You guys… I really try not to get political in this space, rather choosing to inspire you with pretty photos, fun projects, and recipes you’ll want to make. But today… today I just can’t. I’m just too damn overwhelmed. The truth is that I don’t know what to say, especially with so much already being said. If ever there was a day to skip social media, this is it. Nothing is really helping to ease the mood, but I keep recalling one snippet over and over: the sun will continue to rise and set and rise… and on and on. I don’t know why that helps, because when I really think about it, my anxiety-fueled mind jumps to some really atrocious places we’ve been already. Regardless of how bad things may feel and how upended the world is, we have a fresh day and I’m trying so very hard to stay positive. I don’t entirely know what I’m being positive about yet… unity? progress? compassion? Unclear. But, alas, I prefer to distract myself. I have some really great posts of which I’m really proud scheduled for the next few days and I hope that they will inspire you and somehow soothe your soul a little bit.
And here’s a photo of a wiener dog because squeezing her is giving me some mild comfort. I’d love to hear what, if anything, is helping you today.
