The medium is the message.
The medium (social media), the message (your words/truth). This stood out for me in 2010 because the Olympics were held in Vancouver and even across the country I felt like I was there. It was a coming together of pride.
Looking back since then I’ve been able & continue to share my stories of what goes on around me. In good and bad, I tell you my truth. It’s not always sunshine & rainbows but it’s my story. Life is an open ended book that you fill in to the best of your abilities at any moment. The one constant is that I learn things in every situation I put myself into. The most recent “issue” with my neighbour has made me realize many things, but the big thing is compassion. Even with the instability I try to understand as much as possible. Some stuff I don’t want to know or it’s beyond me.
The many “adventures” I’ve been in or continue to associate with are the sum of my parts (like my blog bio states). I feel very fortunate that I am able to be present and learn in the process. Even if it takes reflection after a situation, I still enjoy learning.
Now more than ever The medium is the message.
