Be Calm In The Middle Of The Storm.

작년

It's been a while since I posted here. Lots of things have happened since last December... I got 2 months of non stop earthquakes in my island Puerto Rico, I got flu twice... yeah, twice! Lucky me, huh?! My mom got into the hospital twice... wait, should I go and play number 2 in the lottery or something?

So, I always kept an eye in steemit and discord and a few days ago the Justin Sun thing just pop up. Lets be sincere here, there were rumors since December about him buying steemit but we all thought it was nonsense... well, nonsense got real!

Since the announcement lots of FUD, hysteria, gossip and call to war has filled the blockchain and twitter. Too much confusion, too much disinformation, too much weird ideas, too much fear induced stuff... just too much!

I get it, I totally do. After all I'm part of steemit and steem blockchain too. Like everybody else I have steem in my wallet and after 2 years here I will hate to see this blockchain die but I will not under any circumstance let gossips, fear, rage, disinformation, FUD, drama or husteria take control of my thoughts. That will just gonna end in me doing all sorts of wrong actions that can screw everything and that will be irresponsible.

Look, Justin Sun spent millions to get steemit. No one will throw away a fortune if there's no profit in it. We still don't know what are the plans or how things will be in the near future and we have badass witnesses prepared for all types of scenarios, so why should I panic? Why should I start moving my assets in a hurry? Why should I act all rushed based on rumors and expectations? Doing such thing is not even logical. So I will remain calm. I will keep curating people like I always do. I will keep an eye to the official info and ignore the rest. If our witnesses tell us to move the funds or to prepare for a fork then I'll do it. If steemit inc team, tron team or Justin Sun says they will swap the token then I'll move my steem to another place and that's it.

There's no need to panic! We do have good witnesses that knows what they are doing. I do believe in the witnesses I voted for. They always deliver and they will make sure steem blockchain survive. I do think this partnership can bring good things if things are done properly, so let's see what both teams bring. I will remain calm, I won't act on gossip or fear, I will keep an eye on all the info and wait. Be calm, people! Don't let fear control you.

BTW, I made that painting in autodesk sketchbook app. I wanted to paint something relaxing so I made a stormy sky with a calm lake with cristal clear water. I think that scene fits perfectly all whats going on in steemit. I wish the best for steemit inc, for steem blockchain and for all of us as community.

The moon was too tiny for us! Let steem conquer the sun now!


XoXo,
Luz 💋

Everything is fine here, waiting for spring to arrive. I hope the craziness is over over there and things can get back to normal 🙂

Ah yes, thank you for helping me to stay all calm and relaxed. I needed that. And with a lake, with cattails, no less. HH would be proud, "you can eat those". So good to see you survived the incessant shaking and rain and even all the human calamity. Hope your mother is doing well now. As for Steemit, as you say, maintain the course and bob with the waves, Bob. What else choices do we have? I just hope it stays around long enough for me to get back on here regular like. Such a fun place, such fun people, and SO much to say about things of SUCH import. Cheers on a Thursday in Feb

DD! wait... U can eat those weird lake grass? Didn't knew! How is everything there? Still cold? How is HH? Miss to read you both! Also, HH would be so proud of me, I'm eating way healthier now 😅... Oh, how is cousing That? Is he frozen already? and the apples? I bet Wilson² is having vacations!

"Many parts are edible." -Eul Gibbons (sp?) They look like cat tails, which I THINK they are edible. At least the tail part. But I'd have to check with the boss to make sure. And for sure I wouldn't go making stew out of stuff based on MY recommends. Yikes, and double yikes.
As for your ??, here goes...she is doing well. Says one day shall return, as do I. I think I am closer at this point...I miss the fun of it all. Cousin Whatsit is doing well, and growing larger by the day. Wilson² is still very full of hot air, and therefore still in 'prime form' (round). Sits on the couch and discusses all kinds of things with me. No vacations for awhile, I had surgery on my knee, but soon, he shall be out and about, as soon as I am. Ah, more adventures down the road. HH says hello and good job on eating better. Weeds are all the rage, you know. Just ask her. Now mushrooms are huge as well. Not figuratively, but in the world of edible and fun to mess with.
It is nicer now, not as cold, except at night, low 30's, but sunny in daytime. But not HALF as warm as your end of things. Summer shall be here soon though. Well, I've babbled on here longer than long. So keep it real and keep smiling.

I hope your knee gets fully recover soon! Oh the weeds! She's my guru when it comes to that! Hope you can go back to your adventures soon and we all get to read them! Take care DD!

Nope!

lovely drawing. it has a solid photorealistic bit.
thanks for the good wishes, about controlling fear and else..
nice to know you are around.

I'm not always calm but when I do I paint pretty clouds hahahaha

Awesome Post,
At the moment I feel the same..
"Calm" is the only answer..
Of course if I had a few thousand or more tyed up in Steem, I might feel differently...🤔🤔🤔

·

I think I will feel the same even if I have millions of steem. When it comes to money we all need cold head to think, if we let our emotions to get on the way we can end up losing all. So calm it is! :D

You popped into my head today while I was driving. I haven't been around much lately either. I'm glad to see your words once again. Hope all is well despite all those frustrating twos.

Hey! How are you and your family? How is the tribe doing? All good here, trying to finally start the year cause I'm kind of late for that hahahha

·

We are good, thanks. I think quite a few of us are a little late starting the year. I have somehow gotten very behind.
