“…normalizing the abnormal causes the spirit,
which would normally leap to correct the situation,
to instead sink into ennui, complacency, and eventually…blindness.”
-- Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés in Women Who Run With the Wolves
I'm really not a very politically focused person. Politics tend to sadden and upset me because I see so much corruption and abuse in that system; therefore, I try to avoid the topic as much as possible. However, the impending election less than a month away and the responses of our general populace have me doing a whole lot of soul searching and hard thinking.
Last Friday morning, I woke up with more election thoughts running rampant through my head. The thoughts were of the insane phenomenon I am witnessing and the wish that others would also take notice and rise up against it. At the same time, I was reminded we are all so very unique with different ways of viewing things and understood my perception of the current state of affairs can greatly differ from someone else's. Yet, I have this blog and will continue to write about important topics and offer different ideas and viewpoints that may bring people to rethink before blindly following the masses in any area of life. While I share this point of view reluctantly, I also feel an extremely urgent leading to do so.
