We live in a world where we have immediate access to pretty much everything that is going 24/7. We know of everything from mass shootings to natural disasters to celebrity “tweet wars” before the dust has even settled in both the literal and figurative sense. Our parents and grandparents could not have even imagined such immediate access to world events as they are still unfolding.
But always being “plugged in” to what is happening in the world is not always a good thing. We can go into intellectual, emotional and even physical overload. Don’t you sometimes feel like you need a break from all the bad news and tragedy?
The good news is that all you have to do is turn it off when “reality” gets to be too much. You can actually turn off the TV, iPhone or computer. Did I hear a gasp?
Did somebody say “but what will I do?” You will do what we did in the “olden days,” you will live. You will go about your daily life, working, taking care of your family and even having a little fun.
I know we live in dark and difficult times, but they become even darker and more difficult if we let the darkness control us. So that is the story, in a round about way of how I decided to celebrate National Apple Month on Espirational during the month of October. Life, love, hope and apples still go on. 🙂
