Room For Us All

The internet and the world are so blehhhhh right now.  So much sadness and angst, wrongness and injustice, chaos and confusion.  I am sick, like many of you are too, I'm sure.  What can we do?  Is there one correct means to take?  Of Course!!!....Not.  Life ain't that easy, my peaches.

It's times like this I lean on simpler things like:
-loving a little harder to my peoples including but not limited to extra daily bear hugs from my bub
-getting down on their level and hugging my pups more often
-taking in suns setting and moons rising with more appreciation
-baking banana squash bread in the middle of the afternoon
-praying more throughout the day, talking to God out loud, looking for direction this way
-wearing two neon colored flowers in my hair at a time
-smiling at random strangers and saying hello as we pass by
-cucumber water. Could be the stress of our world, could be the 100 degree temps.  Utterly refreshing
-social media step-aways. Now, I work in social media but I absolutely believe in digital detoxing
-reading a fun, light summertime based fiction book. I mean, is there anything better than that syncing of story and season?

I'm not an airhead and I don't aim to make light by listing out my Martha Stewart-esque approach to not stressing in this hurting world.  I have such high hopes and like I said before, sometimes when things get complicated, it's important to get back to simple.

I love this photo.  The thought occurred to me that like all these beauties, there's room for all of us too.  Different and colorful, spread out everywhere, we all can belong.  This country has to recognize this.  A little give and take and we can correct this.  We have to.

Love one another and let's all try to not lose kindness or manners in these terrifying times.

Let's meet again,
M
