While it is easy to get caught up with fake news and what is going on in the country, it is healthier to concentrate on more positive things. Don’t worry yourself about what the government does because one way or the other it will be resolved. Don’t be caught up in the media frenzy on a multitude of topics because you will just worry yourself into a frazzle as my Granny would say.
Start this year off with making the best of you. Regardless of what other people say you can still have fun with family and friends and do it safely. You can still learn new things with online learning, yes even you Granny! You can get involved in online groups of special interest to you. Try a new hobby. Staying busy is very important. Your children and particularly teenagers need to stay involved so they don’t get caught up in radical groups/gangs and head down an undesirable path.
This will not last forever. Life will go on. My niece just got engaged and now has something wonderful to look forward to and something we as members of her family look forward to sharing.
While we may have to wear masks in certain circumstances, contrary to what some people think, it does not have to control your life. When the whole world watched as protestors and riotors stormed the streets maskless….no remarks were made about that but recently while viewing pictures of a family’s Christmas portrait I noticed there were numerous negative comments that were so vicious they are not worth repeating. Some of these people even call themselves Christians (of course they are not if they can do such things). Keep in mind everyone is trying very hard to exist. The unnecessary attacks of people against other people will just make it harder for anyone to function.
Everyone just needs to agree to disagree and let it go. Whether I come into contact with someone who is wearing a mask or someone who does not…. I don’t judge! God gave us free will! Be respectful to others when you are out and about and online. Their choice may not be yours but it is still “their choice” and they have a right to make it. And yes, I have had friends that have had Covid but I don’t think it has changed their concept on the whole “mask” issue. Just be safe and keep your distance which is far more important than whether you choose to wear a mask or not.
Anyway, enough of that. For my personal new year goals, I want to give more, learn more and experience more of life. I will not let my age or anything else deter me from enjoying life.
Be safe but more importantly BE HAPPY!
