Boy am I glad that today just so happens to be time to link up with Amanda in order for me to think out loud.
My brain is on overload.
Not from my personal life, not from raising a little boy who thinks I am only cool when I make him grilled cheese with bacon and not from my writing workload.
My brain is on overload from the extra wide variety of apps, search engines, social media platforms, internet options and who knows what other technical words I can throw in here to get my point across.

When did life get so complicated and involved and technical?
I know all of these apps and platforms and internet options are supposed to help us but lately I just don’t feel assisted.
I feel drained, torn and honestly, overwhelmed.
If you haven’t learned by now, very little overwhelms me. I have a really good grasp, if I do say so myself, on remaining calm and balanced throughout every area and situation in my life.
But the internet lately? The options?
The amount of websites I am able to view THAT REALLY SAY THE SAME THING and then the option to load them all for a ride on a cloud so that they land on every device I own?
Every time I hear about this cloud stuff my brain automatically thinks Care Bears.
Call me old-fashioned but isn’t it all a bit too much sometimes?
No wonder there is such a rise in attention deficit disorder. Who can focus?
So many options, apps, gadgets and gizmos that can sync you to the latest fitness and/or diet trend, the latest must-have “recipe” guaranteeing you to become better and stronger at everything yet America is still overweight and probably even more sedentary with all this web surfing and floating on clouds.
I once knew an old-school and wise man. When he heard of all the diet crazes and fads, he only would utter two words: LESS INTAKE
Without going too far into his theory, for the most part he is correct. Eat a little less…and move a little more.
I have decided his old-school theory now applies to modern technology. LESS INTAKE.
Although, should TASTE IT! ever become a sharing button, please let me know. That may be something worth looking into.
Until then, at least in my world, the clouds are for the Care Bears and cookies still mean chocolate chip.
