Save Me From Myself. And other social media DOHs.
by Stan Faryna
Some things we might have figured out. Or for now. Some things, not too well. Other things, not at all.
Commenting on Jayme Soulati’s recent blog post, 13 Tips To Create Remarkable Content, I mentioned that one of the great insights I’m holding on to is about love.
The only things worth doing are the things worthy of Love.
And as I told Jayme… honestly, I have never been more challenged to live truthfully (live the insight) than now.
Christina Aguilera, Save Me From Myself
I despaired as I wrote that I am challenged, because I am. Challenged. I am disabled.
That word, disabled, reminds me of a tweet last week (or so) by Nisha Varghese. Nisha has cerebral palsy.
Question: What do you wish you do but can’t?
#IAmDisabled #SpecialNeeds #Disabilities
Nisha was really asking me how am I disabled. Three things immediately came to mind:
1. I don’t love enough.
2. I don’t give enough.
3. My love doesn’t work wonders. Flowers do not grow from my footsteps.
Sometimes, I don’t think there is enough juice in my loving. Most of the time, I don’t think that I have enough to give in a way that makes a difference. I disappoint myself. Because I can, should, and must do more. But I don’t. Instead of doing more, I find it easier to own the mountain of my failures.
Do you feel like that? Sometimes?
Keep on trying. Don’t give up.
That’s what I’m telling myself.
That’s what you tell me. That’s what I tell you.
That’s how we are saving each other. One piece of me and you – one day at a time. Love, hope, and faith come in pieces. That’s what’s going on. This is what I felt as I read Alexandra’s blog post about blogging.
Because there are some things that are worth it all. All of the time, hours, preparation.
Is that what social media is really about?
Maybe, that’s why we can’t walk away from social media. The results are intangible, but very real and, possibly, bigger than all of the tangibles put together.
Because we are saving each other’s lives, every day.
