Let’s Be Sensible

The Logical Heart Knows Best

There’s always paradox and irony, like a trickster theme in life, at least I’ve noticed it in mine. I finally have time and money, but I don’t feel well and there’s a pandemic, so I’m constrained for a bit. I have all of this opportunity and space to be able to explore and learn, but not able to fully just yet.

Surrender, acceptance and patience.

Must need more practice in these, lol. I’m deciding to just be thankful and appreciate the little things and keep staying home, wearing my mask when I’m out for walks and groceries. Sending my love to everyone, hoping for the best?

It’s strange how people are protesting measures that have kept more people from dying. Everything that has transpired surrounding the coronavirus has been even more eye-opening than the Trump presidency. So much coming to the surface in our world/society that I had no idea was there, wow.

It’s amazing that we are able to function as cohesively as we do. With all of the divisiveness and belief in harmful, made-up things, many people living in their own invented worlds that are more like dystopian fiction or wishful thinking. I wonder how we can see the world so massively differently from others.

How do we ever come together on anything then? How do we make it work for the highest good of all if we can’t even have a foundation of basic, objective facts? And who gets to decide the value of a life? Do we have the right to risk the lives of others by our actions or inactions? So many ethical dilemmas we’re facing now’s our opportunity to address and solve them.

I was so impressed by the health care workers here in Denver who stood up to the protesters. After all, the health care workers have the burden and the trauma of caring for those struggling for their lives from the virus. They may find themselves having to fight to save the lives of some of those protesters in the upcoming weeks, due to the protester’s disregard, entitlement, and negligence. It’s so disappointing. Oh well, the rest of us will abide by the recommendations because we care and want the best outcomes for us all. The fewer lives lost the better. It makes sense to me.

So we’re in for some interesting months ahead with no real end in sight, so might as well make the best of it and do the responsible thing and consider how our actions impact others. I want us to stay alive, as many of us as possible. What’s so difficult about that? It’s common sense.

Apparently common sense is in short supply these days, lol!

Stay safe!
