The last few days, I can hardly view any social media news – even the regular news.
It’s the same old thing – over and over and over again!
Ground Hog Day intensified.
So as I sit this morning, enjoying morning coffee, temper tantrums came to mind.
Being a grandma, I have seen more than my share of temper tantrums over the years. I have experienced the small child that follows you from room to room throwing their little self on the floor, hoping to break me so that he/she may have their way. Even though most of the time, that child doesn’t really know what it wants or needs.
So this morning, I started to punch through news media, and I had to come to a halt. What in the world am I doing.? As I open up a page, its just a reminder of another tantrum being thrown. Never ending. Ongoing for over two years. When will it end?
In social media and in society, I go about and I see not just one toddler throwing a tantrum, but I see thousands upon thousands – day after day – throwing themselves out there on the ground, in public, with the same tantrum.
I am not even talking toddlers. I am talking adults acting like toddlers. Leaders acting like toddlers. Throwing fits everywhere!
I declare today, “That is not news! It is nothing more than a bunch of ill-behaved adults throwing fits to get their way. And remind you, for over two years now!
As a grandma, I am tired of it. As a human being, I am tired of it.
Need I remind others, that we are to be growing up – maturing – learning how to respond to one another without all the fits?
So today, I just closed the page and said I am not staying in this room filled with a bunch of toddlers throwing themselves on the ground. And I am going to continue to close those pages with the ranting and raving – the lies and deception, and go about my journey of encouraging others to seek out love and find ways to be creative and encouraging.
So today, I am done! I’m thinking its time to go out and enjoy nature!
