I wanted to start the first post of 2021 and I know it’s a late notice with reflecting on the previous year along with the present and beyond. It’s been a heavy year for Mother Earth and humanity. This is just a series of some of my short personal notes titled t(houghts) and l(lessons)~ that I keep a log of throughout the turbulent times we are all living through. I wanted to share something important and personal to me that’s affected me throughout this pandemic. I hope you along with the people you love are okay and safe.
tl~ What does life mean to you? Who are you as a person? What are your core principles in decision-making? Your beliefs? These are questions I ask myself and others about their scope on events that have transpired since Covid. People are living in the physical and digital world more segregated. It’s easy to just focus on the ideas and information presented to you based on your own bias. Where is your growth and due diligence as a person if you don’t even take the time to do extensive research on the news or any form of information?
tl~ There is a lot of power in saying “you do not know or understand.” This is such a powerful concept I learned and it resonates a lot with my approach in life. It is okay to not know because there is a great abundance of knowledge and information. Life is about growing and learning every day. You die or short your growth if you think you know it all.
tl~ Seeing the world burn while I was taking care of my parents quarantined was one of the darkest experiences I had in my life. I did not realize how serious my bouts of depression were in portions of my life. It made me understand the reason why someone would take control of their demise. Will it get better in the future? Is this just temporary? Is it selfish of us to want people in the physical life if they do not want to be here spiritually and physically in the physical world?
tl~ It is mind-blowing that humanity was able to industrialize in as little as 250 years, but look at the cost it’s done to our planet. Could we continue to destroy this planet because of consumption all in the name of consumerism and capitalism? Are we evolving for convenience?
tl~ It will take me a long time to forgive this country now that I witnessed first-hand the response of our nation to the virus and what elected officials allowed and did to the people of America.
tl~ My heart goes out to anyone that lost someone during this time, or if you are just dealing with mental or physical issues, and anyone just surviving. Hang in there and I do think better times are ahead for us.
tl~ Your version of the world will only matter if you have the capital. It’s about helping others rather than yourself.
