It Is Up To Us To Believe Or Not To Believe

Updated on November 18, 2013

What Will You Do ?

Anything can happen

The facts of each day are before us

We interpret the news as we see fit

Taking in what we feel is necessary and forgetting the unimportant

Distracted by t.v.

Programs that catch our attention and interest

Side track our thoughts

Relaxing our mind

Making life more abstract and less practical

Calming our worries and fears

Taking the obvious and twisting the truth

Turning reality into fantasy

Entertainment has it's place

If it takes up too much of our time

Then it can make us lazy and unfocused

Stalling our dreams and fading our passion

      Joy56 For elderly people it gives them company and pleasure for a long day ahead. It can be a magnet for sure. What great thoughts you open and explore.It is always better to share and go beyond our own present potential. Thank you for finding the time to return to a place so kind.May your day continue with new thoughts and energy.

      it's the focal point in our house,

      we stare at it all day,

      It stops us talking to each other,

      The children never play.......

      Cant remember the rest, but I wrote this when I was feeling I was watching too much t.v. The end line read.

      Perhaps there is a hidden magnet,

      attracts us to the screen.

      It could not be it's content,

      This programme is the worst I have seen

      Would not be without the t.v. to relax...... GREAT HUB

      jhamann Growing up I couldn't wait to do my homework and sit down at night to watch certain t.v. programs. We always went out and played after school it was great exercise and a nice break from school. It seemed a perfect combination. As an adult I am so busy doing other things but t.v. is still relaxing and fun.I love to see how other people find the time.Thank you for sharing and commenting . Have a relaxing night.

      Very true. I find I have no time for the t.v. only about an hour after the kids go to bed. Jamie
