The month of January is celebrated as ‘Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day’. Wonder by whom?
As I read this super holiday idea, a thought crosses my mind. Can our feelings be protected by a bubble wrap so it is difficult for others to hurt us? We go about our lives inside our protective shields. No remarks penetrate, no mean faces affect us, no scoffing, no scolding reaches past the bubbles. Wonder how it would be to live like that! But then I also wonder how are own feelings would reach others.
I guess we can only bubble wrap ourselves symbolically. Now if only I can learn the art of Equanimity.
