I am normally a happy person that likes to think of myself as peaceful and loving with a kind heart and gentle soul. Alas, current events have me questioning myself, suspecting everyone, and trusting almost no one. I hate that I am accused of being systemically racist and living a life of white privilege even though nothing could be further from the truth.
There are many elephants in my room.
Sadness, boredom, and even a bit of depression lurk in the recesses of my daily life. I say this with the knowledge that I was mostly prepared for the multiple SHTF events that have occurred this year. That said, I was not and am not immune to the long-lasting effect of being locked down in social isolation.
This is not the way I want to live this chapter of my life and I suspect many of you do not as well.
A popular podcaster that I follow likes to remind us that if things are not right in your world, do something. Don’t sit on your bum fretting, but act. Talk. Open yourself to discussion and, like I said, do something.
And that, my friends, is the topic for today.
