I’ve had a hard time thinking about what to write lately because I’ve had some deep thoughts on my mind. That’s never a good thing. Especially when these thoughts make me feel both indignant and heartbroken. Blogging has often been an outlet for my emotions, but how do I channel these thoughts into anything coherent and useful when I feel this way?
And then I realized, maybe the blogosphere doesn’t need more angry words right now, maybe it needs more understanding. A little humor and a little bit of love to counter all the negativity, closed minds, and closed hearts out there. Maybe a little reminder that we all deserve respect and kindness.
Here we go:
You matter and you are loved. As you are loved, love others. Everyone matters to someone.
You deserve respect and happiness. So does everyone else. Don’t let your opinions or beliefs allow you to forget that.
You are not alone, in feeling alone. There are others who will understand and celebrate you for yourself and you can help by focusing first on the things you share with others as a way to understand and celebrate your differences.
You are beautiful and you are enough. There is no one definition of beauty or success. Don’t let envy or insecurity stop you from seeing it in yourself and others.
Everyone loves cookies. You can solve a lot of problems with cookies.
After a rough
week month year, I think we could all use a little more understanding and love.
