Our New Normal

Normal!?! Exactly what does normal mean?

Merriam-Webster defines normal this way: conforming to a type, standard, or regular pattern, characterized by that which is considered usual, typical, or routine.

Two words in that definition stands out to me

  1. Usual

  2. Routine

Over night our "usual" and "routine" changed drastically and has not got back to what we considered normal. For example, lets talk face mask.


What we were use to.

Those who work in a medical field or those who immune system is weak, would be the only ones we would see with face mask.

Our new normal.

Every where we look everyone (suppose to be everyone) is wearing a face covering


What we were use to.

Before leaving the house for school, work, shopping, etc. we will check and make sure we look good, grab our keys and money.

Our new normal.

We still do all that, now we have an extra step, grab your mask. I know that doesn't seem like a big change. But, have you walked into a store without a mask on? I have and boy did i get dirty looks. Now I keep one in the car.

So it seems like our "NORMAL" our "USUAL" our "ROUTINE" for now is wearing face coverings in public. So why not make it fun and cute.

Please keep in mind that regular cotton face mask does not protect the wearer, it protects other people. So if we all do our part and wear a face covering we can all be protected.

Time to hear from you! Whats your thought on "Our new normal"?
