How you spend your time on the internet can really define how you feel about life. I myself hate when I realize I just got sucked into browsing Facebook for an hour, and all I did was the eyes glassed over, half conscious stare the whole time. Facebook can be awesome for sharing and staying in touch with people all over the world. But it can do what so much of the internet does, which is drag you down. There is so much stuff on the internet that can lift you up, inspire you, and make you feel excited about your life and this world. I would love to challenge you today to be aware of what you do online, and how it makes you feel. There's nothing wrong with surfing the web to relax, unwind, and enjoy the fact that for the first time in history, unlimited knowledge and exploration is at our fingertips. My favorite way is by going on Stumble Upon. I have it set so it shows me nature photos, landscapes, books, coffee, travel and other things I love. BookShelf Porn was a super fun find. And today I found you can do a virtual tour of the Smithsonian Museum. So if you're going to veg in front of your computer, find the stuff that increases your wonder and awe about the world rather than the stuff that makes you drool and check out like a zombie. It's out there, and just as easy to find as the zombie-inducing stuff. If you see the internet like a treasure chest waiting to be mined, your Monday will feel infinitely better!
Some things I found through Stumble Upon that made my heart sing with joy:
The Smithsonian's self-guided virtual tour
I'm not sure how to explain this one. It just made me feel appreciation for the creativity, intelligence and willingness of others to try things! It's called Keylight Experiment.
