Welcome to A Life Examined

What is the examined life? A life worth living! As I look at the road ahead, I take all the baggage from the past and use it as experience - the pain and the passion, the sorrow and the joy - allowing it to carve wisdom into my mind and hope into my spirit.
There is no experience that can't be useful to me at some point in my life. There is no lesson learned that cannot make a contribution to the future.
A tiny drop of water is a part of the ocean. A tiny speck in the night sky is a ginormous star in the distance. It all depends on perspective.
So, this examined life is to offer reflections in the hope of discussing things which are of value to myself and to others.
Love, Sarah

Social Networking

I've joined twitter, facebook, linkedIn. Am I keeping up? Nope! I'm not sure how others do it, but I aim high and will find a time management scheme that will allow me time to engage.
So far, I've joined several blogs. Eventually I'll read the comments/conversations others are engaging in that I've been saving. And, eventually, I expect I'll comment too.

Anybody else feel overwhelmed by the task of staying on top of their (various) in-boxes?

I'm a writer for goodness sake, so why don't I write to keep up... Because so far, if I keep up with these on-line schemes, I'll not have time to create the stories I like to create.

The social network is, to me, magical - it is illusive, vast and a bit of a mystery.

I used to be able to juggle with 3 balls, literally. I thought that was pretty good. Now I'm back down to 2. I think the social network requires a few more balls in the air than I can handle, but I'll keep trying!

So this brief blog is a combination of the question above and an announcement:

Anyone who has an experience to share or advice on how to keep on top of the  social networks is invited to comment.

As for the announcement? It seems until now the ability to leave COMMENT on this blog has been blocked due to my technical limitations. Well, evidently I've sorted it out.

Care to comment to test it out for me?

God bless,
Sarah
