So I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the current state of things in The United States. The current state of all human beings on planet Earth. The easiest thing for me to do is keep myself in my little bubble. I then realize we are all on this planet at the same time, experiencing life together. This togetherness is nothing to be afraid of, it is something to embrace. We are ignoring the horrible things, or at least trying to hide them so we can pretend they aren’t happening and feel like we are alleviating ourselves of responsibility for what we are inflicting on one another. I’m sure anyone who is reading this can think of something happening right now or something they’ve done they wish they could take back or stop.
I know love makes the world go round, but lately it feels like its stopped moving entirely. We are all still here though, which is awesome. That means we still have time to be better.
Of course I’m not without fault, I’ve let my emotions get the better of me one too many times than I’d care to admit. I’ve said, done and felt things I really wish I didn’t. All there is left to do is stop myself and think through whether or not its worth the time and energy delve into those thoughts and emotions at that time. Or even at all.
