Trying to delete history of the United States will not change anything. It will not make the World a better place because it is just that . History. We have learned from and we can still learn from it but by trying to erase it, we are also erasing all of the good that came from it. Religion, Martin Luther King Jr. (whom I greatly admire) Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, JFK, Abraham Lincoln (whom I also greatly admire). Just many things and good people. Lessons learned from tragic mistakes and bad people such as Hitler, serial killers, oppressions and the list goes on. Of course bad things happened and great things happened. My grandfather, a man of Indian heritage was one of the wisest people I have ever met. He taught me things that serve me to an advantage to this very day. He taught me about strength, forgiveness, love, acceptance, giving and keeping your word. He had a tough life growing up but he never missed a beat. He told me of his History and tragedies he experienced and it taught me to always be a kinder, more forgiving person. Tearing down Statues, rioting, trying to erase things that happened is just a mind boggle for me. I walk around people and in 90% of the cases, we are smiling at each other. I look at the eyes and see it when mask are on. Leave History just where it is and we can still learn. But we can also realize that while we cannot change it because it is a done deal, just work to make the World, OUR World, a better place.
So much has changed in this new “normal”. Locked in, facetime for family and friends, mask, anxiety, Fear, sickness, tears, a longing to be with those you love, a desire to be in that church you always assumed would be open. The Yoga classes, the gym and the work place where it was always such a chore. the schools where our children met, learned and played. This new “normal” has sucked in so many ways. But there have been blessings too. Learning to appreciate what we took for granted. The freedom to see who we wanted when we wanted, the ones who loved being alone then found that having the opportunity to get out taken away made some of us want to reach out. It has made me have such an appreciation for things I just never worried about. I never knew wearing a mask could be so weird but I know how those with cancer must have felt or feel. The blessings have been seeing just how much we will now absorb and breathe in the ability to be able to be free again. So, along with the chaos cam the blessing of learning again how precious life can be.
I sure hope this year is so much better than 2020! That one was a punch in the face with a few kisses (new babies, united couples, recovery for so many, just many things) but here we are now in 2021. I hope to get back on daily and write my heart thoughts and thoughts that bring me laughs again. It got really tough the last of 2020 BUT I did as so many did and struggled through. We are all blessed to be here. I wish you all a very , very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Lol. When I first read about this I honestly thought it was a joke. Nope. Just another day in 2020. And here it is! Wow. I am expecting any day for baby dinosaurs to start hatching in the Forest. hahaahaha. Or maybe Vampires to finally come out of hiding and let us know it is “their” time to shine. Well, feed. Whatever. I am starting to not be shocked by much at this point. I mean, it just keeps coming. So, I figured I might get a laugh from some of it. Oh wow. just so crazy. So I have dreamed up some things. Baby alien creature snails that attack. Turtle that might be able to convert their shells into ammo holders to shoot at us. Maybe throw in a few Zombies coming by to sell Girl scout cookies. I mean this has been one crazy year so far. Oh and above is proof Mermaids do exist. hahahah. Have a great day/night fellow bloggers wherever you are!
I am trying to be calm and smile at silly funny things and be positive amid all of the things going on. I am trying to find ways to bring Joy and still face reality. But so far, no Corona as far as I know at least. I go to my bathroom and do Yoga, I pray, and I am trying to calm my very active Anxiety. God be with us all and I am thankful for everything to help in these trying times and scary times. The upside? We are clearing our air a bit. Go out and breathe some in and get a shot of Sun if you can. Our Country is trying to unite for the most part. Small but beautiful blessings.
I am very outspoken. I say what I think but I am real about it. that offends a LOT of people. Of course, everything seems to offend somebody these days. You see all these quotes about being you. true to yourself, do not care what anyone thinks so I don’t and needless to say, I am not popular in the friend department. Maybe because I am an empath, maybe because I am honest or maybe because that is just life. Who knows? I was even told once, just smile and share love. But do not smile too sweet or it will look fake and you could offend somebody. Sooooo, I think I will just keep being me and just doing my thing. I am also very kind hearted and I will help anyone I can. I just don’t do fake. 🙂 Oh well. Life in my lane. Everyone have a great day!
I just take a breath and say a prayer of thanks for surviving the knocks coming my way, for the ability to fight and keep trying. I look at the beautiful sky, the birds sweetly chirping and the sound of beautiful music. I think of all I can do and that I have an escape when fear tries to over take me. And I battle the people or things that try to destroy me. Sometimes, yeah, I cry because I know in some cases, I cannot save them or stop them from doing what they do to me. I am blessed that I can do it. That I can keep standing and trying. I know in life we have battles. But today, at least one day, each at a time I can take a breath. And I smile.
In this vast world of everything going so fast I often look around and see just how unique we each are. We may be alike in many ways but still, like stars, no two of us are identical. I think in so many ways that is awesome. We can be our own person and yet embrace others for who they are.
Trying not to discount their lives or judge them, even when sometimes we do not like it or agree or in my case get times where my anxiety sees them as they may not really be. Either way, we can all love one another and lift one another regardless of color, creed, religion, non- religion, and so much more because we can accept we are all human. And human makes us unique.
