Quietly Excited…

What excites you…a question posed on a Facebook status…I read the responses…clicked like on each of them…but…in that moment…I couldn’t answer…

Maybe because it was too early in the morning…well…it is hard to get excited about much before the rooster crows…but…Bertha…says it’s more than that…

According to her I’ve been taking myself too seriously lately…focusing more on the concrete…the absolute…the negative…the what is

And…she’s right…I have…I’ve had a couple of glitches…lately…that I have taken very seriously…

She goes on to point out…that my contemplation time…has become more of…desperation time…solve this…fix that…instead of a time…of filling my emotional tank…

Normally…contemplation time…opens my eyes…to the beauty around me…to the things that excite me…but when…I approach it from a negative place…it simply…leaves me…empty…and…that being empty is why I couldn’t answer the question…

Hmmm…

So…I contemplated for a few minutes…and…the answer came to me…

Quiet time

Quiet time…excites me…because…the more quiet time I have…the more…I become…the person I want to be…

PS…back to the contemplation chair…

Hacked Off…

My daughter called yesterday…not really unusual…she does call frequently…but…she was out of town…so…I knew something was up…and…up it was…Mama…you just sent me a friend request on Facebook

Hacked

Now…I was knee deep in writing…for a change…but…I sauntered on over to Facebook…where life was anything but normal…I had messages…I had posts on my timeline…people were sending me instant messages as I was trying to find out what was going on and report the phony page…

Seems as though I was part of a…scam…where someone assumes your identity…copies some of your pictures…making the page look real…and sends requests to all your friends…then…sends them messages…so excited that they have won money in a lottery…and…only have to pay…$$$…in order to collect it…

Luckily…none of my friends…sent money…but…several of them did accept the friend request…thinking that I had somehow…accidently…unfriended them…and…was simply making things right…at first glance…the profile looked right…it had my cover picture…it had my profile picture…and…they accepted me…once again…

It’s easy to do…I’ve done it myself…

Anyway…afterwards…I was…frustrated…angry…the whole thing had taken a lot of time that I really wanted to spend working on my work in progress…

Bertha…popped in…reminding me…of my challenge of late…to…love…regardless of the circumstances…she reminded me…to send the love blessing to the hacker…

I wish you peace…I wish you love…I wish you happiness…I wish you good success…

Because…she reminded me…one more time…that…if this person…felt…peace…love…happiness…and…success…in their life…they wouldn’t be…spending time…hacking Facebook accounts…

Hmmm…
