Passion Party #298 - The Tyranny of The New

Our society is obsessed with New
It must be cutting edge
The New New Thing
Next year's model
The latest, the greatest
New and Improved.

But some things do not need improvement
like a hug because you care
or a Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends
Sometimes we don't need
to be on "the bleeding edge"
to feel alive and worthwhile.
I can let go of the "new"
and wear my old comfortable slippers
with the hole in the heel.
I will ignore the Tyranny of New
and focus instead on being authentic.
