I'm not sending this out into the forums to get responses...I just want to give some of you folks something to think about.
I'm not a person who can get online with a group of people and chat, it is just too hard for me to keep up with a conversation. And I've posted stuff to threads when I thought my thought/opinion had not yet been expressed. But I've tried not to be too vocal.
Well, this time, I just can't do it anymore.
The posts I've seen to many threads in the last several months and especially in the last few weeks have been overwhelmingly negative.
Always there are people complaining about something, trash in the caches, caches that have been trashed, atv's - dangerous or not, hunters - dangerous or not, the coin, the State of Maine and, of course, the infamous micro's.
(sorry to the teachers/writers out there about all the comma's)
We all need to be gratefull. Gratefull we're alive, gratefull we live in Maine, gratefull for our familes, gratefull we can afford to geocache, gratefull we can afford to eat, gratefull when the sun shines, gratefull the mail comes, gratefull someone thanks us for doing a good job, gratefull for......
We ALL need to work to the betterment of society, but YOU need to take the first step and not wait for someone else to do it. Everyone and everything has something to teach us if we will only listen.
Maybe your lesson is there can be 2 opinions about something and their both right. Maybe your lesson is that you can't make everyone happy, no matter how hard you try. Maybe your lesson is you have to work harder to keep the environment clean. Maybe your lesson is to listen. Maybe your lesson is to trust others.
That's for you to figure out. But all the complaining dosen't get anyone anywhere unless you also take action and make the situation better.
