I know that I always try to find some inspiration in everyday things to pass along for my readers but wow, sometimes life is exhausting.
I’m tired of angry people.
I’m tired of paranoia to the point where everyone is suspect in some non existent crime of corruption.
I’m tired of people so callous about the natural world around them that they would destroy the breeding habitat of endangered birds instead of power washing the building when they leave their nests at the end of the season. Whose weekly commentary is about getting rid of the birds. They should see it as a privilege to have them there and take a few minutes to watch them.
I’m tired of policy changes that do not take into consideration the lives that are affected without any input from them. Changes in policies they know nothing about but because they see themselves in positions of power, they feel a need to micromanage things that have worked for decades. Stop, just stop. Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes before making a knee jerk decision based on someone’s anonymous complaint.
I watched the trailer for the new movie coming out about Fred Rogers called “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and wept at what we have lost. I think there are so many fears, so much anger that people have lost sight of the fact that our world would be a better place if they were kind.
Try to be kind, you have no idea what the people you talk to today are going through, a kind word can go a long way.
