Let 2021 be the fresh start you need that will bring hope and peace! I’m remembering all we lost in 2020 unnecessarily due to COVID, all those who lost their employment, and lost hope that help is coming.
It’s a beautiful, yet very hot, Saturday afternoon. I’m sitting with the a/c on debating on opening a bottle of wine. White wine. Specifically Chardonnay. It’s a personal favorite white wine of mine. My favorite red wine? Melbec. I’m sure just like everyone else, we’re all armchair experts in various types of alcohols and new concoctions at this point. We have managed to learn how to turn just about anything – including pickle juice – as a mixer. I’ve seen cocktails with pickle juice and whiskey. It’s gross but I understand. We’ve been in the middle of a hellish pandemic and some will soothe any way they can. No judgements.
It’s not a toxic relationship if you don’t want to be together.
I was thinking about toxic relationships and how prevalent they are. They’re so popular, in fact, they have achieved meme status on the internet. For some people, they prefer the chaos. Some do thrive in it. They actively seek out partners that drive them crazy for the emotional high. But how toxic can it be if you don’t want to be involved in the relationship?
The other day someone wished me a Happy Valentine’s Day and it made think about how warped this manufactured holiday has become. I’m sure by now you’re seeing an increase in marketing efforts to sell red roses, chocolates, hearts, and other related red things to promote coupled love. Selling a fantasy that clogs up restaurants with over inflated prices and other retailers trying to cash in on the 14th of February.
