Click over to your favorite blog, and pick out the 4th and 14th words (that aren’t “the” or “an”). Drop them into this phrase:
“_____ is the new _____.”
There’s your post title. Now write!
And so without further ado I shall pop over to ....BIGFASHIONISTA's blog and (and this will be risky!) find my words!
Year is the New Accepting!
sounds a tad 'Yoda' to me.
But maybe next year could be a time to accept. A time for looking at other people and what they do that is 'different or weird' and just accepting that assuming your 'different or weird' doesn't hurt or adversely affect anyone else then maybe it should just be accepted.
It's not a human trait to accept it seems. We love to push against authority right from when we learn to talk. NO! we should proudly as toddlers. Suddenly realising that we are autonomous. And as we grow, first as sulky teens, then as new workers we are keen to resist. Why? We ask? Why should I? How dare you? You can't make me!
We hate to be told what to do, yet at the same time growing humans need guidance and help. Where do we draw a line? Should we have no rules at all? Of course not (as Monica once said in Friends "Rules control the fun") Rules can keep us safe. But they can confine too, we need a happy medium.
But what of those unspoken rules? The things we rail against that don't matter. What women wear. What time children in other families go to bed. What food we eat. How much screen time we have.
Maybe next year could be a year for just accepting? And see where we end up, like leaves in a stream...
