I really must be getting old.
Anymore, much of what the entertainment industry has to offer just makes me shake my head. I must admit, I watch the news and read the headlines, but I just don't want to get too involved because it all leaves me feeling depleted and hollow. Like hearing who the "sexiest woman alive" is this year (really? just not my definition) or what some celebrity is doing who hasn't a clue as to what bringing value into the universe is all about. People are so caught up in promoting themselves. Often putting themselves out there in a less than honorable (aka gross) way. For what? Fame? Just to get attention?
There are good shows out there too though, so I'm not putting everything and everyone down! And I'm thankful for that.
I like to be informed but lately, I try not to dwell much on the headlines because that will land you in the ER with stress-related ailments pretty quickly. The fear factor has gotten out of hand. It drives most of the 24/7 news stations. I am disgusted with our government, and quite frankly, those who want to put the blame for our problems on one party or the other. That doesn't work for me. There are two sides who can't get their **** together and depending on which news network you watch you can hear who is more to blame. I just don't get caught up in that. I'm pretty sick of all of them and all the rhetoric. Just get the job done boys and girls and help our citizens who are struggling! No excuses and pointing fingers okay?
I begin my day with a cup of coffee usually by 6:30 am. I love the peaceful quietness of the early morning and especially love the first sip of the day! Edd and I used to begin each day with coffee in bed and I continue that practice much of the time. But now, I tune into the headlines and then switch over to I Love Lucy and then an inspirational or devotional reading. It's a much better way to begin the day.
