This year has been eye opening for me. It started off bad, took a turn for the worse, and now I’m left with disheartening views and such a bitter feeling toward this country and the people living in it. It’s unfortunate but everything happens for a reason.
I usually speak my mind no matter what. Always. But lately I’ve been taking a step back a bit to observe what’s going on around me. Seeing with my own eyes how people are treating others and how they use words to sadly show their true colors. The lack of understanding and empathy out there is pretty sad. And I don’t want any part of it.
I tell myself, this is NOT okay. This is NOT fine. So I tune it out because I can’t have that crap in my life. I know I cannot change the world. But I can create how I want my life to be by living MY truth. And in doing that I release positive energy into the world around me. That is how you birth change.
My happiness allows more love and kindness to bloom around me. And isn’t that what we need most? Personally, I am so over a lot of shit going on in the world. But all I can do is move forward because life doesn’t just stop. We can pause for a bit to rest… but we must get back up. Nothing changes if you stand still too long. And change is essential.
