Why are you here?
I've probably asked myself that so many times that I've lost count. Mostly I'd say to help others, I even noticed that in my "About Me" link on my page, upper left under the avatar. I was updating my birthday settings and forgot that was in there. It was also in there to promote the artwork of others. Sometimes I fail, sometimes I hit the mark on both those goals.
And sometimes I get reminded of something very old and inspiring; perhaps of "simpler" times when I might have been more focused.
So You Want A Daily Deviation?
Thanks, Serathus for the blast from the past and for the slap in the face to not lose focus.
But that's DA. In life, reality checks are much more brutal and unforgiving. In the past few months an extremely selfish person screwed me over at work which cost me my yearly bonus, still haven't received my raise for this year, and don't expect much of one when I do get it.
If you haven't seen me as active on DA, now you know why. When you're dealing with negativity every day, there's no reason to take the risk of spreading it to someone who isn't deserving of a possible spill over. Unrest fav.me/d2qzilo was dark, and with good reason.
When you post a journal titled "Life is good," prepare to duck. Regardless, life is good and I still believe that because I know the crap that inhabits planet earth will one day be wiped into nothingness. And God shall wipe all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And the filthy fallen angel who deems himself like a god will no longer have access to the people who endured til the end.
And today I walk another day. Today I choose to overcome and rise above it all. And maybe, just maybe I'll clean out my message center. Maybe.
