OMG. It’s so ridiculous it’s comical. I don’t know if anyone has noticed that all sides have latched on to this theory. The left use it to explain monetary and power globalization. The right use it to explain global socialism and national disruption. Oh God. I’m so sick of it. This is why I don’t watch the news. I stay slightly aware of the comings and goings of politics and world events through a few media outlets and even then I recognize that most of it is pretty biased.
Here’s the thing. I really, genuinely can’t really be bothered with it. It’s not that I don’t care. These things can and may affect me but realistically what can I do? Not much. Really not much.*. It only makes me angry or sad or jaded. The best thing to do is be happy and affect change and make a difference where I can, in my immediate reality. Do I think the world is run ass backwards? Absolutely. Do I think governments are corrupt and that the pillaging of countries and land and the pitting of people against each other has led to chaos and disorder? Yep. Is there anything I can do about it? Not really. No. Not from my tiny spec of space.
Can I give the homeless guy down the street a smile and a pb&j sandwich. Yep! Can I give that person shouting in the street 5 minutes of my time and maybe some encouragement? Uhu. Can I give that person I interact with in life a genuine show that hey “I see you……. I really see you”? Even if they don’t see me. Yes. Yes I can. Not always. I’m not a machine, but I try. I try to make the world better and affect change one butterfly affect at a time right from where I am. I try to be happy and be at peace within myself and I just have to believe that counts for something.
I truly believe that when you allow yourself to be happy from within you show people how to allow themselves to be happy as well and it has a ripple affect. Definitely not of the same magnitude as the opposite seems to have but…. hey….. we can only do what we can. Our own individual bests. No one needs to be perfect. Perfect is a horrid measure to even try to achieve and good enough is just being a slacker. Best… just your best… not the run yourself ragged into the ground best. That’s just stupid. That’s not sustainable. Let’s all follow poor Melania’s quite odd, oversimplified, unquantifiable(?), and not correctly defined lead here and “be best”. 😝 lol. It’s just too comical not to laugh at. Sad funny. Just sad funny
A friend told me to go slow…. go slow but keep going…. you’ll get there. He’s right except I’m already here. I’m already here.
*especially when you consider that (statistically speaking) congress votes against the public majority opinion over 70% of the time in favor of special interests.
In my head
I’m not saying don’t sound the alarms
And things are just great
And no one needs to panic
I’m saying almost the exact opposite with my passivity actually
I’m saying that the city has been on fire for too long now
And the alarms have been constantly ringing
And all I can do is what I am doing
To make it through this ordeal.
if no one wants to believe that war
Drugs (most legal and some illegal)**
then I don’t know what to say
It’s a mad mad world people
The business of killing ourselves
And each other
is in full bloom
And how do I counteract something as evil as that?
With all the love I can muster
At any given time. Lol
It’s funny but true
“addicted to love” – Robert Palmer
Except not just sexual love
It kind of turned into all love
at some point
Or started to
and never stopped
I should say. Lol
**After all things like fentanyl and some of these potent drugs like (synthetic) Anthrax, glycosides, exotic diseases that were scientifically created. 🤷🏽♀️😢
