I have always been an artsy person since I can remember; my childhood toys were brushes, easels, pastels, oils and music instruments (although the little tomboy in me also requested bikes, roller skates and video games). Within a very toxic family environment, I would spend my days creating choreographies, singing my lungs out, writing songs, but especially crafting and painting. It was a matter of evading reality, and art was the perfect escape back then.
I usually tend to write about subjects I read about, while doing my daily routine but funnily enough, this particular one showed up during meditation. Maybe somebody out there is in need of these words right now.. who knows.
These days I have been reflecting on what might be scary concepts for some people: emotions and trauma. Everything started when I caught a few symptoms of emotional imbalance in the erratic behaviour of some people on TV.
It seems that the #takeaknee movement has been very popular in social media these days, especially the exchange of words and tweets between Trump and some famous athletes.
How do I feel? I have learned that this is a phrase we usually never ask ourselves; as a habit we ask others how they are but we forget to check with our own emotions.
I know that these days, it is the norm to see post after post showing Donald Trump saying something completely ridiculous or being mocked/hated by someone; however, from the perspective of a non-American’s point of view (my humble one), I’m going to play devil’s advocate just this time —and no, I don’t think he should be President at all, in fact I don’t think he should be in any management role ever, at least not if he is in charge of people.
