It’s been a bit! I have not been in the best writing space lately. Alot has been contributing to this..the ongoing uncertainty of this pandemic is the big one. I have been letting some great practices slide, becoming complacent in my mindset.
The last few weeks I have been growing increasingly fatigued and frustrated with the way people are treating each other. We are living in a very divided society and I’m sure these shitty times will be well documented for our future generations to shake their heads at.
There are many different opinions- I am refusing to acknowledge”sides” because that to me seems like I’m ok with it. And I’m not.
I’m not here to change anyone’s opinions or mind on any of it. I know that no matter what, I will not convinced you that my opinion is the way to go, just like I know that you can’t sway me from mine. That’s called respecting others.
What I would like to suggest is a truce. A place where we mutually respect each other and just carry on. Where we can actually co-exist in peace!
Until that happens, here is my plan: I’m committed to living in my own universe. My own reality where none of these ugly words are happening.
Yep. I’m ignoring it all. You can call me naive if you’d like. I really don’t mind.
I used to very blissfully exist in my own reality where everyone had the best of intentions for everyone and everything and honestly I was good with it. If it meant people took advantage of my kindness, oh well.
My ex husband made me feel like it wasn’t ok to think like that. He would tell me I lived in my own little world in disgust. I should have known then that relationship was doomed but I didn’t.
Well, I’m older and wiser now. And isn’t it funny that I’ve had to read books and do activities to come back to something that is naturally how I exist?
You can choose to live like this. It doesn’t mean you don’t pay attention to what’s happening in the world. It means you remain neutral unless there is really something that needs action for your personal wellbeing. It means shutting out the noise and formulating your own way out of this mess. It means respecting people’s privacy and comfort levels.
I know many of you are with me.
So off I go, to wend my way blissfully into the calm world where peace and love exist. Come with me, it’s wonderful here.
