What do you want others to say about you when you’re gone? For me personally I want others to tell me while I’m still alive. Don’t wait until I’m gone to tell me how you feel. If I’ve done something wrong or right let me know. So what do you want people to say about you? I want them to say that I cared about them and encouraged them. That when they were down I lifted them up. I just want people to say that I care about them and was there. So what do you want people to say about you?
What is the new normal now? I mean I remember what life was like before the pandemic. Now we have some people who have been vaccinated and some who haven’t. We have a new variant out that is killing and putting people back in the hospital. So what is the new normal? To wear a mask or not to wear a mask that is the question. I’m not going to lie I move differently now. Even though I’m fully vaccinated this is my new normal. I don’t want to be in crowds anymore. There are people who don’t care about getting other people sick. It just feels like a reckless time. So what now? Will there be more variants? How are we to live our lives? So what is the new normal? I guess it’s whatever you make of it really.
Have you ever wanted to understand the world more? Understand why people believe what they believe. Why they don’t look at the world differently? Am I the only one who is interested in this? As I’m learning people better I’m getting a sense that the words of wisdom that they have heard from older people are taking shape in their lives. But what about this new generation? I’m telling you I feel like they are so lost. Is it because parents are not interested in raising kids anymore? Is it because of social media/ cell phones? Have you ever tried having a conversation with these young people? They would rather text or send you emojis. What happened to the good old grandma talks? Why do people care about climate change more than others? Why do the rich not want the poor to succeed? So many questions but not enough answers. I have noticed that people like to debate more than having a conversation about understanding each other. I may not like who you voted for but I will hear you out on why you did and not make you feel bad about it. I want to know so much. Is it wrong? I just like to understand other people’s views and thoughts. Just thinking out loud I guess.
