As a wonderful and inspiring day winds down here, I found myself thinking about dipping my digital toes back into the social media pool. I have these feelings from time to time and I always find the willpower to resist. Today, thankfully, was no exception.
I deliberately ended my social media presence a long time ago because things got out of control. The attacks that came from people I never interacted with were just too damn annoying. The whole experience turned into a swamp of negativity. While the temptation might arise every now and then, I just no longer want to deal with fake people.

There was an accident this morning. The figurine shown above, part of my “Snoopy And The Gang” collection which used to be posted at the top of this blog for each post, was knocked off the counter by Stevie Nicks.
Thankfully, Stevie Nicks wasn’t hurt. The figurine took the worst of things. The sign at the top was knocked off, and both Charlie Brown and Lucy were decapitated in the accident. A figurine can be replaced, Stevie nicks cannot.
I will miss the figurine, but I hadn’t used it on this blog in quite a while. Perhaps I will replace it eventually, if that model still is in production. If not, the Gang will be short-handed for awhile. Life does go on.
I got a good night of sleep last night, and that is the first time in over a week I can say that. I honestly hit the snooze bar several times this morning, so I didn’t get my workout in this morning. Not to worry, I am going to get the workout done immediately after work because I remain committed to making the DDP Yoga work for me. In a way, I felt guilty about not getting out of bed early, but I know that sleep is important as well to overall self-improvement. Now I can look forward to the workout and then having dinner with Hal and relaxing for the evening.
