New Days Give Us The Opportunity For New Beginnings

 

N704a Untitled Blog

I’m keeping this post short today.  There is just a lot going on in RL right now that I need to put my energy into and so today, lack of time keeps you from having to listen to me ramble too much.

The past few months have been exhausting for so many of us.  The world is in a state that I have never seen in my life.  Many of the people I know are going crazy from being stuck at home.  Some of us have been working so hard that it’s impacting our ability to function properly.  Emotions are heightened.  Many of us are reacting to things instead of responding.

I know that for me, I have not been as active on social media lately.  Some days I scroll through Facebook and I just have to close it.  The attacks.  The lack of civil discourse.  The rush to judgement.  It’s been too much at times.  For my own mental health, I have needed to just take a step back at times as I confront my own issues.  As I have sat and watched, I have seen the best in people and the worst in people.

N704b Untitled BlogI hope that as we slowly find some return to whatever the new normal is that we all take a moment to look back on how the world has changed through all of this.  I hope we all take moment to look at ourselves and see how we responded to all of this personally.  And by that, it’s not just did we stand up for the right cause and beliefs, but did we do it while respecting other human beings the same way we feel we should be respecting.  If we can’t say that we met that goal, then even if we were in the right, we have to accept that we did something wrong.

If I could, I would pay for everyone I know to have a little retreat to a place like what we have pictures here.  I believe we all deserve a little treat like that…

Everyone deserves an opportunity to evaluate, in a peaceful and healthy way, who they are and what they have learned through all of this madness.

    Tiff, I can’t click enough likes for this one. You’ve said exactly what’s been on my mind the past 70+ days I’ve been in self-quarantine. At first, all I saw on the news was death and doom. But gradually I think even the news people have realized that we all need a break from the madness. Either I’m just noticing it more, or else they really are trying to highlight some of the good. The heart-warming stories. The heroes who gave to others without expecting a reward. I’ve seen the good in groups of people, too, during the BLM protests. It’s my fondest wish that after the protests are over, we see more generosity and tolerance between us. I don’t want to give up on that fairy tale. When even a conservative SCOTUS can vote like they did, maybe there’s a sliver of hope for all of us. ♥
