Right now, I’m kind of lost for words, and have been since yesterday. (Yes, of course we’re talking about the US election – because how could we not, right?)
Now, I’m really not going to get started on what I think of all of this – let’s just say I did shed a few tears yesterday, and they were certainly not tears of joy.
I’m not gonna lie. I’m actually scared. But as I am who I am, I need to stay positive. I need to hold on to the little bit of light that I can see. And I also know that we need to face our fears when we see them; deal with them until they no longer have any power of us.
So I keep telling myself that sometimes we need to hit rock bottom – hard – in order to rise back up.
I’ve been saying this for a while, with the state of our world being what it is, and now more than ever do I believe we have hit hard.
But we will get back up. Love will conquer. This is a moment when we cannot give up. We mustn’t give in to hate, and we mustn’t lower ourselves to standards that are not good enough – none of us. We must stay united and strong, especially through times like these.
So please join me in radiating love around yourself today. I’m letting go of the anger and disappointment inside to make room for more love – because that’s what the whole world needs. Even something as simple and relatively small like a smile can change someone else’s day, and that can create a ripple effect.
Show love to your brothers and sisters, no matter who they are, what they look like, or where they’re from. We are all in this together.
