When I started this story, the title was going to be "Ruin your life". Only, after a bit of research, I realized I was falling into the void of everyone else out there.
Quite by chance, I ran across an article entitled "6 reasons Hawaii will ruin your life". The really funny thing is, I'm not quite sure how I got to this article. I'm sure the title intrigued me, and I do like to read The Huffington Post, but not quite sure what caused me to stumble across this one particular article. Well, besides the fact that there are now all those "crawlers" out there dictating what we read.
A funny thing about me though - I read it all. From the Huffington Post to Fox News - and everything in between. To ME, the BEST thing about all the information out there is well, we CAN read/hear it all.
I love a good fight. In the sense, back up your story, give it some legs then go to war. But you know what, I want the other side to do the EXACT same thing. I LOVE passion. I LOVE hearing both sides of the stories. Even if I don't agree. Even if I don't agree with either side.
HOWEVER, people who have NO legs and just ramble their thoughts (much I like I do here), be prepared for other people to disagree. That's why we live in America. We are free to think our own thoughts.
Not many times do I read an article, and think "you are wrong". In fact, I completely disagree with what you are saying. Usually, I think "well, that's one way to look at things". But this time, I was ready to fight. I felt I could.
But, then I got busy, and I did a couple of other things, then I tried to find the article again, then, well, I probably went to watch a football game. Then a hockey game, then, well, you get the point.
THEN, I tried to find the article. I went to the Huffington Post and searched for articles: 207,000 showed up for "ruin your life". (with the quotes). I then went to Google and typed in "ruin your life" - 61,900,000 different articles showed up for "ruin your life".
I'm guessing here, but I know there are many that are "tongue in cheek" - meaning, good in a bad way. I'm guessing more of these things are actually positives - disguised as negatives.
I did find the article - and I will dispute in in my next blog, but you know what? Here is what is really wrong.
When I searched for "complete your life" (in quotes) on Google - there were only 40,800,000 articles with those exact words. AND, on the Huffington Post?
Yes, the number three. I'm hoping this story will become number FOUR. Because, I'm not here to tell anyone how to ruin that there thing you call life. Just remember, it's so easy to focus on what we don't have, instead of what we do have. Let's focus on saying it right.
I'm here, to help you, complete your life.
