So, the world attempting to get back to normal, at least that is the phrase I keep hearing from people around me, over and over. I overhear others having a conversation among themselves saying things are finally getting back to normal.

My question is, what specifically is this “normal” people are talking about? And do we really want to get “back” to what was or maybe, just maybe, we can build something better?

It appears to me that normal is suffering, stress, resistance and the voices shouting “you are supposed to do your life like this” then they point out the many ways we “should” be, in order to be, like them.

Normal is simply an opinion

Whether held by one or more people, who have decided their way is right, and the rest of the planets people are wrong.

I would prefer we get back to natural. Natural is living, expressing, and allowing whatever it is within you to be expressed openly and, well, naturally.

I am naturally a friendly, outgoing person who wishes people an amazing day at every opportunity. What is natural for me is to laugh, play and have fun in everyday adventures; to not take life’s events so seriously to cause drama and stress.

Life is but a dream

My favorite song is Row, Row, Row your boat and my favorite song lyric is the heading here.

Understanding this has given me the freedom to simply be me, authentically and naturally.

I recall a line I heard Will Smith say in an interview many years ago; “I know who I am and what I want to gift the people of our planet. What you do with that is your business, what I do with that is my business; it's just that simple.”

I have searched for my right label, looked for the right place and group to fit into, the right way to “be” in the world only to find that alas, there are far too many opinions of what is normal to try to live up to while continuing to deny the authentic, free self to emerge, express, and simply “be”.

I have spent most of my life attempting to be what many have said I should be according to their opinion of what is normal, and in this, I have created more suffering, anxiety, self-loathing than most can imagine.

The truth is each of us is born, to simply “be”. Not what any other person on the planet says we should be, no, we are born to be our authentic self, our natural self. Expressing, laughing, dancing and simply creating a magical adventure called life.

We are creators of the reality we experience. Ask, and it will be given, seek and we will find; if we look for the evil in someone, or the world, we are sure to find it. The same is true when we look for the good.

What do you look for in the world?

Let us all help the world get back to what is natural by allowing others to be that which they have come here to be, their natural and authentic self, expressing in the way that makes them feel most alive, contributory, and free on the planet.

There is no normal, no right and wrong way to live, there is only the natural expression of each soul to fully become what ever it is that is trying to emerge from within.

Toss normal and all the stress, anxiety and suffering that accompany the actions of trying to be normal, directly out the window and choose to be natural.

Choose to “be you”

The people that matter don’t mind, and the people that mind, simply do not matter; if they do not support you in “being” and fully expressing your natural authentic self, they are the ones who are stuck in a set of long outdated beliefs and constructs; they are stuck in the “normal” loop, and that, is not natural.

This week, I wish you everything wonderful you can imagine; getting out of your own way and allowing what is natural to express will improve not only your own adventure but also the lives of everyone you encounter.

Let’s give normal the boot, and get back to natural…

Thank you so much for reading and commenting in Your Weekly Reset, You are appreciated my friends.

My life has been a chaotic mess for the past 5 years, from losing my job during a Workers Comp Claim and receiving no compensation, to being forced into a disability pension with spinal conditions, now I am going through a divorce, I don't get to see my son, forced into selling the house I bought prior to my marriage, having difficulties in purchasing a replacement home or finding a cheap rental as the real estate market has gone crazy here, and finding out I may lose a portion of my pension.

Life doesn't seem very promising for me at the moment, I recently came out to my family and friends, the result being rejection by everyone who claimed to love me and having my brother yell at me and knock me down, the exception is my lovely sister who continues to love me unconditionally.

This all sounds unbelievable yet it is all very real and true, all this and in the middle of a Pandemic, yet I still want to help people and try to stay positive, some people say I am crazy, I tend to agree with that assessment.

I'm not looking for any sympathy...I don't want an easy life, just the strength to endure a difficult one.

Sarah Sierra 🙂

Wholly Sweetie; after several suicide attempts and having started over from having everything taken away through 3 divorces, two bankruptcies, over a decade of cocaine/booze and various other abuses, I completely believe you and totally get what you're saying here.

I have lost and regained my faith in humanity more times than I can count lol and yet,
I have decided on the, who and how I choose to be, on this planet for as long as there is breath left in my body.

I refuse to allow those who are unaware to bully me into submission. I refuse to allow anyone or anything outside me to control my thoughts, feelings and actions.

I believe that people show us who "they" choose to be, and all I have to do is decide if I want them in my circle or not; most of time not, and I don't care about blood lines lol, people are people first and family second in my mind.

And as I have learned to simply be me, unashamed, unapologetic and unwaveringly kind, less and less do those bullying abusers show up.
In other words, the more "I say I love me" and really generate those feelings inside, the more others outside me do as well.

The more I choose to be crazy, kind and authentic, the better my life experience gets 🙂

You're sprouting wings Hon, you are experiencing growing pains and just so you know, you ARE succeeding. Every day, please look in the mirror and say something like this...
You really do deserve to be happy Sarah, so from now on, we're doing that by being away from things that hurt us, and being nearer to things that help us grow, regardless of what those things are...because, "I" love you...

I wish you wonderful things on, you got this!!

Namaste'
n huggles of support and appreciation for you Saah

"Normal" is every bit an illusion as gender is a societal construct. Loved loved loved this article.

Great Article Char. People being forced to conform to a perceived 'Normal' is the cause of much pain and misery in the world. We would all do well to start treating each other as we'd like to be treated, and stop forcing our prejudices onto others. Maybe it can happen. I really hope so.

It's what I imagine our world to be one day, and choose my actions based on that these days Natasha.

I used to feel so apologetic to others for being here on the planet but, now, I own the space I stand on and choose to make my comfort as or more important than theirs. I feel joy expressing and allow them to experience the natural outcome of their choice,,,

What's most fun to me is,,,as I practice this imagining, the more people just speak to me as ma'am and she and honey I don't change my voice; I used to sing haggard songs for a living hahaha

Thank you for sharing some light Hon, you are appreciated my dear!
Namaste'
n huggles Natty 😉
