It is funny looking back at how life was before COVID. Is it just me, or was everyone operating at such an unhealthy fast pace? I didn’t notice it before, it was the norm- but after a while you give so much of yourself, and feel like energy sucking leeches are sucking a life source out of you. It was exhausting. During COVID, and being forced to take a step back it made you look at the world differently. In-spite of the heartbreaking effects of COVID, it allowed people to take a step back and re-evaluate their lives. It is strange to look at how businesses and companies had taken so much of peoples muchness for such little amounts. Being able to stand back and say “hey- I can’t keep this pace anymore” seems to be a trend- the burn-out is a real thing. I had coffee today with a good friend and we discussed how some of these life changes will affect and effect the world. I think she was onto something with a “new age or a social renaissance.” Maybe there will be a new era, maybe a personal enlightenment with established boundaries where the people will flourish along with businesses? Who knows. One thing I do know for sure though, the way the world used to operate feels like a thing of the past- what is to come, will be interesting to watch it unfold.
