I am sounding like my parents but when normal things are no longer normal. You have to say I miss the old days
So I will admit I miss the old days when I saw people true faces. Not ones that are covered with masks and under that mask is another mask. The irony I am experiencing these days. Actually everyone is experiencing this but for many they are just following protocols.
2020 to now is some strange years but I am actually grateful to experience this one. This is the year I am missing a normal normal day. The days when we could be in a crowd or go somewhere and not worry being looked at wrong for not wearing mask like everyone around.
The days when you don’t see people worried about getting sick. Covid 19 virus has really made this world change.
The world we loved and enjoyed is no longer what we dreamed of anymore. Many lives are changing and many lives are being taken away either by this virus or the fear of the virus.
I have a deep peace I cannot explain. A peace and calm knowing everything is going to be ok.
I am not worrying and I am not stressing because I know whatever happens Yahushua will protect me.
The World is blazing and I have found a sense of peace within I know I can not find anywhere else in life.
This peace is needed when the world can take you to the deep end of pain. This is not a time to worry, panic and find yourself in fear. This is a time of looking within and finding little joys in your life.
Taking off the news and paying attention to you. Do not miss the beauty in your life by running around hopeless and full of fear. All this time you could be missing wonderful life opportunities right in front your eyes
Stop, pause and look deep within because the peace your heart needs. Is deep within, just do not miss it.
I am just not interested in fitting in. Seriously I am just not interested any longer.
I have tried all my life to fit in a box every one tries to place by me but I just cannot fit in any. Unfortunately I cannot even try any longer I am no longer interested.
I was never interested in the first place. It was never appealing to me .
You know that box that is placed there for every one to fit in. When we get in the box we stay in the box with the walls around us. We never remember what the box looked like outside because we never came back out the box.
Well I have been in the box and out many times. Let me be honest I love being out side the box. To see every thing from a wider angle the inside is too trapped I feel clustered in it.
My experience with this box is always different every time. I go in and after a little while I realize I want to go back out wondering Why I went back in.
That box that is there for each one of us to enter with every life situation. Is like we have to step inside this box.
There are a few times I have dance around the box and walk around it. But that box is not for me to step in and stay. I have tried and failed many times. Want to hear the funny part?
I do not want to succeed staying in this box. As I have seen staying is worse than leaving this box.
That box that drains you of all your energy. That box that has many trapped by society expectations. That box that has many chained to dept. That box that has creatives believing art has to be measured by a standard.
That box that has many young people chained to generational belief. When they themselves probably had it wrong.
That box that many step in and never venture to step back out. Because they are told that the box is the answer. Not realizing once you step in and you never step out.
Do not let anyone fool you. With all the glitter and glam. If it is the one thing for sure. You never know how they got there and this statement is a powerful one for our every day lives.
We see them all over social media, showing off and making it look as if everything is all fine.
Darling, let me tell you a secret. It may not be all glitter and glam around them at all.
Within and outside of them,it can be filled with comparisons,pain,depression and high expectation from everyone around them . Each and every day trying to live up to some false expectations from others.
Social media has made us a generation of comparisons slaves. We just have to tell the world what we just accomplished and we have to take a selfie of every single thing.
We can’t keep our latest events to ourselves and we just have to show off on everyone else. We have our own selves to blame for the high rate in aniexty cases, depression and suicidal rates.
Because we have not stopped to think of the effects we are causing to one another mental health. We have added fire to the pot in creating comparisons with one another by posting everything that we get our hands on. Without thinking of the other person who may not want to see this on their feed anymore.
Sure, we can unfollow, unfriend and just ignore. But sometimes that is easier said than done. Especially if it is a close friend or worse yet family member who is just mindlessly telling everyone on the internet what they mastered again.
While we maybe taking baby steps every day and making small wins. But just not in the big way others may have it. And that my dear friends is where depression sinks in, if you are not strong enough.
Let me honest here with that one , even the “strong one” have their moments. Trust me on that one. Because life is a funny thing that we cannot take too seriously sometimes.
One of the reasons is just when we got a little control on one of our life situations. We go onto our social media profiles and find ourselves comparing our lives with many others around our same age group.
Then we begin to question ourselves. Oh,I just got a promotion that I have been working hard for , but now I am wondering maybe I am missing something
All because we went on our phones and see Lucy got engaged this weekend. And maybe you are still single or just came out a relationship. Now your no longer as excited as before because although you are happy for Lucy you can’t help but wonder.
It has all happened to us at least once. We can be at the top of our game or struggling to stay in the game.
We know we always feel this pinch and what we never know is we can come out this race.
By actually not caring what anyone even thinks.
As I said Life is a funny thing and if you take any of this too seriously you will realize.
Today religion is in a serious shake up as a Spiritual War fare is happening all the time around us. We have to be aware what is taking place in us and around us.
The battle many of us are facing is a serious one as we have to endure.
Part of the battle is questioning a lot of what have been spoon fed all our lives. As the truth comes out many of us are faced with questions. After the questions are answered we are yet again faced with more questions.
Religious leaders are modernizing a lot of their beliefs, traditions and having many churches following and becoming a stray.
Today I ask how can a church lead a flock when they do not want to follow God true word and commandments?
The Church particularly the RC churches are heading down a new road of self destruction that many like myself have been seeing and warning for years. The word is being twisted and the scandals that are faced is trying to be faced in a humanly way instead of a Spiritual way. A church that is leading many to a way we may regret later down the line.
So much have changed over the years and so much more changes is going to arrive. Many will folk out of the churches when they are trying to get more in the church buildings.
Jesus said where two or three are in my name there I am with them. A time is coming when many have to choose at the same time question where they are heading in this world as we are all facing a Spiritual warfare. Whatever we are faced with we have to ensure that Yeshua stays the center of it all.
Question the church and all the new changes they want to bring on board. Question why they want to make these changes and keep those in prayers who are standing up for justice and truth.
This is the time. Many have warned us about many years ago.
Let us be aware of what is taking place and do not be afraid of asking questions.
