By Amy S. Hilliard A lot has been written lately about Quiet Quitting, the #Soft Life, and women losing ambition as we have gone through the pandemic and seen COVID change the way we live and the priorities we used to hold dear.

Live, for how long?!?
Do you want to live forever?
Would I want to live forever? Forever is a very long time, longer than I could even imagine.
I think my answer would have to be, no, not unless my body stayed the same physical health and condition it is now (or better) and all those that I love, lived forever too.
It would be a long sad and lonely eternity if I was off bad health and had no friends and family in an ever moving and evolving world.
Just think how much has changed in yours, and your parents or even your grandparents lifetimes. All that new technology they’ve needed to learn and keep up with.
Forever is a lot longer than the number of years you and they’ve lived – gosh how many incredible yet confusing changes would you have to learn, understand and master.
I am not shocked by bad language but…..
I’m not shocked by the occasional swear word in a conversation, or when a person is hurt or in shock.
What I don’t understand is the need to add these words all the time, and on to things like mugs, t-shirts, etc…. just for the sake of it because its thought funny or clever.
Kids will come across these words naturally, why should they be surrounded by them all the time? They always used to be saved for when appropriate, but now they are just thrown liberally into any type of conversation. Why?
Is this due to a general lack of vocabulary knowledge, and people don’t know there are many other more words that they could use jn those situations?
Is it just that people consider them impressive and clever to use?
Core values of respect and responsibility also apply to how we speak with/to others, as well as how we treat each other. I, like you, use swear words. I do try to take the individual situation into account as much as possible. No, I don’t always get it right, but we can all try.
