No offense Lester Holt…

I caught myself the other day. I know I’ve mentioned this a ton of times before, but I don’t watch the news. I find it utterly depressing and full of nothing but negativity. And all that negativity has a profound effect on me. I think because I do the type of work I do…work where I have to completely open myself up to energy…I’ve become REALLY sensitive to that energy. So I’m finding that I have to be particularly careful about managing it. That goes for Facebook too. A year or so ago, when there was a whole lot of particular stuff going on in the news, I found I had to ‘unfollow’ a bunch of folks on FB. Not because I dislike them, not because I disagreed with them, but because of the energy they were putting out there.
I woke up last week and realized I was really feeling crappy. Not physically, but mentally and emotionally. And I realized this as I was scrolling through my FB feed. Now, I usually open up FB, look at the groups I belong to for classes and business, look at some of the animal groups I’m a member of to see if there’s any interesting information I want to share, and then I’m off. But I realized that lately, I’ve been lazy and have actually been scrolling down my news feed and taking in more and more of the crazy stuff that’s been going on in the world and how people are responding to it. (And that’s the part that gets to me, the ‘how people are responding’ part. Let’s face it, people can be mean. And they’re being mean while they’re yelling at someone to stop being mean. Really?!) In other words I was, dare I say it…engaging…
Then this. When my hubby comes home each night, we often go sit outside by our pool and enjoy the evening with our dog. When we come in, I usually turn the television on. So that same night I was feeling crappy, I realized when I turn it on, it comes on to the same channel at about the same time so it’s always the national evening news. So I have to grab the remote and turn it to another channel before I hear anything. But this particular night, I noticed that I actually stood there and watched it for a bit before turning the channel. And it dawned on me that I’d been doing that for a few days in a row. And again, I was feeling crappy. Huh? How did that happen? I wasn’t managing the energy I was letting in and it was starting to take a toll.
So what’s a girl to do? Change the setting on my television so a cheesy Hallmark movie comes on instead of Lester Holt.
(No offense, Lester Holt.)
