling on these sites and more time reflecting on what’s going right. If we each did this at the end of each day for just 5 minutes, I wonder how much that could change our approach in performing otherwise routine tasks and interacting with co-workers, etc. I think it’s worth a try.
I must admit, life’s a little brighter with him around.
