I woke up early Saturday morning with all of this just pouring out of me, so bear with me as I establish a little change of pace just for today.
I can’t pretend that something as trivial as another outfit of mine is more important than putting these thoughts out there + all of the terrible things going on in this world. Don’t worry, I’m not going to get all politically or anything, but if you’ve already got a bad vibe on where this is going, I won’t be upset if you turn back now.
Today, it just doesn’t feel appropriate for me to talk about anything superficial with another news flash of something horrific happening consistently, day after day. I try to put myself out there as a fun, happy, sometimes silly, uplifting person in this dark world and it just isn’t enough. I am so confused as to how we got here. Why violence seems to be the only answer to any issue we might have. I simply can’t wrap my mind around it.
Currently, the journey our country and world are on only continues to fade unto a darker and far more divided path than ever before. When all I wish for is enough of us to stand up and just spread kindness + love to every corner of the earth. I think more than anything else it pains me to think about what type of world my son will exist in when everything right now is so merciless and he is barely two years old. What will it be like in five, ten, twenty years from now? An answer to which I am hopeful will someday be a positive one.
Of a few things I am absolutely sure. I will always show and teach my son love. To warmly love everyone. Remembering and reminding that none of the details of other people’s lives affects how we choose to love and accept them for who they are, plain and simple. That’s what’s important and more than ever, seemingly what this depraved world needs.
So, that’s it. That’s what I’m serving up today. A slice of vulnerability, with a full side of love, compassion + a pinch of sadness. If you are reading this and feel as convicted as I do on the subject, I challenge you to spread around a little extra kindness today and everyday.
