In honor of Yule and the return of the light:  Finding light in the darkness

Nice post. I think many people will find that comforting and helpful.
For myself it feels that those who have faced the darkness in whichever way and however they found support ( even when they feel like failures for what they've gone through [for it's easy to not see how strong you really are being] ), have also shown a great inner strength which that hardship has revealed.

So I took a bit of a break what with getting ready for the season, but here's my next post on how kindness to others benefits ourselves in return ( https://musinghouse.home.blog/2020/12/26/the-strategy-of-kindness/ )

Very much so. I've followed up with another one on weakness vs strength and how we as a whole often just categorise people as weak or strong instead of realising we are all both.

This is one of those things where in my heart I think this is the way to go...but I also think that too many people have been raised (by parents and/or society) to believe that everything is finite and limited and if you have something it means I can't have it, so if I want to have things I have to deny them to other people.  I think we need a huge level of re-education and new ways of thinking to realize that this type of approach is vastly flawed (especially when taken to the "I need all the things, and I will hoard them and not share, just in case I ever need them, and I don't care if you are literally starving and my food is starting to rot...because I'm scared if I give it to you I won't have enough someday."

Very much so. I've followed up with another one on weakness vs strength and how we as a whole often just categorise people as weak or strong instead of realising we are all both.
https://musinghouse.home.blog/2020/12/28/weak-strong/

I take a leadership approach to this:  we are all different, and one person's strength is another person's weakness, so find each person's strengths and play to those, and let other people help you where you are weak.  The problem is that so many people don't want to admit they are weak in any way, and so when it is pointed out, they feel compelled to push back, to prove how much stronger they are (in whatever way they are strong) and completely refusing to acknowledge they have any weakness at all.

Okay, I might be a bit cynical about people right now...

This week, I decided to write about taking a different approach to the new year.  New Year, clean slate...  Sometimes it's not about being better than we were, but rather being able to set aside what isn't working and start fresh.

I've also found that resolutions don't work. I've found the choosing a focus idea works well.
I was struggling for ideas on what to post next when I came across some pretty strong facebook items by Covid deniers and saw a little red. So this post is on the logic of why Covid wouldn't be a big hoax.

For those careworkers struggling and those who're hurting right now - you aren't alone. People still see you, care about you and support you.

I know Perdita, scary isn't it.
I've actually met someone, last year, who was convinced that it was all a fake created by aliens as part of their plot to take over the world ( yes, they were serious. Although it also gave them an excuse to keep working without saftey concerns )

I've seen things (didn't hang onto any cites and don't recall now if they were news reports from reliable sources or FB posts) indicating that there are people denying it exists while dying of it. Presumably they realize, if not that they're dying, at least that they're very sick; I have no idea what it is they believe they're sick with.

Humans are rationalizing animals, not rational ones. (Paraphrase of a quote I picked up long ago and have no clue who it's from.)

It's absolutely crazy isn't it.
You're quite right but sometimes it seems so much safer and easier not to believe in truth.

Anyway, my next post is about looking back on childhood dreams and the light they bring -

I think the ability to see the magical in every day things is one of those things that keeps people hopeful...and we definitely need a lot of that right now.  It's funny, I know a few people who find it hard to 'stop' and 'do nothing', but when you really look at their life it's because they don't have personal hobbies...they define themselves by their jobs or the people around them and when they are alone without an assigned task it's like they don't know what to do with themselves.  There are also people who just get caught up in the momentum, they have been doing stuff for so long that when the scripted stuff ends it's like they suddenly have too many choices and can't figure out what to do.  I'm in the third category, I have waaaay more things I want to do then time, so sometimes I falter in narrowing the field, in picking the things I most want to do and not wasting time on other things.

And ugh Covid deniers, I just can't.  I've seen some who think the whole thing is a US government conspiracy, like somehow our government is SO powerful they have taken over global media (and social media) to create this whole smokescreen....for reasons.  *sigh

I wrote a bit about my current reboot and how that differs from simply going back to basics.
