The Truth is Out? Virus Pandemic — Not as It Seems

Good evening all. Well, I was told to get this out as soon as possible so here goes.

A friend of mine sent this video to me. I’m unsure if any of you has seen it. It’s a 48+ video of the fear the government/doctors and social media has put out! It will leave you speechless. Maybe pissed and frustrated all at the same time.

I don’t know … you tell me what you think ….

KATch-UP Mondays: I See You

Image result for I see you

Good morning! What better way to start the week than to remind each other and probably, MOST IMPORTANT, ourselves that you are seen?! You are heard. You are recognized. Someone is reading your posts. Someone knows and someone is always there. Today, like everyday, we need to take out time to appreciate the existence of our fellow brother and sister. Some may take that in a literal sense; I concur especially since I’m very close to my brothers. I’ve just come to realize my family extended beyond blood. We have band together as bloggers. Readers! I appreciate you! Thank you for your craft. Thank you for being a participant!

This blog, in a way, seems strange. We write and we know (or hope {smile}) someone will read what we post. To put some type of “encourage” seems odd for a blog. It’s done all the time, I know, but somehow it’s seem strange in the moment. I guess because it’s a blog. In a sense, I’m thinking this is something you’d put on FaceBook or Twitter; other social media outlets. Is blogging like social media? Hmmm! For the first time in social media status … I have consistency lol!

I see you! Now, do me a favor and pay it forward!

Wounded For … Praise?

Please, do not hestitate to help me on this riddle. Its classification stems from (constant) understanding all of us are individuals. We see things differently. What is “right” in someone’s eyes may not be okay in another’s.

My car is on fire! Woohoo!

The scenario is: a person loses a loved one in a tragic accident. Should social media be used to “glamorize” a situation for fame? OUCH! It is said, from many, that the news, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc., are used to “glorify” situations that should be kept private. Clearly by my response (OUCH!) it is hard to imagine using any social media to display something so personal. Isn’t that a time to hide away to deal with the pain in just losing that loved one?

I’m unsure if this applies, but … can someone tell me why those who commit, or about to commit, suicide do a letter and/or video? Is it to answer the question to the why? Is it leave a “peace offering” for those left behind? What is the actual point?! Again, in my head, reading or viewing a video on my loved one who takes his/her life is not going to “heal my wounds” of sorrow. Yes, it may explain why it was done, however, the devastation exists. It won’t go away like any other tragedy when someone passes. It will linger until the proper time is allotted. And, even then, that love one is never going to return. How do I, or anyone in such cases, supposed to rectify this?

Sooooo confused

Painfully I have a true story. I will keep all parties private — sidebar … I choose to keep their life private though they got on social media to talk about it. Wow, huh?! — Anywho, a person just recently lost their spouse. They tell this story on social media in how they found out. It sounds like there were some discrepancies far as dealing with police and such. On one hand I understood that they, likely, wanted to express a wrong for the area and their policemen; to inform others of injustice and to be on guard. Seems self-explanatory from this standpoint. The “confusing” glitch is the same person (understandably) wasn’t taking phone calls. The situation, obviously, is overwhelming and you’re trying to handle it the best you can. I get that! For real. That is pretty clear. Yet … did I miss something in translation? It’s best to tell the story or express emotions on a worldwide site than to just speak to those closest to you?

Last year my grandmother passed. A year is vastly approaching. I watched my Mom and her siblings go through the process when grams first passed. In fact, my Mom tucked away. She received many phone calls and text messages. She was only able to handle a few. She had (as I’m pretty sure my aunts, uncles, and cousins did) an out pour of love and support! I was so grateful to those who wanted to love on her. But, I must admit, I became very protective of her. There has to be that space! The person who just lost that loved one has to have time to wrap their minds around the events. I notice when stars pass away they request privacy. It’s respectful. A spokesperson shares the family’s gratitude for the love shown then time is desired!

I’m at a loss. Please, I would really appreciate your input on this matter. What are you thoughts!

Blog Fridays: Social Media Presents — Blogging!

Social media is the place we use for platform. A way to share with people we know and don’t know how we’re feeling, thinking, informing, etc. A powerful tool to spread our message across the world in an instant with just a click of a button “publish.” That’s actually pretty neat. So, since this is my platform, I’ve decided to finally share my dirty laundry with everybody …

See what’s the display?

Now, this feels great!! I had to get all of this off my chest. I was heavy laden with loaded pent up frustration. You know what it’s like. Life throws one curve ball after another. Sometimes we just gotta release and let the filth drop where they may. LOL

Great advice for us all

Look at what I found as a result of “drying out the dirty laundry.” This is a fabulous notation. “The best sign of a healthy relationship is no sign of it …” You know what’s crazy, I used to think and wish I could talk about a personal relationship I was involved in. If we took some pictures together that we’d put it on some type of social media to “express our love.” Uuuh, I have been proven right. Keeping a low profile is the way to go. I’m already a private person and letting the “world” know of a personal relationship is a bit much. Why bring unnecessary attention to something that should be personal? Personal expression can be shared on a date. It’s called PDA (public display of affection). I’ve done it before and could careless about what our surroundings thought. I didn’t do it for attention. It happened because my eyes were fixed! Maybe we should reconsider the next time we want to put our lives in pictures/words on the social stage. True expression is shown in secret and rewarded openly. Don’t make him or her feel uncomfortable, especially if they’re not comfortable with it. Now, for those of you who don’t mind this cup of tea, heeeeey, by all means, do your thang!

Hehehehehe … enough said

Last, but certainly not least … read the funny caption in the picture! This was a fun blog for me. I hope you enjoyed it as well. Again, laughter (considerable play on things) is good like medicine. Helping people, also, includes the ability to bring a smile!
