Climbing back out...

Out of the blog vacation...out of the shadows...out of the cobwebs.

Why a blog vacation?

-If I'm being honest, I really took a "social network" vacation. In order to decipher the meaning of this, let's define the terms.

social network: a social structure made up of individuals (or organizations) which are tied by one or more specific types of interdependency...such as common interest, ... dislikes, .... beliefs, ...or knowledge.

vacation: a leave of absence from a regular occupation...

We all get caught up in the intertwined networks of the internet. Facebook, blogging, celebrity gossip sites...checking out old friends' pictures, making comparisons of the "picture perfect" display to your own life.

But wait...why should we compare to other peoples' online portrayal of their lives to our own true life? That's not right..anyone can make their life look seemingly perfect and effortless on the internet...but what you must realize is that we all have flaws, shortcomings, and imperfections in our worlds. Sure it's not necessary to focus on the bad, but it's not very truthful to only show the good.

Taking a step back has helped me refocus my energy on my own life, instead of on my positive portrayal of my life, or how others perceive my life. My life is great! Great job...great friends...great family (and cousin)...great home...great bf...and not only that, but I have two hands, two feet, 10 fingers, 10 toes, and a strong will to get things done and make a difference bit by bit.

Be calm, be at peace, be content. This is what I will hold onto as I jump back into the social relm.

Thanks for your support and patience :)
