Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
I have reading about, heard about and even use the sentence “the new normal” my self,- but I’m not sure what “the new normal” is.
When I look around I see people struggling, people losing works and income, people losing their homes, their families, friends, their future, their hopes and dreams. It’s sadness and emptiness, it’s worries, and people get more lonely than “ever”. It’s hungerness and hopelessness, its sadness and anger.
It’s different crisis “all over”,- private and personal as well as for the whole society.
So many people are miserable because of the different effects this corona- situation has created.
I can’t see how this can be “a new normal”.
It’s different restrictions to follow. Like distance, use of mask and quarantine. And even maybe a new lock down, in some areas or even a complete lock down for some countries too.
It’s restrictions about travelling and visiting families too. Special if the families lives in different countries. It’s “red” zones, and some very few “green” zones.
The daily life for so many people has changed, turned around,- and not to the best, but with a lots of different challenges. How can this be “a new normal”?
How can distance from each other be a “new normal”? How can losing faith, hope and dreams be a “new normal”?
How can losing income, jobs and homes be a “new normal”? How can crisis of different kinds be a “new normal”?
And how can loneliness be a “new normal “? Because people get lonely in this corona- situation. The different restrictions create distance, not just because we actually and literally need to keep distance from each other, but also this restrictions for using masks create distance between us, as well as the quarantine and the losing work, income and homes does.
I don’t hope this is “the new normal”. I hope this is a situation where something new, better and stronger can grow up from.
I hope this situation, the corona- situation can be like “after the storm and rain comes the sun”. But I don’t know.
I hope that the new normal is something else and better for all of us. And not this– a society with distance and daily use of masks, quarantine and red and green zones, worries and struggles. Broken dreams and hopes. Losing family and friends, homes, work and income. I hope this is just something we need to go through before we have something better.
And I hope that the corona- situation is “just” a big bump on the road to create something new, better and stronger. But I don’t know. I know I’m not the biggest fan of “the new normal” that are in our society at the moment. And I know it don’t and doesn’t feel like this is a “new normal” for me… and many other people around the world. And,- I don’t like this “new normal”.
What I do know is that the society has been through different hard times and crisis before,- and managed to create and build up something new and better after. So in one way there are hope and possibilities, but it can be very difficult to see them during the situation we all are going through at the moment.
And what I do know is that the sun is shining behind the clouds, and that the sun shows up after rainy days.
This are just some of my thoughts about this sentence “the new normal”. They are not correct and they are not wrong. They are just my thoughts during a strange time. A corona- time.
But even it is what it is at the moment- I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡
See you soon, – I hope 💚
I’m not sure what “the new normal” is yet. But I know I’m not the biggest fan of calling what we are going through for “a new normal”. I choose to believe that after rainy days the sun will shine again 🍀.
