It's a mad world, it's a good world

I remember reading once that leaders of our generation told us that the world is actually a much better place than the media circus makes it out to be. We have greater wealth thanks to the Internet, sanitation system and highway roads. Most of us have access to knowledge, new continents and a hundred ways to connect with each other. You and I are living much better than how the emperor of China used to live hundreds of years ago.

I haven't said this out loud yet, but since I've been alive I really think there is no other horrible year compared to 2020. There, I said it. I think it's true and I sure hope I'm right; that this is as worse as it gets before we all start winning and being fabulous again.

When you are a teenager you think the world is messed up; you feel a certain way about it because you know it's not your fault.

When you're nearly 36 years old and you think the world is messed up, oh boy... you definitely feel another way about the whole situation. Like, can the real adults please come takeover the situation, please... 

Month after month of bad news circulating around the world; and there is nothing as humbling as realising that mankind does not have anything under control and yet at the same time we are now forced to rely on each other for kindness, understanding and respect.

I do not pretend to understand what is happening with the riots, looting and carnage outside our country.

But I am so glad and proud to be a Malaysian; even with the whisperings and complaining about how things could be done better. I am happy, I am grateful and I am also sad.

On days like this I like listening to the Mad World on repeat on my headphones -

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races

Going nowhere, going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head, I want to drown my sorrow

No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it's a very very
Mad world, mad world

You know what's even crazier? That there is a strange hormonal drive in me to have more babies to continue mankind. BUT I won't; I am super content with being a mother to two children. So I will just go drink my chai latte, get back to reading my book and mind my own business.

God will take care of the rest.
