So this morning I committed a decent amount of energy to positing my Thursday Thought before heading out for my day. Yes, I said Thursday.
It wasnâ€™t until 3hrs, later during a brief interlude in my morning commitment, that I saw a message from one of my cousins saying,
Itâ€™s Wednesday, why is your Thursday Thought up?One of my Tribe
Oh da shame! My response,
Whoops! Itâ€™s Wednesday (multiple laugh emojis)
Iâ€™m just TOOOOOO organized at the mo!
Then came the quick weighing up of whether or not to take the post down and repost tomorrow. However, I chose to just embrace my mistake and added an *update* to the postâ€™s caption; which ended with, â€œ…I blame the new normal, and it must surely be Thursday somewhere in the world right now.â€
Although said somewhat tongue-in-cheek one of the effects of lockdown/new normal is that many of our usual parameters* or markers for both knowing what day it is, making sense of our weeks and even ourselves has been a bit askew. Many of our usual rhythms/routines went out the window during lockdown, and some of us our still slowly navigating our way through or towards new ones. Or as I am calling it â€˜new normal 2.0â€™.
I think in reality, there are probably still a few more incarnations of â€˜new normalâ€™ to come. Hence, I will be kind to -as well as be willing to laugh at- myself and my day confusion. As well as any other random new normal 2.0 confusions that there maybe to come! Hopefully, you will be too.
