Once again, this is not the first post I’ve written today. I tried two other topics and several versions of each. It just doesn’t seem to be the right time for those ideas and words to come together.
I’ve decided that this is my thought for the day.
I don’t know if the world as we know it is on the verge of imminent collapse…the very fabric of our society torn beyond redemption. I don’t know for sure what’s going to happen tomorrow or next week or…..
I do know that I choose to live in hope. That may seem like denial or avoidance to some. I don’t really need to know either way. Please don’t feel a need to comment on my failure as a human being because I’m not “taking action” right this minute. I’m okay with my choice for today. There are things about me that I would like to improve…I work at it every day. That’s why there is an “intentional life” tag on my blog sidebar.
Today, I am choosing to be optimistic. I am done with listening to rhetoric about the impending rise of a Hitleresque society. And yes, I do know a little something about that period in history. As a matter of fact, I did know someone who was there…pretty well as a matter of fact. I just feel that the terms are being tossed about lightly and without a true understanding of their meaning by some.
I’m not an idiot. I know things aren’t great right now. They also weren’t “great” 6 weeks ago or a year ago. I understand that it’s about more than happiness or contentment. There are real issues.
I’m just not choosing to live in fear over everything that might happen or could happen. In my opinion, that’s sort of a crazy way to live. It would make me crazier anyway.
So, unless you have some inside information from a reliable source…God, for instance, I’m going to go continue my life with it’s laundry, dishes, art projects, and dog hair.
And for my evening entertainment (since I am home alone and the TV remote is mine) I shall watch a cheesy movie about “the” big earthquake that takes out California. Then maybe a good zombie move. I find it helpful to pick up life survival tips with this type of research.
And just in case, everybody else is right and the world is ending, I’m going to eat the last donut in the box because my weight won’t matter.
