So the big question is are you ready for 2021. A simple yes/no answer, right? If only all the negative of 2020 would go away when we flip the calendar… If only it would mean…
Bet you could add a few words to finish off that lead in sentence. I’d love nothing more for you to put your yes or no in the comment block and if you want to complete the incomplete sentence “If only it would mean…” I’m interested in reading what you have to say.
I have been giving my insomniac nights to thinking about “normal” and what it means. The hope for “normal” looms within all of us. To be honest, I don’t know if “normal” as we knew it can ever be again or if it should. Going through something like a pandemic alters us. The way we handle isolation, masks, and distancing has an impact on who we are. Perhaps reflecting on 2020 will give you insights into how you handle fear and anxiety and depression, if this is how you have reacted. If you found yourself angry at all the restrictions, did you display it constructively? Or did you blame, act out, or justify negative feelings and actions by responding illegally?
I believe the “normal” we will live once all the negative of 2020 is only a memory and chapter in a history book, will not be the “normal” we knew. We have changed and will continue to change. I would certainly hope for the majority our individual change will be positive for humanity and community. The “normal” we let happen even before 2020, is not the normal I want to go back to.
Being creative in nature, I would love to represent your responses in fabric. I’m not sure how, but it will come to me. If you would like to be listed as a thought contributor behind the representation, please let me know.
Email or message me if you would not like your response published.
Thank you in advance for giving your thoughts and feelings a place to be appreciated.
