“Lord grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.” (Michelangelo)
What is your motivation? Is it the same each and every day or does it change depending on things like your mood, your emotions, your finances or whatever.
When you peck away at that keyboard in front of you is your motivation in the proper place?
I always find it disheartening when I see postings for which people are whining or dishing on others. If you follow Facebook you can find daily rants about others especially when any discussion involves politics.
Now I do agree there are times and places to get “things off your shoulders” as we would call it, but even then what are your true motivations.
Are you just letting off steam, sharing an emotion, releasing a frustration or are you trying to attack a situation, a place or a person?
Even in my keyboard word adventures I will on occasion release some emotions, frustrations or aggravations; but I also try real hard not to single out places or people directly because that never ends well.
Remember, the one fault of the socializing on the internet is that it hangs out there forever and is available to eventually be seen or read by more eyes than we can imagine.
So the lesson is – when hammering away at the keyboard be sure and know your motivation and intentions and make sure they will not be anything for which you will regret in a minute, an hour, a day, a week, a month, a year or a lifetime.
