I’ve been thinking about this too, Carol. It is all over in a blink. Are we watching it go by or are we participating?
So true–a reminder, perhaps, to slow down and live.
Touching, timely and true. Loved this, Carol.
Carpe diem. Live each day as if it’s your last. Such trite sayings but oh, so true.
Boy, isn’t that the truth. Much of it can be depressing as much as happy. Thank goodness for the “I don’t want to see this” feature in FB. lol. There seems to be lots I don’t want to see especially wounded animals 🙁 Much to think about for sure! Thanks for the reflective moment Carol…always wonderful!
I’ve left a lot of group and turned off notifications. It’s too much with so much negativity these days for me at least on facebook.
Life is the longest thing we will ever do but at the same time, it’s over with in a flash.
So true. A good reminder to cherish the happy moments because they are so fleeting — and remember that the sad moments are fleeting as well.
A very real reminder to live and love in the moment.
Very true. Instead of water cooler gossip… we now have FB. We have vaguebooking, we have the overshare and then we have hide them from our feed. It is a fascinating microcosm of life.
It’s so true, time passes by so quickly and changes so radically. Thanks for the reminder to appreciate each moment and live life to it’s fullest each day. 🙂
That’s life…that’s what they say, flying high in April…shot down in May. And the wheel of fortune keeps turning.
This is beautifully written, and absolutely true! Well done 🙂
So true. And that’s why we must savor and enjoy every moment now–the present, because it truly is a gift.
Life passes quickly. I think about my children, my oldest 25 and it seems like just today I brought him home. Perhaps we are too occupied with living life through a computer and not so many of us are actually out there living it. Things to think about for certain.
Wow, this is the deepest post I’ve read about Facebook and I love how you poetically wrote this. You are so right, we are watching our lives tick by post by post out loud. I guess a part of me likes it. I like to look back and see what feelings are brought about by a photo I took a year ago. There’s some nostalgia in it.
So true, life goes by fast.
Poignantly said and something that just about everyone experiences these days.
As on Facebook, as in life. This post was definitely an “aha” moment to stop watching the time go by and live it instead!
You bet and life goes on but the most important thing is to pursue our own happiness
You talk about the outpouring of experiences–I wonder if people use the relative anonymity of FB to share those things that feel harder to say face to face. I had a dream last night that served to remind me that there is much to savor in slowing down and taking stock of what’s right in front of me. Seems we’re on the same wavelength.
I am bad about looking through what people have posted. I find that most people just share the highlight reel.
I always say I eat breakfast every 20 minutes. Time is going by so fast….
