my thoughts for today
*this post is my thoughts on Covid-19, and the vaccines, and living my life…
Them: “You won’t be able to attend a concert or sporting events.”
Me: “I don’t mind.”
Them: “You can’t go to a large shopping mall.”
Me: “I’ll survive.”
Them: “You can’t drink at the bar.”
Me: “I no longer drink.”
Them: “You can’t enter night clubs.”
Me: “I have no interest in doing so.”
Them: “We’ll tell your employer.”
Me: “I’m self-employed.”
Them: Your employer won’t let you work.”
Me: “I’ll find one that will.”
Them: “You can’t be in the city.”
Me: “I prefer being out in nature.”
Them: “You can’t go to McDonald’s or Burger King.”
Me: “I haven’t in years anyway.”
Them: “You can’t eat in restaurants.”
Me: “I’ll order takeout.”
Them: “You can’t shop at large grocery stores.”
Me: “I’ll grow my own food and buy from local farmers.”
Them: “You can’t be part of mainstream society.”
Me: “I already checked out.”
Them: “Your kids can’t go to school.”
Me: “I’ll homeschool.”
Them: “You’ll be on your own.”
Me: “I’m surrounded by family and friends and all the people reaching the same conclusion all over the world.”
Them: “You can’t choose for yourself.”
Me: “I just did.”
Them: “What can we tempt you with?”
When they have nothing you want, they have no power.
And that’s when power comes to the people.
Hope you have a great day!

*copied off of Facebook…I feel like my whole life has been preparing me for this. From the cancer, to raising my son as a single parent (not a single mom), to staying home and learning to do things around the house, property. I could’ve moved out any time, but at the same time I couldn’t…even though I was living with my parents – we were a three generation family – I wasn’t mooching off them. I still had to contribute, so did my son. My sister’s then boyfriend told me once I should be out living my life, “be happy”…what he didn’t know was, I was happy. I am happy! Yeah, I was taking care of my parents, first my mom, then my dad…but I wouldn’t have had it any other way! I have learned so much, much more than if I had moved far, far away.
I’m ok with no movie theaters, no restaurants, no sporting events…I haven’t done any of that in years anyway! This, this is my life. There was a time, when I would’ve said “no way!” At this point, who knows what will really happen…they are threatening to bring mask mandates back. The vaccinated people are being told to wear masks, even though they aren’t required…at the moment. Thinking about this…why would I get vaccinated, if I had to wear a mask when I go out in public? I’m unvaccinated…don’t wear a mask when I go out in public(which is rare), I mostly don’t feel uncomfortable around other people…talk of a third booster shot is going around… I’m not scared! Just the opposite…I’m prepared. Prepared for whatever, for the most part! I refuse to live in fear…
to live a life
others do not
My whole life has been different, not what I expected it to be…I haven’t lived the life others thought I should live. That’s part of what makes me, me! Because my life has been different, I’ve learned to do things my own way. Even my boyfriend knows that now.
hope you have a great day!
