Just for today, I’m unwilling to listen to noise about the new normal.
In normal times, most of us forget we’re even there.
We’re on autopilot and rarely give normal a second thought until a new normal wants to take over.
First, we protest. Then we problem-solve and adjust….over and over again.
That’s what we do and humans are really, really good at it.
We are natural-born problem solvers. And you could say, we take normal for granted until it’s gone.
Taking things for granted may seem like a harsh term…. especially at a time when people are searching for security and stability.
But step-by-step we know how to connect, share, problem solve and make change happen.
It takes focus and energy. And sometimes…. it takes an intervention.
Still, it seems important to remind ourselves.
Because it’s easy to forget the miracles and the smallest normals that make our lives extraordinary.
You swallow about 2,000 times a day or once every 30 seconds on average….
Blink about 14,000 times per day and touch your face 16 times per hour, on average.
All virtually invisible to us….
until we try not to blink, swallow….
or touch our face.
