Everyone is a genius and supremely confident online. A lot of black and white stands on every issue. Not a lot of grey. Rivers of confidence flowing behind these screens. I try not to deal in absolutes or get caught up in the current of opinion as fact. But when you spend a ton of your time wading through these waters, it's hard to not get wet with dirty water. I made the mistake of contradicting a follower on social media the other day and that was a black hole I was unsure I was ever going to get out of. I mean people do realize, even in this day and age of "smart" phones"and advanced analytical thinking, we still really don't even know why cats purr? I wound up telling the guy to take a breath and then I sent him to one of the links included in today's daily grind. I think we should all assess and reassess what's important every day, never stop thinking or evolving and most importantly...never stop laughing/crying. Here's to hoping all of these things are here in today's Grind post: Remain Calm and Love Hard :: Daily Grind #163.
