Things I Learned Today / Monday, August 17, 2021

Things I learned today…

Logic is so incredibly flawed. Arguments are empty. Discernment is at a record low. I am sad. Mostly for our children.

Raging voices are so incredibly loud. Promises are empty. Solutions are at a record low. I am frustrated. Mostly for our future.

Statistics are so incredibly skewed. Science is empty. Valid answers are at a record low. I am worried. Mostly for our health.

Mental health is so incredibly affected. Businesses and schools are empty. Solidarity is at a record low. I am afraid. Mostly for our country.

Today was actually a good day. I was just surrounded and inundated by talk of COVID, quarantines, vaccines, and closures. Border crises, Afghanistan, and joblessness. It makes me tired. Tomorrow, I’m setting a boundary for self preservation.

I want to live. I want all of you to live. I want our parents to live. I want our children to live. I want people across the world to live. Our best lives. Best.

I don’t want to be saddened, worried, frustrated, or fearful. And it especially pains me to think our kids are.

Consider this TILT a rant, I guess. It was on my mind. And I’ll say again, please don’t go there with your two cents about the whole thing. Just be. Just be right beside me, clinging to hope, looking forward, having every faith that God brings us nothing by happenstance. What side you’re on is of no importance to me. We are all people.

Whew. I feel better maybe. Back to joy. I shared joy with so many people today, and I get to do it again tomorrow! Yee!

And tomorrow is Birthday Eve.

That’s all. We learn every day, don’t we?
