So, I guess it’s song lyric week on baileydailey. But here we go …
If you’ve been a long-time baileydailey reader, you know that I commute on the train. And I see people doing everything:
Listening to music/podcasts, putting on make up, perusing magazines, reading books, talking to their neighbors, playing games on their phones, typing up reports, writing posts on social media, shopping online.
But do you know what I don’t see? At all? Anyone doing nothing at all. Just being. Just being human beings.
Actually, I see it so infrequently that people get weirded out if I’m not doing something. If I’m just sitting, looking out the window, people don’t sit next to me. Like I might just strike up a conversation, goodness forbid. Like I’m a leper for not staring at my phone. Like a normal human being should.
So, here’s your friendly reminder to just be. Be a human. And don’t worry about doing something every moment of every day. You have my permission to just be alive.
