I feel like I have been completely MIA from so many people and even from the web world. It’s been a little over three months since I’ve been back from the beautiful country, England. Something about that place though has simply swept me into a whole other world of life, its either because it was my first time alone in a different kind of place or just because the UK was so perfect from good ‘ole North Carolina.
I think I’ve had a blank new post opened on my browser for over a week now and I still have no clue what I should write about.
I’m back at my normal life style of planning weddings and events for people, going to classes, watching films on Friday…but there are a few things that have changed itself– I feel I have lost a slight connection between myself and other people, those people may be my friends, my family or just the strangers I come across on a day-to-day basis. I feel like there is this crazy amount of negativity from people that I used to be apart all my life before June 24, 2014 and when I came back home on July 24, 2014, I started to notice this negative energy from everyone and it is not very appealing to me. I pass on a smile to strangers I walk by and I get a grin back, I greet a friend and they go on about how sucky everything is, I try to have a healthy conversation with people about anything and all I get is the negative parts… why has society turned into this and I am a victim, I was a huge part of this but something changed me and I can only think positive.
I get invites to parties or the same ole events I’ve been attending all my life like the State Fair, AKD (Aaj Ka Dhamaka) or Halloween on Franklin Street, but why do we repeatedly need to attend these things over and over again… are they really fun or are we just going to post a few pictures on Facebook to show the world that we are part of this AWESOME social lifestyle?
Instead, I am using my time to read a new article, to write new ideas (which are very little at the moment) but some small idea may lead to a bigger one. I am using my time to learn how to cook exclusive recipes. where before finding me in the kitchen was a dreadful task, I am actually trying to understand what the teacher is teaching me in class instead of just filling out letters A-D on a bubble sheet. I am texting people and asking them how they are doing (even though I get negative responses). I am just taking the time out to do things that I never did before, they are simple things but its a bit more exciting for me than just doing what everyone else is doing to look like I have a “fab social lifestyle”.
So that’s what’s happening with me. What’s happening with you? What are you doing different from the norm or are you just part of the norm? Sit back in your chair, gaze outside your window and think about what you can do differently in your life that may make your small negative thought into a more positive one.
