Now more than ever, an average twenty-something is likely checking their Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and text messages before making any further moves in any direction at all. And maybe email.. But what is really needed to return to the roots of human kind is to release from attachment to any of those things and make decisions based on desire and logic. Not FOMO on what someone else is doing. Not the “Top Five Mexican Joints in the Lower East Side.” And certainly not what the featured SnapChat stories of the day are suggesting. Only good, old-fashioned interest in hobbies, friends and current events, local or non-.
Is it not enough to live for oneself? Is it ridiculous to think that positive impulse is dead? The reach and ability to be informed has never been this impressive, but it doesn’t change that an individual’s good energy is not determined by anything we witness on a screen.
I’m guilty, as I’m running that hamster wheel each day. Trapped but periodically thinking of ways to escape. The maze gets prettier every day, but a 360 degree view will beat it at any time.
