Share Your World – 12/11/19

It’s been a long time since I shared my world with Melanie or all of you – now seems to be a good time to jump in.

What is truth? (Credit to Ursula https://anupturnedsoul.wordpress.com/2019/12/05/which-side-of-the-mirror-are-you-on/I’m not sure I know these days – we hear so little of it anymore. What I am sure of is that my truth and your truth may well differ. We are so overly sensitive anymore and take offense so readily, it’s hard to speak honestly – maybe that’s why truth is so elusive.

What’s one thing people would never know about you just by looking at you? Wait, while I go ask someone. I can’t answer this. Perhaps it would be that I dabble in so many different arts and crafts. I know a bit about many things, not a lot about any one thing. I’m opinionated – I don’t think you can tell that my looking at me.

Do loud noises bother you? Yes. A lot. I prize quiet.

If you were guaranteed the correct answer to just one question, what would you ask? What will happen next to our world? No – not that. Instead, I’d like to know if we’re going to survive this political holocaust and the division we are currently experiencing.

Watching the news last night, a ranting blog post was formulating in my brain. I did not act upon it, and the words have filed themselves away for now, but one question I had last night remains – and haunts me. How is it that one man in the Senate can decide not to bring to a vote a proposed healthcare bill the House presented? How is it one man – whether it be the majority leader of one of the houses of Congress  or the President – has so much individual power? Is this the way it was meant to be? I think not.

Maybe that rant didn’t go away completely.

I wish you enough during the rush of this holiday season.

  1. Carol — I prize quiet, too. And I agree with your term “political holocaust.”

  2. Thanks Carol, for Sharing Your World. It’s not perfect right now, not by a long chalk and things going forward seem pretty grim. BUT. Maybe it won’t be as awful as everyone is picturing…the Cheetoh COULD have a fatal stroke or heart attack. That’s be okay with me.

    How is it that one man can try to remove a president that 63,000,000 people voted for… Politics are a really dirty business. I don’t care what party it is. Wish death on anyone is just wrong.

      It is not just one man trying to remove that president, the president that has torn our country apart with his rudeness, lack of compassion, narcissism. Let me remind you that that president was NOT elected by the majority of the people in this country.

    For most, the idea of Absolute Truth doesn’t exist. We live in a culture that panders to the idea of doing “whatever is best for you” and “believing whatever you want.” But where does that leave us when your “truth” and my “truth” are at opposite ends of the spectrum? People used to believe in objective truth but morals are all over the board now that relativism is the new religion. As for our political mess, it appears House Democrats are experiencing the same frustration Republicans did in 2013-14 when the Democratic held Senate led by Senator Harry Reid blocked a series of conservative bills presented by the Republican-controlled House. Is it right? No. But that’s tit-for-tat partisan politics that seems to now be the norm. I’m trying very hard to NOT rush this Christmas season. So far, it’s not working as well as I’d like! xoxoxo

    I think our partisan politics are going to be the downfall of this country. Along with our hypersensitivity, which causes us to get up in a dither about things that really aren’t worth it We need to learn to just chill (see how hip I am? Except that phrase is probably out of style now). Maybe, while we’re chilling, we could think about honesty and truth and kindness and tolerance, and all of those other words we’re not practicing these days.
